Phone bill charge scam?

I have just recently received a text telling me I have gone over my credit limit on my mobile phone account. I phoned Virgin Mobile to query and was told that "I made a call to 09040127155 on 29th December that cost £62.25!!!!" I can categorically say that my phone was in my possession all day and at no time did I make this call. The worrying thing is that it appears on my call log?? I have checked with Info@callchecker.co.uk for this number and all suggestions are that it tracks back to China somewhere? This is a scam and I refuse to pay it. Can anyone else comment on similar problems please? Thanks

Can Virgin Mobile comment pleae? Before I take this further

Re: Phone bill charge scam?

That's a UK Premium rate number not Chinese which would prefix +86

As far as I can trace it is an online Voting Service but I may be wrong.
