do, I rang the number back on Tuesday, but from my mobile phone, but
the voice message suggested they were busy.
They obviously recorded the fact that I had tried to ring them back,
for they rang me on my mobile this morning - again presenting a local
to me phone number, but with a very foreign and difficult to understand
He immediatly launced into suggesting my Ebay account had been hacked,
had I bought an HP laptop for £50 - I had, bought a new HP recently,
but for a lot more than £50.
Did I want to stop the transaction - playing along I said yes please.
He then asked me to log into my ebay account - at which point I told
him where to go.
Puzzle is - how did they know when ringing my mobile number, what my
local code might have been? What number to spoof? I could have rung
them from anywhere in the UK on my mobile, when I rang them on Tuesday.
