I replied and told them to go #### themselves! You can spot these scam emails quickly and easily if you use a mail-client, such as windows mail. Just look to the senders email address.Usually anything to with a company such as Virgin will own their domain and email addresses will end @virginmobile.com etc. Spam/phishing emails will usually have a persons name or another domain name. Also, if you hover over any links, you will get the same idea. Links should take you to a recognised website, sch as virginmedia.com I've attached a screen print of the email I've got for people to see what I'm talking about. At the top, you see the incorrect domain name. At the bottom of the window, I've left the mouse hovering over the link, and the address is shown at the very bottom. It's clearly not from Virgin. Of course, you should always take caution even if emails do look genuine. Sometimes it's just a matter of spelling that can alert you.
Have also received the same billing scam as others this morning! It looked so authentic that I almost 'gave away' all my details, but rang NaWest fraud squad first.It was only at the last moment that I realised that the email address appeared fake that I deleted everything, so maybe Virgin Media should put out an alert pdq as I guess other folk might well be debited by whoever is behind this despicable set up!! Please let everyone know.
