Trafford Trading Standards are warning people to be aware of a scam caller pretending to be from BT.

The caller says that your BT phone line and internet are about to be switched off if you do not respond immediately.

You are then asked to press 2 on your phone which takes you through to someone who will then ask for bank details to take a card payment over the phone.

This is a SCAM – BT will never cold call and ask for payment in this way.

Trading Standards advice is never to give personal of financial information to cold callers of any type.
