Re: re annoying 08000521251

Hi @kingfisher2,

Thank you for your post and welcome back to our community forums. We're here to help.

I'm very sorry to hear you're getting these unwanted calls. I can confirm that is a legitimate Virgin Media contact number, however, it's also possible for a number to be spoofed. When you answer the call does the caller advise of the reason that they're making contact with you?

In regards to your preferences change, can you confirm roughly when you made that change?

Thanks,

Re: re annoying 08000521251

he said he was virgin media, after a few seconds delay , I then hung up. I altered my preferences about 2 hrs ago. It will now take a few days to take effect. I expect I will get many more until it takes effect. What a pain.

Hi kingfisher2,

If you also have a mobile with VM you would also have to turn of the marketing there by logging into https://mobile.virginmedia.com/ecare/login 

This doesn't stop VM sending literature by post to the householder.

Please note it can take up to 28 days to take effect ..

Also there are no separate options to turn off telephone, post, text messages, tv edit magazine etc individually, so all forms of marketing will be stopped.

Re: re annoying 08000521251

Thank you for coming back to us @kingfisher2 

 

As you have said it can take a few days for this to come into effect. 

 

If you do still get marketing calls then please do let us know and we can double check things on this end.

 

Kind regards,

Zak_M

Re: re annoying 08000521251

Hi kingfisher2,

 

I'm sorry to hear this. I can appreciate this must be frustrating.

 

If you have now opted out of marketing preferences and still receiving calls purporting to be us, it is likely that the number is being spoofed and is a fraudulent call.

 

I'm going to pop you over a PM now so I can take some more details and look into this for you.

 

Thanks,

 

Beth
