IP address compromised?

I have just received a phone call from virgin saying my IP address has been compromised (they rang from 01615286xxxx). I didn't follow through with their questions as I was worried it was a scam. How do I find out if I have an issue?

thanks Mel

Re: IP address compromised?

You have correctly identified this was a scam call. When they call again, just hang up on them without talking to them. Broadband providers do not make unsolicited tech support calls in this way.

The forum moderators have removed the phone number as the fake caller ID used by the scammers increasingly is being found to belong to innocent parties who are unconnected with the scammers.
