Scam email?

Received the following email headed "Update from Virgin Media"

It is a scam, yes?

Re: Scam email?

Not seen that one before but it does look decidedly dodgy.  When you hover your mouse over the link (don't click!) can you see where it's really pointing to?

Re: Scam email?

Almost certainly!! (If it is written as shown!)

The style of the 'English' is poor .. (Wrong words and grammatical errors) eg Starting a sentence with 'And' amongst others.

Not a professional letter by any 'reasonable standards'..   ZvnK
