NORTH YORKSHIRE COMMUNITY MESSAGING


North Yorkshire Police have been made aware of members of the public receiving phone calls from a male, speaking in a foreign accent, claiming to be from BT advising them that their computer has alerted them to problems in relation to their Broadband/Router. He claims that it is being heavily infected with a virus and as such BT need to send an engineer to their property the next day. But beforehand they require the customer to log onto their computer to facilitate a fault report for the engineer.
If the customer refuses to go along with their scam, the male becomes extremely abusive.
If you have been victim to such a phone call please contact Action Fraud on 0300 1232040
