VIP Bundle for £1

Hi,just wanted to share with you and ask about opinion.

Yesterday I found advert on FB saying that someone,acting on behalf of third party company working for VM,was offering VIP Bundle for £1 for 12 months.

The guy said it was a New Year's offer and it would expire in 48 hours or so.

I made an order by phone and received email :

"Online order reference: VM*********,

Hi there,

Thank you for your recent order.

Please find below confirmation of the package you have selected.

VIP Bundle


Installation at no additional cost subject to property eligibility (usually £40)
£14.99 activation fee applies
12 month contract


Please keep an eye on your inbox confirming your account number, installation date or confirmation of any changes you have made to your existing account.

If you have any questions regarding your order give us a call on 0800 9522298 and we'll be happy to help.

Kind Regards.


The Virgin Media Team


Please note :

Calls to 084/087/09/118 service numbers are formed by a combined access charge and service charge. We set the access charge which is shown on your bill and is currently 36 pence per minute from your mobile and 10.25 pence per minute from your landline . For more information please visit http://www.ukcalling.info "

I thought that email was missing some bits.They forgot to mention the price of the bundle.Also the hotline number doesn't seem to be legitimate VM number.

I didn't give them debit card details (just sort code and account number).

The engineer visit has been arranged as well.

What do you think?A scam?

Re: VIP Bundle for £1

You've given away your account number and sort code. That is all they need. I suspect that by now your bank account will be empty. So I'd do more than phone VM. I'd phone your bank and check and plead for help. VM no longer market the VIP bundle. That is the giveaway!

I do not work for VM. The advice I give is based on my best understanding of VM policy and practice. You rely on it at your own risk.

Actually no - they need more than account number and sort code.. you 'give that away' every time you write a cheque..

Re: VIP Bundle for £1

My account is always empty anyway Smiley Wink

But you are wrong Howard.It takes a bit more to get an access to someone's money.

I have already talked to VM and they confirmed that the order has been placed.

So it seems to be legitimate.

Re: VIP Bundle for £1

The VIP bundle is advertised on their site and they have just changed it so it comes with two V6 boxes so I'm not sure where you get that they don't market it any more from.
