Hoax Phone calls from Virgin Media????

Hi, today i had at least 3 to 4 phone calls from foreign sounding people saying they were from VirginMedia and that someone has hacked into my email/modem and asked if i could just go to my pc and log on...i didnt . They also said i would have no service for 7 days while they investigate illegal access to my modem etc.

 

Was this you guys (i doubt it) and if not how the hell did they get my number to call me?

Re: Hoax Phone calls from Virgin Media????

I do wish people would search the Forum before posting.  This has been answered more times than I can count. Of course it wasn't VM. It's along standing and well known scam. The numbers haven't been got illegally or by theft or by disclosure. They are generated by an auto dialler using publicly available information on the allocation of number blocks made by Ofcom to UK telcos. 



I'm a Very Insightful Person, I'm here to share knowledge, I don't work for Virgin Media. Learn more
