Re: Another scam today
It makes no difference whether your ex directory or not ,they [scammers] use auto dialers or software to generate phone numbers. I've had lots recently from numbers starting with 003244 and so on. On TV recently they showed a small box that companys can use , it generates hundreds if not thousands of numbers and rings them hundreds at a time .The first one to pick up recieves the recorded message ,this is how sometimes when you pick up the phone ,there's no one there [silent calls] because someone has just picked up a milli second before you.
Of course most of the calls involving the person claiming to be from Microsoft from India or Pakistan were caused by British Telecom. They, as you know transfered the call centres overseas giving these people access to the phone numbers and address's of millions of British households.
Shame on BT for this .These numbers have been passed around and sold for years , we may never see the end of the overseas calls.
