Thanks for posting this however that phishing email had already been posted here yesterday by the moderators. See email 2 here https://community.virginmedia.com/t5/Security-matters/Latest-Phishing-News-2 here2-06-2021/m-p/47545... 

The reason that the VM phishing address rejected it was because by the time you forwarded it the email had already been flagged by VM's security filter as being fraudulent.

Thank you Lee, hope I did n't leave myself exposed with the link?? by copying and pasting the email...? anyway I didn't know what else to do so sorry if it was the wrong place to put it. It's terrible for those who are vulnerable and may click the links...
regards 🙂

Hi @Angrybirdme,

 

No worries, our moderators have been able to edit in good time. 

I agree with you too and it's so infuriating that people out there are sending such scams. 

Thanks again for getting in touch.

 

Kind regards,
