      Phone Call from Sky

      22 April 2010
      I have just received a phone call from Sky.
      I have been asked to confirm some personal
      information so that a new password can be set
      up for my Sky account. This is for additional
      security. The number calling started 0845...

      most likely a scam, anybody can phone you and claim to be from Sky the bank etc.

      Currently there is one where the scammers are using a credit card script to the letter with one tiny change to get your details from you.

      I doubt if Sky would be using an 0845 number. Put the full number in the box here and you may discover who it is.
      Who called me? Free reverse phone directory.

      Scam. Why would Sky want to set up a new password on your account if you haven't asked them to do it.
