Call from 8488112 scam?

Hi. 

Just received automated call on landline from "8488112". 

Call said Internet being switched off in 4 hours due to faulty router and to contact service provider to authorise new router or press *1 to be connected. 

Is 8488112 a valid virgin media number?

TIA

Hello

With the information you have given, I do believe it is a scam it it quite common at the moment, if you had answered the call would have asked you to press 1 to speak to a tech.

see the security forum for the latest attempts at phishing https://community.virginmedia.com/t5/Security-matters/bd-p/Internet_Security

Yup, it set of my "dodgy AF" alarm so just hung up but thought I should check.
