Scam call purporting to be Virgin from 01676948491 today 24th August 12.25pm

I received a call at 12.25pm today allegedly from Virgin from 01676948491 saying that my connection had been accessed and my computer info at risk of being stolen. The tel number seems genuine from Meriden area. I eventually asked how I could check it was a genuine call and he hung up.

As I suspected I put this number into a provider search to see who owns it. The answer is. Nobody. It does not exist. The number is spoofed & the call is from a scammer. Don’t worry about it, we are all getting them. I keep getting ones claiming to be BT telling me I will be cut off. I have no BT services & Virgin don’t use their network so there is nothing to cut off.
