New Scam 16/11/23

On our wavelength

Received a email "An Update from Virgin Media" From " Virgin Media WebTeam <>"

EMail looks really good but Not so good.


Apologies for the inconvenience. We require an urgent account update as payment processing has failed. To avoid service disruptions, kindly log in promptly and update your card details.


Knows their stuff

If it takes anyone's fancy you can annoy these guys by using dummy card details and sending them best wishes by way of a carefully worded fake email address. 

I'm not a Very Insightful Person (just a little bit, sometimes). I don't work for Virgin Media (but then nor do any of the offshore customer service agents).

Hi, Have been using the information for ages, As a OAP I get attacked allot and can keep phone scammers tied up for days sometime weeks at a time.
