Warning re phishing phone calls

Alert message sent 09/12/2019 18:37:00

Information sent on behalf of Neighbourhood Watch in Nottinghamshire


Dear Citizen

Earlier today I received a call on my land line from 02088767928. It was a recorded message claiming to be from BT Internet and advising there were issues with my Internet and to avoid losing access I needed to press ...... At this point I rang off. BT Internet is not even our Internet provider but, thanks to many warnings, I know not to take any action from this type of call.

A few hours later, my husband received a call on his mobile from 01422761225 from an individual who claimed to be acting for the Halifax Bank. She asked if we used Internet banking. My husband refused to answer and hung up. He checked the number to find the following:
