A phishing email from Virgin?

 

I have an email from : Virgin Team dionelllistaylor@gmail.com  with the title "Your mail box is full"    and the message asks me to login to "blueyonder.co.uk"    (blueyonder is in fact a link to virginmeddia1).    My first thought was that this is some sort of scam, perhaps using a legitimate gmail account.  Has anyone else had this?

Re: A phishing email from Virgin?

Ask yourself this, why would legitimate communication from Virginmedia be via a gmail account.

It couldn’t be a more obvious scam if the message has said, ‘please withdraw all of the money from your bank in cash and leave on a park bench at 9pm tonight, wait one hour and then your mailbox will start working’
