    I received a call today from BT Openreach saying my broadband would be cut off as they'd detected some unusually activity from my IP address. Slight panic what do I do?

    Well the usual thing is they get you to speed test your connection and suggest it was being compromised and then install Team Viewer so they can get access and look around your system. I said my broadband speed looks fine but can you tell me who my ISP is and my account number....click.

    Correct, had a similar call quite a few years ago when my young lad took it and was taken in. He finally realized what was going on when he could see the caller going through an album of family pictures so terminated the connection.
