A friend has just phoned me to say she received a scam phone call today.  The Indian sounding caller asked for her by name and then told her she had agreed to pay them  £49 to stop telemarketing calls to her telephone.

She knew that she hadn’t and apparently got into an argument with the caller who refused to take no for an answer!

I’m guessing that they were hoping she would fall for the scam and were going to ask her to “confirm” her card details so they could help themselves to her money.

They gave her a phone number, but she thinks it was fake.  I haven’t reproduced it here and she thinks it was actually the phone number of a legitimate business.
