Bell Internet Service / Cold Call to check service
I just received a cold call from someone with an Ottawa number saying they are from Bell and a technician is working in our area and they are checking our Internet connection. He gave me my address and phone number, I did not give him any information at all. He said he would scan the line and if everything was ok he would end the call if it was not he would send me a technician. I did not report any problems with my internet. In a split second he said "oh your internet connection is excellent! one of the best in your area" and hung up. He gave me a 1-888 number to call him back if I needed any other information. I immediately redialed the number he called from and it would not accept out side calls and the 1-888 number did not exisit. I tried calling Bell at 310-7873 to speak to someone and they were no help at all. Has anyone else had this type of call and is is legit?? I just don't want to have my identity stolen from them scanning my computer.
