Netflix Scam

Joining in

I have recently been charged £15.99 on My October, November & December Bill for a Netflix subscription that I have not taken out or agreed to, I have spent over 5 hours on the phone this weekend to many customer service agents who have call me a liar, been rude and very unhelpful, still unresolved, I have contacted Netflix who has told me the email address associated with this Netflix account and it has nothing to do with me, I have explained this to customer service who are still unwilling to deal with this as a fraudulent request on my account and will not reimburse or follow this up with an investigation, as a matter of coincidence around the same time that this subscription was requested in October I had a engineer attend my property, looking through the forum this is not a singular issue as other customers have experience the same thing, is this a core issue with virgin media that engineers and customer service agents are scamming virgin media customers, is this something that should be brought to the newspapers attention because I am more than willing to do so. 

I would be interested to see how many others have experienced this issue. 


Ok so no still not resolved

yet again I have a £5 charge on my account for this month. 

An additional amount of 15.99 appear last month 

so as a result of the amount under credited to my account the figure you ask I felt like I was still owed was £104.97

i can not ring Netflix and cancel as this will cancel my Netflix account I have had personally with them for years or is it someone’s else’s account I am been charged for again. 

the new total amount I have been overcharged is £20.99

so in total the amount that still needs applying to my account is £125.96


this is getting ridiculous and I am honesty going to go to the ombudsman and when it’s found that you are yet again in breach of your contract I will terminate. 

Hi carrie88,

I am truly sorry that the Netflix billing issues are still ongoing. It sounds like this issue keeps snowballing and we'd really like to put an end to it and get it all sorted for you.

I've sent you over a private message now so I can take your details and have a look. Please look out for my message over at the purple envelope.

Thank you


Hello. Please can you also help me with this as I have the same issue and your team has simply directed me to the 'Netflix Team' and I don't know what that is.
