Nuisance Calls From Virgin Media

I've been bombarded with Service Upgrade phone calls at least 11 times in the last week, from this number, 0800 183 6416, to my mobile.

I explained on one call I don't want to receive these calls, I even called 150 and requested they stop pestering me but still it continues.

I have removed Sky Sports for the winter, and upgraded to the Full House package already. 

How do I get them to stop calling me.

If I want to upgrade I will call VM.

I'm guessing this is a scam?

Re: Nuisance Calls From Virgin Media

No it's actually genuine, it's the outbound sales team, often offshore. I'm guessing they'll be trying to get you to upgrade to the V6 box or take out a Virgin Mobile contract. Best thing to do is block the number if you don't want to hear from them again.

Depends what phone you have. If you tell me the model I'll have a look.

Re: Nuisance Calls From Virgin Media

Thanks very much for that, I have now blocked the 2 numbers they use.

I did get a call from them yesterday before I blocked them, in no uncertain terms I told them to remove my details, I didn't get a call today, first call free day for 11 days.

Cheers Rich.
