Legit email? youraccount@virginmediateam.co.uk

I got an email for my new agreement from this email.

youraccount@virginmediateam.co.uk
The link in the email goes to
virginmedia.icehosted.com

Although I received the email during the call with the team member, I am still suspicious because when I google the email above the results show that this email is not legit. I need further confirmation before I continue to sign anything.

Thank you.

Re: Legit email? youraccount@virginmediateam.co.uk

This address is what caught my attention on opening the email. icehosted is not a Virgin domain, virginmedia is just the subdomain. I thought icehosted was a signing service but upon Googleing there's not much detail about it. I would have thought the link would go to one of the Virgin domains. Everything else lines up except this email and the link.

of course everything else lines up, that's a how a spam email works. it "looks" right but the links to anything take you elsewhere.

common sense.

Even if the email was sent to me when I was on the phone to them and it has my name and some of the agreement details in there?

Because its still obviously phishing, or its obviously not, or you just don't know?

i'm out, because you've been told it's phishing, you linked to a another thread that also said the email address mentioned is not a virgin email address, and yet you still seem to want to believe it's legit.

i'm out.

Are you 100% sure that you were speaking to Virginmedia & not scammers posing as such?
Did you call Virginmedia or did they call you?
If you phoned them can you remember which number you used?

That email address as others have stated is NOT Virginmedia. If you gave them any personal details like credit/debit card details I would notify your bank or card issuer immediately.
