Information sent on behalf of Lincolnshire Police

Message from Lincolnshire Police HQ, Engagement Team, Thursday, 1st November 2018.


Lincolnshire Police have received a number of reports whereby a criminal contacts members of the public via telephone, claiming that they work for BT. The criminal often claims that there is a problem with your internet connection or Wi-Fi router. In some instances the criminal has asked for card details, access to a computer or laptop, or assistance in joint working with the National Crime Agency (NCA). This is fraud.


If you receive this type of call please report it to Action Fraud on 0300 123 2040. For police support or assistance please call 101.


You can contact BT Customer Service on 0800 800150.


Please help us spread awareness of this fraud by speaking to your friends and family members. Elderly members of public are often the target of this type of fraud.
