Phone call

I have received numerous calls throughout the day from this number +8000183603 I decided to answer it 5 minutes ago and it was a woman saying she was from virgin media. Told me I haven’t been accepted for a pay monthly device but accepted for a pay monthly sim but I would need to make an up front payment so she can process it. As soon as I said I have never known a company ask for an upfront payment for a sim only deal she quickly hung up. I believe this is a scam

Re: Phone call

Not for a sim only deal so I suspect it was a scam.
Have you applied for a new phone contract? If yes I’m wondering how the scammers knew this.

Re: Phone call

The number you quote is very similar to a genuine VM outward sales number that is +8001836403

However it is best to be cautious as cli numbers can be spoofed.
