Call from 00800 836411 last night at 19.47 uk time
Telling me new super hub being sent as old one out of date & that there’d be no charge. The person Asked me for first line of address & postcode and then asked if phone numbers ending in...(4 digits) were my numbers one was my landline ok but the other totally unrecognisable. Being super suspicious about anything being ‘offered for nothing’ I asked for email confirmation of this of this call and pending delivery of new hub by end of this week. So far no email received. Was this a genuine call from Virgin Media? Why the 00800 prefix - looks like an out of uk call?
Thank you the hub’s arrived and is set up and sorted. I just found it quite strange getting the phone call and the types of questions asked then no email follow up as I requested until the actual day of delivery. Also got a couple of texts but from an unknown mobile number without any indication that it was from Virgin Media. IT maybe would’ve helped if Virgin could’ve emailed first via our registered email address to advise this was happening.

Sorry to hear about the confusion with the call and you're right to be suspicious. I've found your details using the information we have on here and can see that a new Hub 4 has been sent out to you and it coincides with what you've given us. Our system identified a potential issue with your current Hub and package so to pre-empt any issues, our Equipment Team has made the necessary arrangements. I can see it's activated and hope you're enjoying your new Hub 🙂
I know you've mentioned you've received the Hub but I just wanted to give a bit more detail in case others receive the same call from that number and about a new Hub.
