Possible scam number

Could somebody please confirm if

0800 1836xxx is actually the Virgin sales team number?

If it's not, then someone knows a lot more than they should about customers that have recently looked at virgin media deals.



[MOD EDIT: number edited in case it's an innocent number being spoofed]

I took the next call that came.

They seemed legit', didn't try for any personal info that they didn't already have, or try to sell of anything.

The downside for virgin is that if you do a number search on google there are many complaints because of the message given if you call back.

Thank you for your reply Jamie1970.

Can you please expand on what was advised on the call as we would want to make sure this was genuine? 




Hi Nat

The guy I spoke to only asked which package I was looking at.

When I told him that it was just the essentials pack and that BT were offering double the data for £2:50 more, he told me that he couldn't match that and politely ended the call.

Hi @Jamie1970 thanks for your reply here - sorry we were unable to match this for you on the call.

Our moderators have obscured some of the digits of the number you've provided for security, but I do believe based on what you've said and the numbers I can see here that this is genuine here.

If you need any further help, please don't hesitate to let me know!
Many thanks
