OFCOM Internet Service Scam

Alert message sent 11/02/2020 12:10:00

Information sent on behalf of Neighbourhood Watch Scotland


Beware of receiving an automated call purporting to be from OFCOM (The Office of Communications) stating that your internet service is going to be switched of unless you respond by selection one of the option offered up.

This is a scam and could end up costing you a considerable amount of money.

Previously this scam was being perpetrated under the guise of being from British Telecom.

Check out OFCOM's own link to the two types of scam ongoing a present using their organisations name

Many thanks from the coordinator of Westerton Neighbourhood Watch, East Dunbartonshire for highlighting this issue today.
