This is a scam!!!
I have just received a telephone call from somebody saying that they were from BT and that my internet connection had been compromised and that they want to check my computer.
I was asked to tap in various commands on my computer which they said would give me a unique reference number for my internet connection and they would then be able to see who was hacking into my system.
I said I was unwilling to do this and if there was a problem with my internet connection they should write to me.
The caller then told me that if I did not carry out what he was asking for then my internet connection would be cut off
I have not been cut off yet and I think this may have been some type of scam to access my computer
