Mobile phone fraud - help please

Hi 

I'm looking for help to seek a resolution to a mobile phone fraud.

On Tuesday 22nd June I received by courier x2 Virgin Money mobile phones.  I did not order these and my suspicions were confirmed after a different courier tried to collect them 45 minutes after they were delivered.  I have read about this type of fraud and the main advice was to not hand over the packages.  They are still in my possession.

I called Virgin Mobile support and was told to wait 48hrs for a call but have read these matters can continue for days and weeks.

I was wondering if you can help progress this matter ?  I have all the relevant details.

 

Many thanks

 

Andrew

With me it’s been years now, one phone returned, second waiting to be. The main problem is this effects my credit score & My mortgage payments may get effected. They need to close these cases. It will impact on any kind of loan/credit  you take in the future.
