This scam is circulating again (still?).

Over the last day or two, I have received a couple of calls claiming to be from BT Openreach (all the people I spoke to sounded south Asian). Both suggested my Broadband is slow / noisy. An obvious scam but I decided to find out what they wanted. The second (after a few minutes) passed me to his "supervisor" who said I needed to press the Window-key and R - a precursor to installing software to take over the computer - at that point I told the bloke to "eff off" and hung up.

Anyone else having these annoying calls?

My wife had one of these people going for ages by going on about the funny key (fn = function) which is next to the Windows key. He eventually realised he was being taken for a ride and swore at her.
I usually ask them to send a prawn curry and poppadums.
Mrs A had one just now.

“But I haven’t got a computer,” she lied, glibly.

Which nonplussed the caller, who rang off.
Looks like this is the exact same one I had today.
