Fraud call from Virgin Media Technical Team

Hi everyone just received 2 calls today saying that they are from Virgin Media's technical department and that I have a fault with my broadband. The last telephone number that called me is 01475454356. I played along a bit on the second call and what the guy was trying to get me to do was have a look at Event Viewer on my PC. He then said that I have a lot of malware on my computer and that is why my VM broadband is running slow. These are fraudulent calls from people saying they are Virgin Media whatever department. Please be careful and always call Virgin Media to see if they have really called. Please pass this message on. Thanks 🙂

01475454356 is a proper landline number for Greenock Scotland!

Re: Fraud call from Virgin Media Technical Team

Hi. had another call today saying that they were the Virgin Media Technical department. Telephone number that they were calling from is 01482 774245. They got a short and swift response from a family member and put the phone down very quickly. Once again, please don't fall for it. Please pass this message onto friends and family. Thanks Emily for passing this information to the relevant teams.
