Installation

Hi,

I have received a text message saying work needs to be carried out outside before installation of my new wifi and to text CONFIRM if this is fine. The number is an 07 number so I am a bit cautious whether this is a scam. The number is 07480632160 - is this legitimate ?

Re: Installation

I believe that is a Virgin Media text service number and it's OK

Here's another thread regarding external work with same number mentioned

I know a bit about Wi-Fi, Telecoms, and TV as I used to do it for a living but I'm not perfect so don't beat me up... If you make things you make mistakes!

Re: Installation

Almost certainly not a scam. If it’s a scam, they will be asking for your bank details, date of birth, address or other personal details or get to to phone a premium rate phone number. Your call, as specified, did not do any of these.
