#889760 - 25th Jul 2014 2:21pm Another BT Scam.
Pinzgauer
Unregistered


A VERY convincing looking message flopped down the wires this morning. A message from BT saying there had been problems with my last payment. Could be bank details change, change of address etc. Confirm your account by clicking on the link blah blah blah... The odour of a large economy sized furry rodent seeped out of the pooter. Obviously didn't click on the link. Instead I phoned BT. They confirmed it was a scam. A very helpful bit of info gleaned from BT which was new to me, was that if you click on the BT logo (top left of message) and it's genuine, you'll be forwarded to the main BT page. IF it's from one of those nice foreign parentless individuals, then nowt happens. It's a dud!

Just thought I'd pass this on. I'm no dummy (shut-up at the back!), but it did look pretty convincing with the design layout, terminology etc.

If in doubt click on the BT logo and NOT the link. Alternatively, phone BT to verify.

Agreed, but..... in this particular event, I'm anticipating a Grade "A" nark with BT over my next bill which will be due anytime now. All to do with a call-out charge disagreement. Hence watching any incoming BT stuff carefully. It costs nothing to phone BT to query things - assuming you can understand Call Centre speak in some of the furthermost reaches of our Empire ! grin

Sorry but don't get too comforatable with what they told you. A Web page or an E-Mail having a legit-looking Logo (image) with a hyperlink that takes you to the the real BT page, is no guarantee whatsoever that it's not a scam. Anyone can put such an image on any web page or any E-Mail.

The scam mongers have now started adding a link under the BT logo which goes to their site, same as clicking the link they give lower down the page.
It ends in .pk at the moment. No prizes for guessing where that might be, but probably false anyway...
