Possible scam

Hi, just had a call from an Asian lady claiming to be form Virgin Media stating that I was having problems with my broadband. When I asked exactly what problems I was supposed to be having, she got very flustered and hung up. The number she called from to my landline was 01332412524 in Dartford. Is this a genuine call from Virgin Media with a new member of staff or is it dodgy as I suspect?
