Phone scam

Hi , 

we received a text saying we can get the new iPhone 12. So we rang a number and went through the process. But decide not do go ahead as we didn’t trust the number. 
The number being 0800 052 0886. 
Is this a virgin media number. 

Thanks Natasha

Re: Phone scam

I very much doubt it was legit, seen thousands of pop ups with similar adverts, that turn out want to fill in surveys and sign up to mass amounts of spam email

I'm a Very Insightful Person, I'm here to share knowledge, I don't work for Virgin Media. Learn more

Re: Phone scam

I hope the ‘process’ didn’t involve entering your Virginmedia details like username & password &/or credit card/bank account details. If so I would change these immediately.
