Phone scam purporting to be from Virgin Media

Just had a lady from what sounded like an Indian call centre telling me she was from Virgin Media, there was a problem with my internet and I needed to be in front of my PC so she could help me fix it.  I was suspicious so I asked her to call back 5 mins later.  I checked the number she phoned me from and in was Preston No 01772 231xxx.  On checking that has been used several times by scammers claiming to be from Virgin or Open reach with the same type of story.  She tried ringing back on 01474 047xxx (Gravesend) and 01471 314xxx (Isle of Skye)

Beware!
