Fake phone call from Virgin Media security

I have  this morning had a phone call supposedly from V M security. The guy had an Indian accent stating his name was Steve Wilson and said that my I P address had been compromised and it might be hackers. He wanted my to use one of my devices to login to give me a special code . He was quite convincing and even said he was from Virgin head office in reading . 

Having had quite a few suspect calls recently I knew it was a spam  as it started as a silent call and had the number of 02131 205619 

These calls are getting quite sophisticated now  so making people aware so no one is caught out .

Re: Fake phone call from Virgin Media security

Hi Jay9, 

 

Thank you for your post. 

 

I'm sorry you had this experience - and I 100% can confirm it wouldn't be us - we would never ask to do anything like that. 

 

Please remain vigilant. 

 

Cheers.
