Text message warning of data usage.

Every month keep getting text messages from Virgin Media telling me firstly that "We hope you're squeezing all the fun from your broadband service. We just wanted you to know you've now used 80% of your month's data.The texts are not from a number, all it says is virgin media.

I do not have a virgin media account. 

I then get further text telling me of charges.

Anyone tell me how this can happen please.

Re: Text message warning of data usage.

I get dozens of messages each week that have my name on, and they are all spam of one kind or another.
