I pay my telephone bills on line. Today I received three emails purporting to be bills, two for my Vodaphone mobile account, and one for my BT telephone account, amounting to something over a thousand pounds: not bad for two grumpy old people who hardly use the phone!
At first glance these emails looked plausible, and only on closer inspection did I realise that the incoming email addresses were wrong, and of course receiving them so close together is suspicious. Not to mention that the sums involved seemed, to say the least, unrealistic.
I have spoken to both providers, who assure me this is a scam, but as it’s one I’ve not heard about before, I thought I’d spread the word. If you receive a mind boggling telephone bill, simply delete it!
