Unable to forward scam text to 7726

I received scam text and tried to forward to 7726 but said unable to send . Haven’t had this problem with previous provider EE . Is this specific to virgin mobile ?

Re: Unable to forward scam text to 7726

It was just showing progress bar and then would time out saying unable to send. It gave option to ta exclamation and try again but repeatedly failing. There was an issue with my phone number changing on my account and also I took my spending cap outside my plan from £0 to £3 not sure if this made a difference but randomly must have automatically sent few days later  as had response saying received.

Re: Unable to forward scam text to 7726

I am not a Virgin customer but find it impossible to contact virgin to report phishing texts. I need to report a virgin mobile number which is sending phishing texts, I'd like to have Virgin block the user report them to the Police

Anyone have a link or a number where I can report this abuse?

The number is almost certainly not on Virgin. These people use software to spoof what are official numbers. That's why using the shortcode number to report helps as it is sometimes possible to trace the real number.

If it is one number block it
