The callers claim to be from BT.

One victim today writes: "Just had a phone call from this number. Experience is the same as others here. Indian guy calling from 'BT' call centre claiming my WiFi had been hacked by FIFTEEN other devices!!!!

"He then told me I'd have my internet disconnected until my WiFi had been made safe (that's a first!).

"He asked me to sit down in front of my computer or laptop (rather presumptuous that I have one!), at which point I told him I didn't have either.

"He insisted that what needed doing had to be done on a laptop.

"I told him I'd have to get one and call him back. At which point he hung up. Calling from BT my ****! Scammers"

Slam the phone down on these people!
