SMS Alert - Scam

I have received a text message with this message:

We have faiIed to pre authorise your monthIy payment. Please update your biIIing detaiIs using the foIIowing form: https://virgin.media-ecare.com

Just as I signed in to our Virgin Media account to confirm my details I remembered that my mobile number was not registered on our Virgin Media account only my husband's details!!  And the website looked a bit dodgy!

Can't help but to think it is a scam!!  I might be a bit paranoid, but have this happened to anyone else today?

Thought so!  Thanks for the confirmation Tony.   A lot of "skelms" (crooks) out there!

Re: SMS Alert - Scam

Same message received here - the give-away is virgin.media - every other text I have doesn't have the dot
