Re: Your latest Virgin Media Bill cannot be processed - Phishing Scam Alert

Yeah some cheesy people are at it again.

You can see these as fake because.

 

1. If you were going to be disconnected, you would be notified will in advance.

 

2. VM never ask for billing details via email or ask you to go to a site to do so.


But some people fall for it unfortunately :\

Majide!

Re: Your latest Virgin Media Bill cannot be processed - Phishing Scam Alert

Today received one of these phishes, so it's still going on.

"Your latest Virgin Media Bill cannot be processed"

and so on.

Funny on it comes through virgin media mail!, Virgin don't seem to have any way to report this type of bogus scam issued on their behalf, just great isn't it.

BEWARE AND IGNORE

I have also received one of these email's dated the 7th April 2016, however my suspicions were raised when I saw "we've scheduled for disconnection".
