Joining in

i had my email hacked on Saturday 4th March. It was abusive and threatening demanding money.

It would not let me send it to virgin. I phoned and the lady who answered was useless. She did not know what tod do. Eventually after over 20mins we were cut off. I called again and a man eventually said all he could do was make a not and some would call in 2 days. No call received. Call virgin Tuesday and told it would be passed to a manager and I would be contacted in 3 to 5 working days. It is now Thursday 16th March and nothing from Virgin.

I am 79 years and would like help.

My main concern was the the email contained my password which is only used to conect to my virgin email. this was the first thing I changed. I got emails from Uber with a code to join. also from Linkedin. Whoever it is is desperate to log onto my Facebook account. 

Luckily I am no longer tied to Virgin Media so I can change my whole packet to another tv etc provider who i hope have consideration to its customers. I have been with the company it took over from.

You at least you could have phoned as promised. I wanted to know how they got my password as it is only used on my ntl email
