Virgin media dont give a crap about this issue unfortunately, have reported it loads , totally in denial that it is in anyway a fraud issue or that they have any responsibility towards their paying customers. but yes if everyone complained perhaps they would take more notice ..... not holding my breath tho !
With brilliant irony, my actual Virus Protection software co are now sending me e-mails saying I need to renew my subscription to them, even though I already have and its working and they have confirmed over the phone that the licence is fine!!! Unless this one is spam as well......
I gotta agree with all the other comments about this.
I am getting sick fed up to the back teeth of emails telling me I'm infected, or my subscription to Norton (Or McAfee) has expired.
Realistically it's bordering on harassment.
You delete the message from your client (or let a rule do it) - Log into webmail and mark it as Spam, for Virgin to do what? Hee & Haw it appears. With my work's Exchange server, as soon as 5 people have marked an email as spam the address is blocked and all copies of the mails removed from Exchange.
We never had Spam to the levels we do now, when Google provided the service.
These are the spam emails I have had today - none of them went into the spam folder - all into my inbox.

Please get onto this VM - is anyone there from the company?
These Norton & McAfee spam emails are driving us mad. Me & my husband are getting dozens & dozens a day. It's just getting ridiculous now. When is Virgin Media going to do something about this. We're both pensioners & although I am not a total technophobe it does sometimes panic us into thinking how easy scammers could trick us.
