Are you saying there are calls on your Sky bill to a scam number that you are saying you didn't make ?

@simbaaounds  If the calls were made by your wife thinking they were HRMC numbers then Sky won't reverse the charges.

 

When searching for any number online everyone is best going to the relevent companies official site for the correct number, if a number called was from a google listing it was likely a premium number and as a result people are liable for makling the calls even if it was in error

Like you I'm a customer here, Sky Employees are clearly identified as such.

Does your bill give the times and dates that these calls were made so you can then check against your phoes to see what calls and numbers were used on these dates ?

Re: scam calls

unfortunatly i cant get the bill as its blocked from my sky sighn in aswell, but with the phones being cut off we cant talk to a member of staff which is frustrating to try and sort this out, i do no the calls were made last week and im pretty sure it was an error from a fake hmrc number

Unfortunately, these firms claim to provide a service by calling their number they charge a fee for connecting to HMRC.  It's just legal.

I am just another Sky customer and my views are my own

Not sure what you mean by that, what happens when you login here:

https://www.sky.com/manage/bill/

 

You are going to need to login in here to pay this bill.
