SPAM EMAIL FROM THE VIRGIN TEAM

I have received an email today from the Virgin Team telling me my latest virgin media bill cannot be processed and then asking me to click on a link. Is this a legit email?

I got it too, I checked the header as it appeared to be sent from VirginMedia and the email address was: webteam.virgin.media.wu53191zhodkxel18903@kalize.fr

No I didn't click on the link, thought it was suspect.

Thanks for your confirmation Tony Smiley Happy

Re: SPAM EMAIL FROM THE VIRGIN TEAM

I got the same today. Moderately convincing and I had just had notice of my next bill so it fitted. The 'n0-reply' email address was a clue that it was different. Glad I checked it out.

Re: SPAM EMAIL FROM THE VIRGIN TEAM

more than likely they would be hoping you filled in the details, but worth deleting all cookies, temp internet files, and reset your virginmedia password
