I'm getting ticked off about A spoof Virgin Media Peron Man/Woman saying that our router is giving faults and i need to install ANYDESK SOFTWARE to find and sort out the faults!!
Yes, we are all getting them. Ignore it.
Obviously a Scam to gain access to your data -something needs to be done to stop vunerable people being misled and giving confidental information away to hackers.
They are using land line numbers in Birmingham 01216493877 being one,
No they are not in Birmingham, they are operating out of India using VoIP software that can even call you from your own number. So don’t suggest blocking the numbers as all it will do is block the genuine numbers that have been “cloned” by the scammers.
Could Virgin Media Please Flag up this issue urgently to help customers be aware of this evil practice?
Providers are doing as much as they can, but as landlines become more & more integrated with the internet it will just get even harder to stop them.
