Phillipines calls?

I am getting a ridiculous amount of calls from various 0800 numbers from a call centre in the Philippines saying that they are acting on behalf of Virgin media and they have all my details. Is this real or a scam. They call at all hours and it's very concerning

Re: Phillipines calls?

Hi Lmbaleman,

 

quite possibly genuine calls from one of Virgin Media's sales teams:

0800 064 3847
0800 952 8015
0800 952 2040
0800 952 2256
0800 052 0380
0800 052 0238
0800 052 0229
0800 052 1291
0800 052 0940
0800 183 9122
0800 408 9380

They are "freephone" numbers so if in doubt you can call back and you should be met by the standard VM greeting like calling 789 from your mobile  Smiley Happy

If you don't like to receive this type of call, you can ask to "opt out".

Either by calling 789 from a Virgin mobile. 150 from a Virgin landline or 0345 454 1111 / 0345 6000 789 from any other phone.

Re: Phillipines calls?

Hi Lmbaleman,

 

Welcome into the Community and thanks for coming in.

 

We have some great friends abroad that call on our behalf sometimes and they do tend to call fromthe numbers listed from AlexKid  Smiley Happy

 

I was wondering if the advice was helpful and if there's anything that we can do here, please let us know Smiley Happy

 

Take care.
