This is an automated message stating the customer’s broadband will be disconnected in 24 hrs unless they dial one for technical assistance.
“Please do NOT follow these instructions, instead hang up.
“Digiweb do not ask our customers to do this. Scam calls from 0526136523 are fraudulent. Beware of other foreign numbers to.”
