VB1: Did someone just try to scam the amazing VB1? [ A VB1 THREAD ]

Just wanted some info on this....

Got a call from someone who explictly stated they were from Sky. They were indian sounding, and I was immediately on guard since I’ve never had a call off Sky that wasn’t from Livingston!

Anyway, I asked again to confirm they worked directly for sky, and he confirmed he was from “Sky Dispatches” (what?!) and wanted to send me a viewing card.

I’m a bit of a geek, use the forums on digitalspy etc, and generally know months in advance when they are issuing new cards, so I assume this was a scam.

What did they want from me? Luckily I didn't even confirm I had sky, so it must have been a big fat Fail.

inb4 comedy replies, followed by some poor soul who somehow doesn't know about me.

maybe phishing for your viewing card number, so they can clone it, just a guess

until this morning I thought all sky calls were handled at livingston,but this morning I had to call them and since the 3 different people I spoke to were Indian,I guess they must have a call centre there too?

Maybe they are stealing viewing cards to use to strengthen the commonwealth games buildings?!

is this definitely an official VB1 thread?!

Today a guy touched me in my special place in the street and said he was VB1. I shrugged it off cos I thought WOW VB1 but I'm being ultra cautious now, do you think I was scammed earlier?
