Likely Scam/Phishing Text Received This Morning

Joining in

I'd like to report what looks like a phishing scam I've just received.  The text reads,

'We were unable to validate your billing information. Please confirm your current info to avoid your line being suspended' There's also a hyperlink virgin-ecare-login-in. This looks like a blatant phishing scam and I'd like to make the requisite people aware within VM and so customers aren't duped.
