illegal activity on account!?!?!

Hi All

Help please....

 

Just received a phone call on my landline stating to be from Virgin, it was a recorded message saying illegal activity had been discovered on my account and I would need to contact Virgin immediately or my account would be closed, it gave me several options to choose....press 1 for something …...press 2 for something else.....

I think its a scam, obviously didn't press for any of the options, just wondering if anyone has experienced this?

I have tried to call Virgin but lines are busy.

 

Thanks

Take a browse through this forum and 'Home Phone' and you will find this is mentioned almost daily. It is a scam call as per your suspicions.

Hi

 

Definitely a scam that is quite common at the moment, I have had this 3 times over the weekend. Just hang up when you receive this type of call as you have done

If you do press 1, not only will it connect you to the scammers, but also confirm they have reached an active number and the number of calls you get would likely increase
