Another FAKE Virgin Media Billing Email 21/04/19

Hi All

I've just received an email purportedly from Virgin Media telling me my billing details have expired and I need to follow a link to update these.  Looked to the Sender details and it's come from angela[Removed]     Easy to panic and reply but best to have a good look at the email and you start to see the 'glitches'.  Sorry Angela, not this time !

[Mod Edit - Removed remainder of email address]

Virgin Media's state of the art spam filters¹ will continue to disappoint with their inability to identify these phishing emails.

Almost certainly did not come from the name of the email account specified. The hacker has just used someone valid email address.
