Re: Is this a scam?

the senders email was "sbcglobal.net"... brief search indicates that they are a notorious scam source.. so guess that answers the question..

Definitely a scam. A big giveaway is that it begins "Dear Ntlworld User" rather than addressing you by name or quoting your Virgin Media Account number.

Re: Is this a scam?

Hi @TryingToBeHappy,

Welcome back to our Community Forums! Thank you for your post, and I'm sorry to see that you have been a target of a phishing email!

This definitely does not look like something we would send you, especially as @coenoby advised, you were not addressed by your name.

Please forward this email to phishing@virginmedia.com where we can review this email and report it. You can find more information about phishing emails on our website: https://www.virginmedia.com/help/what-is-phishing.

Let us know if you need any further help or assistance.

Thank you.
