Warning - Phishing email

I just had a fairly convincing email telling me my account was scheduled to be disconnected.

 

As Follows:

 

Dear Sir/Madam,

We were unable to process direct debit payment for your latest bill.
Your account is scheduled for disconnection on 20 February 2017.

Please refer to the "Your Payment Details" section for confirmation of payment and more can be found at (LINK REMOVED)

Looking for something else?

There's a whole host of tips and guidance in our Help & Support area, including handy videos with step-by-step instructions. Whether you're using your computer, tablet, or smartphone, just go to (LINK REMOVED)

Kind regards,
The Virgin Media team

 

The "payment information" link leads to 

 

http://avenueoftheartsresidences(DOT)com/virgin.php

(for safety replaced . with (DOT) )

Just a heads up for everyone including VM Staff

Oh, BTW - is there an email address we can use to report stuff like this? I can't seem to find one.

Thanks

No email address but it can be reported via this page: http://netreport.virginmedia.com/netreport/index.php

Best to check the Security Forum for known issues as there is no need to report ones VM already know about. http://community.virginmedia.com/t5/Security-matters/bd-p/Internet_Security
