Suspicious text message from +44 7860 064711

Hi

Just received a text from +44 7860 064711 as below...

"Hi! It's Virgin Media. Great news! We can now install your services on 15th or 16th November, AM or PM. Text YES to reschedule or NO to keep your current date."

On the basis that I have been with Virgin for several years and haven't requested any new 'services' I'm guessing that this is a scam?

Can anyone confirm? Many thanks

Not a very clever scam, if it is a scam.

Possibly, a real message to a customer with an error in the documented mobile number?
