Just had a call from the same number 01243862538 and I was asked if I was receiving a number of sales calls. I said yes and they rang off. I have a phone that bars numbers they will not get through again.

I got a call from this number from an indian sounding female claiming to be from microsoft explaining that my computer had a virus . I was asked to turn my computer on so that they could go through it with me . As I was reading my e-mails at the time it did not take much working out that these people are scum who are trying to con innocent people. Don't tell them anything but let them talk for as long as they want { they are paying for the phone call }

My wife has had a call from this guy around a dozen times this year. It is bordering on harrassment. She has been told that the calls will continue until she gives information. I took the last call and asked for his superiors or address and he told me there was none, or even a tele number. Can the police do anything about this? 01243 521256 shows on my caller ID!! What the hell are BT doing?

Had 2 calls from an "Asian" sounding man asking me my full name, sounded like kids in the background.
Did not give them any personal detalls but when i asked who was calling they hung up. Tried to call 01245 521 256 back but this number would not take incoming calls.
Please please do not give any details to them!!!!

Caller has called twice from this number asking to speak to Sky bill payer.    We don't have Sky - so it does seem like they are fishing.    He was very polite when I explained that we don't have sky.
