Suspicious Text

Received a text tonight saying it was a reminder from Virgin Media that they will be carrying out work tomorrow in Upminster.  It is very odd as I haven’t received any notification beforehand and it’s not from a number I recognise. 

can anyone advise if this is true or a scam ?

Re: Suspicious Text

I received that kind of text message this time last year.

One message a week before the planned work and one message the day before. The service was interrupted the following day as advised. Got a final message at the end of that day once the work had been completed and the internet connection came back on again.

The messages I received were for information only (not prompting me to do/respond to anything).

Re: Suspicious Text

Texts like this are usually legitimate. You can tell if they do NOT 1) ask you to phone a number 2) want your bank details or 3) request personal details, then they are ok.
