Over the last few weeks I have been getting increasingly frequent calls from 08000521251 which I believe is from virgin media. When I answer the call noone brothers to speak and it is very frustrating as I work shifts in a hospital and don't need disturbed. I have already selected in preferences that I do not wish to be contacted by phone. I really object to being hassled to this extent with no idea what it is they are trying to contact me for.
Can somebody tell me why I am being contacted so frequently?
If it continues I will be moving from virgin as this intrusive behaviour is ridiculous.
My mother has been receiving calls from this number for the last four days in a row asking to talk to me. I've contacted Virgin and they have told me that no one has been trying to contact me. I don't have a mobile phone and only gave Virgin my mother's number for when a repairer needs to contact us, so whoever they really are, they must have got the number from Virgin Media. The real Virgin Media told me to contact the Telephone Preference Service to get the number blocked but the TPS have informed me that they can't block numbers.
Just about all of Virgin's sales/Customer Service is sourced out to different third party's across the globe, so it's not uncommon for that one side does not know who or what the other side is doing/calling 😵
If your number is known by Virgin - it is shared with Virgin's 3rd party's, all in the link here

Don’t forget that a number may be registered to VM, but you can NEVER assume that is them calling you. It’s very easy to spoof numbers on caller ID, just ask all the people who have thought it’s their bank calling and lost a large amount of money.
