Please call ‭0161 818 7169‬, an automated message regarding tax avoidance requires your attention.

Voicemail recording: I have received information stating that I have committed tax fraud. I am being urged to call immediately to prevent further legal action being taken against me.

An automated message was received, threatening legal action for tax avoidance with the HMRC and requesting a call back. I highly doubt their credibility, typical Trevor!

Please refrain from calling me. If you continue, I will be left with no choice but to report this to the authorities. Do you comprehend the word "NO"?

This is a scam. They claimed that I had Virgin broadband, which I don't even have, as they don't cover my area. I have blocked their number.

I just received a call from the following number: 01618185874. This is the second time today, but the caller remains silent. It's really irritating and feels like a complete intrusion.

I had the exact same experience as the comments below. As soon as I mentioned that I would call BT back on my own, he abruptly ended the call. It's definitely a scam.

FRAUD ALERT: Beware of fraudulent calls claiming to be from VT (Virgin Telecom) or BT (British Telecom). These scammers operate from an Indian call center. They falsely insist that your internet connection will be shut down for three weeks due to hacking issues. It is important to note that no legitimate service provider would ever suggest such a long shutdown period. In one instance, when I expressed my disinterest and said, "I'm bored now," the scammer responded with inappropriate language, telling me to "F*** Off." This incident serves as a warning about the aggressive and unethical behavior of these imposters. Additionally, it is alarming that these scammers possess personal information such as your name and email address. We urge everyone to be cautious and report any suspicious calls in order to protect themselves and others from falling victim to this kind of scam. Stay vigilant!
