Have I been scammed?

So I received a text message earlier today which says this: 

“We have faiIed to pre authorise your monthIy payment. Please update your biIIing detaiIs using the foIIowing form: https://virgin.media-identity.com/”

It came under the usual Virginmedia name on my phone that all other messages come from but something just seems odd about it as it asked for a lot of information about me and bank details.

Yes it is clearly a phishing attempt.  The url in the link is definitely not a genuine virginmedia one and they would not contact you in that way for account issues in any case.

Re: Have I been scammed?

Did you click on the link?
Did you give them any information?
