Information sent on behalf of Thames Valley Police

Oxford residents receiving a landline phone calls pretending it's from BT warning that your internet service will be cut within 24/48 hours, this is a SCAM to try and con you out of money, they'll try various tricks to try and get personal information from you and may becomes threatening, but don't worry, you are in charge of your phone.

Stay calm and don't give out any information.

If you don't give out your personal or payment details, they can't access your bank or BT account, so if you're not sure, just put down the phone.

Remember you're in control.
