Scam

I received a phone call on my virgin land line number telling me that I had to ring them as they were disconnecting my broadband and needed a new modem. On ringing the number that rang they wanted me to connect my laptop and phone to WiFi. At that point I put the phone down. Is this a scam

@Tyfish 

You are correct, 100% a scam.

There are frequent posts here regarding similar incidents.  See this post for a recent VM staff response on the subject:

Re: Scam

Out of curiosity what did the number you called start with, for example 070 or  09?
