Text sent about payments

Received a text to my phone: "Virgin:We've been unable to process your latest bill for this month, To avoid fees, please update your information via: [REMOVED] "

From +447539700820

Anyone shed light on this?  Don't tell me it's genuine!

It's a scam - see this similar thread:

I guessed that it was a scam. Does VM know about this?  Haven't had any warnings.

Re: Text sent about payments

They have been going around for months now, so guess Virgin know about them, plus posts in this forum are building up.

If you still have the text, forward it to 7726 to report it to Virgin.
