I was not present so my wife took a call telephone number 01268795768 A man said something like, "Your Broadband will be cut in 24 hours because your IP had been compromised.  I attempted to take the call but all I got was music.  Can anyone please let me know what this is.

Hi I have had the same thing too! But it was from a different number, I checked my SSE my internet provider and they told me it was a scam. I am worried that a scammer has my number so I think it best not to answer any calls from people I do not know in case it is a trick. i have been using this website to check all numbers to see if they are reported as scammers.

@EFgirl1  Scammers don't have your number - they have everyone's.  They use software that dials every possible number one after another, and if they connect to a real person they use "social engineering" (which is to say they ask leading questions, and say generic things) to fool people.

They can also buy lists of known phone numbers.
