ISP recorded message call

Hello and good day , was woken this morning with my landline ringing . Was a recorded call supposedly from my isp telling me my internet would be cut in 24 hours due to illegal activity and I could press 1 to speak to someone , thought it may be a possible scam so didn’t press 1 and just hung up . Can someone please confirm if this is a practice virgin media carry out or is just a suspected scam as I thought ? The number that rang was 01258346776

thanks and regards confused9

Re: ISP recorded message call

Complete scam attempt, VM would never contact you to warn you about having a service terminated. For example, if it was due to illegal acitivity such as pirating music/films you'd receive a copyright infringement notification letter through your door as well as an email, even then they wouldn't cut the service. Although if you failed to pay your bill on time due to insufficient funds in the account then the services would be temporarily suspended until you call them to settle the outstanding bill before they reinstate the services.
