    Please be aware the is a new scam going around you may be contacted by EE, but most worrying this morning I received an email of what looked like a very official BT email, stating due to Brexit you need to accept BT new terms and conditions.

    You are asked to accept and follow the links, I contact BT by phone, this is quite a nasty scam.


    In 2005 I suffered a brain injury which has left me with mental and physical disabilities.
    Unfortunately I do get confused and get things wrong, so I apologise in advance.

    I don’t know what the EE scam is unless it’s the one I came across last week?

    My local EE network mast is off line at the moment with a fault but the SIM I use is with Plusnet who use the EE network so I used the EE network status checker and it said they know of the fault and there working to fix it.

    The EE site has an option to put your mobile number in and they then alert you to when its fixed so I did that but remember I’ve got a Plusnet SIM not an EE one but it seem to accept my number.

    Coincidence or not but 2 day’s later I had an SMS so say from EE saying my direct debit had failed and I would be cut off if I didn’t follow the link enclosed to fix it.

    I never follow links I get anyway because its so dangerous but the scammers are using clever gear if they have managed to see I’ve access an EE site even though I’m not an EE customer, well not directly anyway.

    <p style=”text-align: left;”>I had three scam HMRC tax rebate emails and four scam emails about tv license renewal. In the last week.</p>
    So be wary of any email asking for any personal info or basically check everyone as there are so many scammers out there.
    Not just emails but text messages too, even if it looks like it’s from a number related to you. It may not be.

    It’s easy, never ever click on an unsolicited link, whether email or text, if it is a company that you owe money to they will find an alternative way to contact you, an actual letter will eventually find it’s way through your door.
