Virgin Media

Via helpdesk <helpdesk@suncoastbbqservices.com

 

looked genuine at first glance but checked my bank and direct debit has been paid.

never click on any link in an email check from your own log in on web site

i have forwarded the email to phishing@virginmedia.com

Re: phishing email

I have had the exact same email - guessing that's why their customer service line is rammed and messaging is down as everyone is asking them the same question!

It looked suspicious with the sent email, however it does look pretty genuine.
