PHONE CALL FROM VIRGIN

Hi

I have just received an automated call saying they are from virgin saying that my internet is going to be cut off within 5 hours and that i need a new router and to press one to speak to someone about this, I did press one without thinking and gotr a rather rude person saying they were from virgin media and when I said sorry could you repeat that.  they then proceeded ask me if I was deaf or what !!!! I then put the phone down, I am assuming that this is a type of scam ??

could some one advise me as the intelligent part of my brain (small part) is telling me that this is a load of rubbish, bur I feel that always you have a small part of you saying yes, but what if ??.

anybody can help please just to reassure me

Thanks

Re: PHONE CALL FROM VIRGIN

Yes, the 'illegal activity' / 'broken router' calls are scams.
