Hey @Caroline13,

 

I can confirm that this is a phishing site and has been blocked by our security team.

Re: Is this a scam

Hey again @Caroline13,

 

Please could you block the two numbers that are claiming to be from Virgin as they are definitely not our numbers. 

 

Regards

Re: Is this a scam

Like you care. I’ve had 8 since July 6 supposedly from Virgin. They all are trying to achieve the same aim.

Re: Is this a scam

There 3 supposedly from VM and the last one in my VM feed . The number is different everytime. Blocking will achieve nothing.

Re: Is this a scam

@Caroline13 Sorry you are upset but as these are incoming text messages there is nothing they can do, there is no way to detect them on the SMS system.

We all suffer with them, you are not special.

Re: Is this a scam

Never said I was . It’s new to me since July the fist 5 supposedly from VM re service . The other two checked doctors web site and the other crossed my fingers . But getting clarification from VM was my initial frustration 789 disappeared about June? July ? August? The last one in my VM feed concerned me.. didn’t know that was possible. Basically I’m going to ignore all texts of this kind and these days wouldn’t even consider clinking on a link that VM say is bona fide because the first text I responded to was VERY CONVINCING had to get new card etc after phoning bank fraud line. But like you say it’s ‘out there’ so LETS LEAVE IT AT THAT! But 789 - no point of contact is a mistake. And ps The ‘badges’ on this site are ridiculous!
