Yes I've heard of this scam they try and say that your internet is going to be disconnected due to late payment then they try and get your credit card/bank details. They often target Spark customers many of them elderly. there's a few different versions of the scam. If your ever in doubt Ring spark yourself on their publicly listed phone number and ask if they called you. never give details to anyone claiming to be from Spark and hang the phone up.
