They phoned my mobile, said they were calling about my number, said I was being sent a new sim card on Friday to upgrade me to G4 I think it was (I am already on 4G) and how much better it is blah blah blah, that I keep my current number and credit etc but I did have to phone a number to get the sim activated. they asked how much a month do I pay, that the new plan without a contract was cheaper, they said I still get this, this and this. I said I currently get this amount on my plan. The person then tried telling me that as I am pre-paid that I'm not on a plan so I put them on hold, I then hung up and spoke with my Telco and they said that there doesn't appear to be anything on my file. I tried ringing the above number and it said number not connected. then I get a call from a similar number, this person quickly went silent after I said that I had spoken to my telco. I hung up. shortly afterwards the first number tried calling me again. They sounded Asian/Phillipino When I answered with our business name it was blank for a few seconds then a computer voice said goodbye - scam Caller: This is a computer scam
