Another Scam

Just had a call from someone claimimg to be from SKY.
He informed me that my equipment cover was coming to an end and did I want to renew it.
According to the bod on the phone I am paying 20 a month to cover the equipment. I am NOT.
I can't remember how much he wanted, a couple of hundred for 2 years.
I asked him for my account number he just gave me some random numbers.

Just for information the number used is
01612401867

Thanks Tregonsee

That number does look familiar. I think they might use it for all different scams.

Simple enough - get your wife to say to the caller that she's Detective Inspector Jane Freeman (for example) and how does the caller know your wife? Then go on to say the caller has phoned to a crime scene, etc, etc. That usually frightens the life out of them and they hang up.
