Virgin Mobile Calls or Scam Calls?

Last night I received a call from someone claiming to be from Virgin Mobile telling me about a reward scheme because i am a long-standing customer.  He knew my name and that I was PAYG, but that doesn't prove he was from Virgin Mobile.  I've had similar calls previously and they all wanted me to give my password in order to process the reward.  In all cases I hung up.

The number was 0800 183 6417  - can anyone confirm if this is Virgin Mobile or a scammer.  

FWIW, I never give out any details by phone because I don't trust any calls of this type, even if it means missing legit rewards.

Re: Virgin Mobile Calls or Scam Calls?

If it's from Virgin Mobile then why do they never say anything then they hang up.

I don't want to change my mobile tariff so please tell them not to call!

If I eventually want to change anything then I'll call Virgin Mobile myself.
