Beware bogus telecoms dealers
Small businesses are under attack yet again by bogus companies trying to make a quick buck by defrauding them. This time the culprits are pretending to be BT wholesalers working on behalf of BT.
The story line is that BT can no longer justify maintaining it's very small business clients and is sub-contracting this part of its business to BNF Telecom. People who protest and say they are happy to stay with BT are told that they have no choice in the matter and that they must transfer their account to BNF. This has been confirmed by BT to be a complete fabrication.
There may be other operators pulling this same trick so if you are contacted by anyone trying to take over you telecoms account check with BT or your current operator before conceding.
