Have a look at the number of views, it shows how many people are getting these calls. Virgin know about this scam to get existing members to pay double what new members could get the deal for! Same as the AA etc. get new quoted annually and shop around. You're being conned for being loyal to the company!
What they need to do is stop calling and send an email.
I had been away for a few days abroad and all throughout the week days I got calls from them, I have an idea it may have been about signing up to a new package, which they failed to tell me I needed to sign an online contract which i signed a few weeks late.
however if they just send me an email instead of pestering me constantly on the phone and not leaving any messages or dead messages where they do not speak and wasting my time calling my voice mail.
a simple email to say
Hey, We are Virgin Media have attempted to contact you several times via phone. We are contacting you regarding xxxxxxxxxxxx, please contact us on 0800xxxxxxxx or if you are not interested please reply and we will remove you from our dialling lists.
Certainly Virgin as the first time they called I let her go through her sales talk, then said I was at work and couldn't talk. Now receiving daily calls and soon, very soon, one caller is going to get a mouth full !! When you can get the deal for half of what she was quoting, shows it's time to move to Sky. Not putting up with unscrupulous companies.
Just answered this call for the millionth time, they say you are in good standing yada yada, then say you can upgrade to which I say I dont need to or want to yet. Which they completely ignore and start saying, you can have free whatsapp and some other app, which I say I dont want. Then they try offer me another sim card, and I'm just like stop please I dont want anything from you. Then I say I've asked you for these calls to stop many times, as I dont want or need them, they go ok have a good day, bye?!!!
I've NO replied to the text they send saying we will contact you soon. Yet they still do..
Also rang 789 asking for all marketing calls to stop. No cigar there either it seems
Virgin Mobile Marketing are a real pain. I have had a large number of calls from them on this number. Yesterday I had a call and today 2 calls, I have told them this is verging on harassment, that I will leave Virgin if I get any more such calls and they still continue to call. They do not seem to understand that if I want any different service I will call them and I can also do a search on line if I want to find anything else that I might want.
The call blocking works for a while but then they change the number they use.
Why should I want to talk to someone not from the UK with a lot of people talking in the background, which makes it almost impossible to understand what is being said?
Virgin Media services are very good but the marketing calls are very very very bad. Please stop driving people away.
