Yesterday my Tivo v6 box clammed up and I had to do a full power-down and restart to get things going again - took two goes to fix things and to reconnect to my VM wireless hub.
This morning I had a phonecall from 'virginmedia' to ask for payment details of my account and to restart my router as they had noticed that my service had been interrupted yesterday. The call was from 01636 ****** [somewhere in the midlands]..
I also had a text message on my vm mobile from the number 01584 ****** [number not recognised by Google] also asking for account payment details before they wanted me to switch off my router and restart.
Needless to say I ignored both messages but I just wanted to flag this up in case others had had a similar experience.
A few weeks ago I answered a call from someone in the midlands - a Birmingham number - that was trying to get details of my account - again they said that they were calling from VM and wanted me to restart my router.
