Hacked old email account - please delete it

Joining in


I ceased to be a Virgin Media customer in November 2016 but the email address was never closed after 90 days as it should have been and has now been hacked, accessing my social media accounts. Please contact me via here and get the account deleted asap.

I received an email demanding bitcoin from me stating that this has been hacked. Virgin Media are responsible.

Hi @Scotty52 thanks for posting and welcome to our community.

Sorry to hear that your email address has been compromised and  sorry for any inconvenience and concerns this may be causing.  I would like to help you get this mailbox deleted. I am going to send you a private message. Please do keep an eye on your inbox.

Hi Lee,


Thank you for your message. I have sent you a message back 


It would be helpful if your team that respond to WhatsApp complaints are aware of this issue, which I see is affecting a lot of people. I was told that this account was definitely closed in 2017 despite showing screenshots of messages received recently.
