Utility Scams

Threatening to cut off my internet

A phone call fron an unused line (via 1471) threatening to cut off my internet connection because they were "receiving error messages" and wanted to change my IP address. THis is patently untrue as my ISP dynamically allocates an IP address at switch on time. A sub-continent accent male calling from Italy was kept calling for 25 minutes before he spotted that I had turned off my internet connection. His IP address was owned by Microsoft
