Re: Scam text ?

Are you PAYG? Have you made a chargeable call or sent a chargeable text in the last three months?

3.8 Keep talking!: You need to use our Services at least once within any 90 day period either by making a chargeable call or sending a text message. If you don’t we may suspend your access to the Services and cancel this Agreement. If we cancel this Agreement, you may lose your phone number and any unused Top Up credit on your account (see Clause 10.3). We don’t really want to lose you as a customer so please ensure you keep talking or texting!

3.5 No refund: If you don’t use all of the credit in any Top Up that you purchase, or such Top Up expires (if applicable) then we will not give you a refund for it. If this Agreement is cancelled (unless you cancel in accordance with Clause 5.4) then you will also lose any credit you have on your account and we will not refund it to you

Re: Scam text ?

I saw a few of these texts last night (different numbers used for each), and a subsequent web search revealed that even people that have never been Virgin Mobile customers got them.

So yes, a scam in my opinion. A phishing one to get you to click the link.
