Hoax phone call?

Phone call this morning from number 01485 673040 claiming to be virgin media saying as we were having trouble with our service (which we have!) they would like to send us a new router. Requesting to press 1 if we wanted one.

Has anybody else had this call?

Re: Hoax phone call?

It’s a bogus call & the number may be spoofed. The area code is Hunstanton, which is miles from any Virgin Media infrastructure or offices. Never trust calls asking you to press numbers during a call, as this could lead to you paying for a premium rate call.
