router security

I have this morning been called from Allegedly by Virgin Technical Support claiming my router has been hacked and is being used for illegal purposes, they asked for access to either a laptop or PC on my network, I obviously refused and promptly disconnected, has this been a one of or has this been seen around the community

Re: router security

Hundreds of posts about this on the Community. Known scam. You did the right thing. To emphasise again VM would never phone you about this kind of issue.
