Good day to all.
This is officially my first thread and post.
I hope that I am in fact posting in the right category, please correct me if I am wrong admin.
And If a similar question has been posted and I missed it, sorry, again please just correct me or point me in the right direction.
This morning I was called by Telkom or a sales consultant claiming that she is calling on behalf of Telkom.
She asked if I have an ADSL line and a land line, which I have, but not registered to my name as I am co-habitating at the moment.
When I asked the consultant where she/ Telkom got my number from (which I have never given to them in any form), the phone was promptly put down in my ear without an answer.
I am very diligent when it comes to divulging my personal details, and only do so when it is absolutely necessary and even then I check credentials to the point of paranoia.
My question is;
Has this happened to anybody else recently?
And if so,
Does anybody have an idea where they might have phished ( pun intended ) out such details?
