Telephone Numbers

I have received a telephone call from 01603 427671 claiming to be from virginmedia stating I'd got a problem with my broadband speed. Is this a virginmedia number.

Re: Telephone Numbers

No it is a scam/phishing attempt.  The displayed number is likely to be made up or cloned.

Re: Telephone Numbers

It's pretending to be from Norwich.  Stay vigilant and you'll be OK.  Other numbers are mostly "obscure places" in Scotland.  An internet search on these numbers will usually yield a result confirming that they are scam/dangerous.  Must be a right pain if they "borrow" your number.
