Fake leaflet?

Hi all - I received a leaflet today saying broadband is now available in my area. (Virgin Media have been doing work around here over the last few months). I replied to the 'Register your interest' section with the info it asks for.

Afterwards (I should have done it first) I went on the website to check if it was actually available in my area and it says it isn't.

So my question is; is this leaflet a fake one sent out by scammers?

I've tried to phone Virgin Media but couldn't get through. I also used the WhatsApp channel but the person tried selling me some other stuff and didn't answer my question. I wondered if someone on here has some knowledge of this?

Thanks

Wilf

Looks OK to me but don't share bank details unless via the official website or sales line. 

I'm not a Very Insightful Person (just a little bit, sometimes). I don't work for Virgin Media (but then nor do any of the offshore customer service agents).

Hi thanks for the reply. Yes, the leaflet looks genuine and it wouldn't really give me any reason for pause except the website doesn't match. It could just be a lack of keeping everything up to date (different departments etc). It would just be good to get confirmation from someone at the company. A lot of scam artists are relatively easy to spot but some are very sophisticated. TBH, if they were scammers, I'm sure they would have called me back by now lol..!

Thanks again
