Scam callers say they are VM

I've had a number of phone calls from a call center saying that they were from Virgin media technical security side and there has been a problem reported about my hub.
They will take you through a process and will try to get access to your PC/laptop!
Just ask them to go through the security questions and they will hangup 😂

Just a warning guy's. I know this type of thing has been reported before but it doesn't hurt to post it again!

Being with the TPS doesn't  stop these calls!
The number this morning was 01423540957 but they have many more numbers!

Re: Scam callers say they are VM

These are well known scams. Just hang up. VM will never phone you about this kind of issue. And the phone numbers the scammers use are spoofed. They aren't real. They can't be traced.  TPS doesn't stop calls. Reputable direct marketeers refer to TPS lists and don't call. The scammers don't look at TPS lists. They are scammers. Well done. Can't give too many warnings about this. Hopefully people will listen.
