Text message scam?

I’ve received text messages saying 

VirginMedia: Your account is at risk, to avoid service restrictions and account termination please confirm your details via: http://my-virgin-media-account.org/ from +44 7798 562265

its looks like a legit website but it asked to confirm login which I did but then asks me for bank details which seemed suspect to me so I’ve been trying to find info on if this is a scam or genuine 

thanks

Re: Text message scam?

It's an obvious scam. The URL is clearly not a VM genuine address. The UK URLs for VM are all .com addresses. I hope you haven't given personal details away.

If you entered your login email and password on that site, it would be wise to log into your mobile online account and change your password swiftly 😉
