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

    Banned
    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.

    sounds dodgy, cool story though bro!

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

    Massive fail then - even if sky did call I couldn't be arsed to walk over and faff at getting the card out.

    Losers!

    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?
