Bt Openreach Scam
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?
