Warning ! Scam phone calls from EDF6 Replies
Hi, all of you, be aware of the following : today, I got a recorded phone call advising me that my electricity consumption was already higher than last year same period and I had to call the following number to try to solve the problem : 0899961716. Very concerned, I called the number straight away, got a voice mail who seemed to come from the EDF company, was put on hold - but that is usual for everything...- , put the loud speaker of my phone on and, whilst doing other things, waited... 35 min before the telephone call got cut-off! I then decided to call my usual EDF line, did not wait as long as that, got an operator who confirmed that both my EDF readings were much lower than same period last year, so nothing to worry about. I told her about the recorded message I received and gave her the number I gave you, she said she already heard about that number and it was nothing to do with EDF... Fortunately, I had called from my land line, but if I had called from my mobile, I would have had an extremely unpleasant surprise on my next mobile phone bill!!! I hope this helps you not to fall into it as I did! BR, N.
