Texts claiming to be from Virgin

I am receiving messages daily claiming to be from Virgin Media stating they cannot verift my payment details:

These are the numbers: 

07932431210 directing me to a fake website 'virgin-updatepayment.com'

07983832013 directing me to a fake website 'virgin-billing-support-help.com'

The others are showing up as 'virgin media' and directing me to fake websites 'myvirgin.monthly-status.com and 'virgin.media-monthly.com'

I know my bill has been paid as I have received my bill, I also received a confirmation from Virgin Media saying that my allowances have been refreshed before I then started recieving fake messages from them so just wondering if someone has hacked into the system? or if this is happening to anyone else?

No. It has happened to a lot and not just on Virgin 

Forward them to 7726

Thank you, I have tried forwarding them and they are not being delivered.

Is that number still active?

Working for me. But I've also got the ability to report as spam from Messages app.

I'm on Vodafone but 7726 is run by all networks
