Scam calls from Sky?

Someone's always at it. This time it's another Sky peddler. The forum message reproduced here come from the excellent SatCure forum, actually named The SatCure Review, a newsletter, is one of the best on the net, I reckon, and the main SatCure web site is a goldmine of information and digital TV hardware.

The scam goes like this:

"International" calls by people claiming to be from Sky saying you'll shortly receive a new viewing card. Don't be taken in. It's a cold call using a list. When asked, they cannot say what Sky equipment or service "they" had supplied, nor can they confirm how you pay for Sky.

The more you tell them, the more ammunition they'll have to part you from your money.
