Our land line telephone allows us to transfer our calls to another phone or mobile phone.

I was pleased today that I had decided to transfer calls to my mobile telephone when I went out, as I received the following call from a foreign female, just before 17.25hrs.

Caller   I am calling from BT accounts.  Could I speaK to the account holder.

I thought if you calling from BT you would know who the account holder was.

Me   No the account holder isn't available.

Caller   I need to speak to the account holder because there is money owing on the account of £12.23 and if it is not paid immediately the telephone will be disconnected tonight.  That means no incoming or outgoing calls.

I knew we didn't owe anything on the account  and the contract isn't up for renewal- but what if it was a confused person she was speaking to? 

Me   If there is any money owing on the account it is BTs fault and I am in a public place and do not wish to discuss private business.

Caller   No we sent you a new contract with the account for £12.23 which you must pay now to avoid disconnection tonight.

Me   We haven't received an account or the contract you are talking about so send it again.  Infact could I take your telephone number so I can ring you back because I believe your telephone call is a scam.

With that the caller hung up - can't understand why Rolling Eyes  Twisted Evil 

Hope she rings back tomorrow for round two Suspect

Hi Joyce, that sounds so typical of phone calls nowadays.  I don't suppose you managed to capture a number did you?  They usually come up as International or Out of Area on my phone, so I don't answer them.  Unfortunately, without a number I am unable to block them from my phone, but I do have a good collection going from UK callers.  Very Happy 

These people are the scum of the earth, lets hope they are too scared to ring you back, but a man might call next and try to intimidate you (some hopes eh!)

Cheryl it was a private number and some of the business people who call us, telephone numbers come up the same, so had to answer the call.

Have tried to report to BT this morning but the queue was too long - made me wonder if other people had the same telephone call last night.
