Re: spam email

For future reference…

No reputable business would issue such a time threatening communication; forward to phishing@virginmedia.com and delete; if during the send process a Spam Content Found warning is shown then Virgin Media are already aware of it and have started to block it.

Checkout posts by @Int-Sec on the Security matters forum for the latest news on such targeted scams.
