I had a call earlier from a gentleman with an Indian accent who claimed to be calling from BT Openreach and said there was a problem with my internet. I had not experienced any difficulties lately so I asked him what the nature of the problem was. He said he had been receiving error measures concerning my connection which resulted from it having been changed from a private to a public network. Although I am not really qualified to comment on the credibility of this claim I was not convinced and told him that this sounded like a load of bollocks and he hung up on me.
I have since been wondering whether my profanity was justified. I’m pretty sure it was a scam call but I suspect the caller may only have been a minion serving some higher villainy, possibly on a zero hours contract and/or minimal commission while attempting to support an extended family, although I’m not really familiar with the hierachy within the scamming community.
(I did have a call some weeks ago from another potential scammer offering to arrange my covid vaccination in exchange for a fee. I was extremely rude to this one and I’m not sorry for that.)
