BT phone scam warning!

Trading Standards are warning all to stay vigilant for scam callers pretending to be from BT after two Devon residents lost a combined total of £39,000 to these scams in December 2018.

If you receive a cold phone call – even one that seems to come from a reputable company – asking you to reveal personal or financial details or convincing you to transfer money, put the phone down without giving any information.

If you are worried it may have been a genuine call, find the real company’s phone number on paperwork or the internet and call them to check. Use a different phone or wait a few minutes to ensure your phone line is clear.
