I have just had a call from 01628825718 looking it up on Google it is from Littlewick Communications, Thatch, Jubilee Road, Littlewick Green Maidenhead. It was a recorded call stating my BT broadband had been hacked and was going to be cut off in the next twenty four hours. They then just rang off. Has anyone else had any calls like this?

It is worrying that they can use a Maidenhead number. I wonder if Littlewick Communications know that their number is being used?

I am also getting a spate of emails saying my car tax payment has failed and giving a link to get it sorted.

Given that:

  • I do not pay my car tax by direct debit so I would know immediately in the unlikely event that payment did fail
  • The email comes to my business email whereas the car belongs to me personally so any communication relating to comes to my personal email address

This is clearly a scam.

I forward this to NFIBPhishing@city-of-london.pnn.police.uk and then delete it.

I am getting reminders that my TV licence is running out the following day. It looks very believable and allows you to pay by credit card.
