Internet Router Scam! (Posted 26/01/2019)
Some local residents have been receiving phone calls (usually automated) stating that there is a fault with their router and that they should "press 1" to be put through to and engineer who can fix the problem!
This is a scam!...do not press 1 or engage in conversation with the caller. There are several other versions of this type of scam being reported so just "hang-up".
If however you do have a real problem with your internet connection then find the phone number for your service provider (usually in the contract letter you received when you signed up with them) and call that number!
