I’m getting so much too. 15 today and it’s been going on a while now. I am going into webmail and marking as spam but not working.

Re: Daily Spam re Norton/Mcafee

Me too - last week really annoying constant first Norton then McAfee as well.. Got 8 spam (or more likely phishing) emails from Norton and McAfee fake accounts just today. Previously only about one random spam email a day.

eg We Stopped Something Dangerous! Renew Now to Stop Viruses and Threats Foreve subject line

Purports to be from @Mcafee2020 but hidden address is support@tsongbrio.co.uk

All sent from different accounts so even blocking domain does nothing to stop it.

What's going on Virgin?

Re: Daily Spam re Norton/Mcafee

Yes, same here, started a 2-3 weeks ago, seems to be getting worse if anything.  Concerning if we're all getting these, makes you wonder where they got our emails from.  If it is of interest, mine is an @ntlworld.com address which I rarely use for anything new nowadays, so curious it has just started getting these dodgy emails.

No ,,, absolutely not ,, there’s another thread regarding this issue also ,, the more people complain the hope is virgin might take some action to guard their customers from fraudulent emails , the customer advisor I Spoke to was particularly rude & unhelpful.

Re: Daily Spam re Norton/Mcafee

This is now totally out of control. I would say that hourly I am getting Norton and McAfee phishing emails. It’s non stop day and night.

Now they are a joke, ridiculously poorly put together. Bad altered screenshots.

Can’t VM filter these or stop them it’s a tsunami now! I do put them in block, but the sending address keeps changing. The content however is very similar so surely VM can stop that, or monitor where this considerable amount of E Mails are coming from. 
Clearly fraud trying to get your bank details, VM should be working with the police to stop it.
