Is this a scam?

I've just received this SMS message apparently from Virgin Media. It looked like a scam so I haven't responded. Is it a scam? If so, how have they got my mobile number from Virgin?

"We are unable to process your bill payment due to invalid info. Please update account to avoid service disruption www..is.gd/virgin_sec [edited]"

Yes. It is 100% a scam SMS. Don't click on any of its links.

If you still have it, forward it to 7726 and then delete it.

Re: Is this a scam?

Yes it's a scam. One look at the link shows it's not Virgin

Phone numbers are allocated to certain networks so they can guess who you are with. Of course numbers move but they only have to fool one in a thousand to make it worthwhile

I'm a Very Insightful Person, I'm here to share knowledge, I don't work for Virgin Media. Learn more
