Please do not ignore this to avoid account timing out within 24hrs.

 

Am I right to assume it's phishing?

Re: Suspicious email?

Yes, there are many similar examples reported by the internet security team in the Security forum.

Re: Message from Email Admin?

No, this was a scam email. Follows a similar kind of pattern to others in VM's security bulletins

Re: Message from Email Admin?

That's a scam.

Genuine emails from Virgin Media would be sent from an @VirginMedia.com (or very similar) address. Never a hotmail one.

Not to mention the "click here to update your details" - that's a classic phishing technique.

Delete the email.
