Scam Virginmedia Technical phone call

Received a call today from an individual with an Indian accent claiming to be Virginmedia Technical Team. They rang my Virginmedia landline and had my correct name.

Have my Virginmedia details been sold on by a Virginmedia insider?

Re: Scam Virginmedia Technical phone call

Your call may just be one of many thousands of scam calls doing the rounds at the moment. Your name and number may have been obtained in any number of ways from the public domain or previous data breaches. However, given your other post below

you should consider the possibility that some of your personal/identity information may have been compromised and you should follow the suggestions in the links provided on that thread on preventing identity theft and future fraud by criminals using your details.
