TalkTalk customers are being warned about scammers who managed to steal account numbers and names from the company’s computers

We are already hearing reports of this locally, don’t let them access your machine.

Your internet service provider has no reason to do so!

The scammers appear to be using the stolen details to trick people into thinking calls are coming from legitimate TalkTalk customer service staff. People are then tricked into handing over bank details or into signing up and paying for security software and services they do not need.
