Isle of Wight Council

We have had reports from residents saying that they have received calls from a company called Imperial Telecom. They are telling residents that they have taken over BT bill payments and can even save them money! They are trying to obtain residents bank details to set up a direct debit – THIS IS A SCAM. If you receive a call from this company please hang up straight away, no legitimate company would contact you in this way to advise you of changes to your payments and would NEVER ask for bank details over the phone.
