Is webteam@virginmedia.com a legitimate email address used by Virgin Media?  If not,  and it is very convincing at first sight, why is Virgin not shouting from the rooftops for people to block it ??

Further to my last message.  I noted when adding the offending webteam@....address to my blocked list, I discovered it was already blocked.  However the sender evaded this by putting a 'favourites' star ( on iPad) character in front of the webteam@... address and this obviously worked.  When added to the blocked senders list, this 'star' does not appear - so there are apparently two blocks on the offending sending address.  Suggest this vulnerability needs to be addressed.

Also suggest there is a prominently 'pinned' list of all reported virgin-related credible addresses to make it easier for customers to spot spoofing.
