Suspicious calls about a virus

Had a call today one from 01642 277 232 and was asked whether i had had internet problems and further questions and was told there were virus issues -  to solve the issue, I was asked to type vm71.webly....into my browser to enable them to connect to my laptop and then the router.....this did not feel right and the caller was not able to prove they were from Virgin so the call ended. I have googled the number and nothing came up. i had a silent call earlier in the day from a similar number 01642 275837 and have in general been receiving many hoax calls.

Anyone else experience this?
