    Odd phonecall

    Just had an odd phone call from someone claiming to be from Sky claiming the the 'breakdown cover' had expired on my Sky box and they would take me through the procedure for renewing it.

    Very strange as the Indian person on the phone sounded very similar to the person who rang me the day before claiming to be from Microsoft wanting to sell me a new license key. And the fact I independently sourced all my Sky boxes so Sky have nothing to do with them.

    Just thought people should know that it sounds like they are trying a variation on the scam.

    I'm not the only person to have been called.

    Friend of the family was called and they introduced themselves as being from BT internet and then half way through the call started referring to themselves as Microsoft, he hung up at that point.

    had that call few months back, told them i was not interested and they said it would be a £65 call out for an engineer if the sky box failed and i replied then i will cancel sky then. end of conversation

    that scam was only on the telly the other week!

    As soon as i get a call from an Indian Call Centre i put the phone in the dogs bed and let them listen to some heavy panting.
