Virgin Media Update or Security Alert Phishing Email Scams

Would you share this article with others to help inform them?

The Virgin Media email messages below are all phishing scams or fakes, and you should not respond to them with your personal information or follow the instructions in them. These email messages were not sent by Virgin Media, but my scammers, who every month send out hundreds of these email messages to trick their victims into stealing their usernames, passwords and personal information.

Never click on a link in an email message to sign or log into your online accounts.instead, go directly to the website, by typing the website address in your web browser address bar or use popular search engines to find the website.

This will prevent you from going to a fake or phishing website, which will steal your username and password once you attempt to sign-in or login.

    I was contacted by someone who had an Eastern accent - told I was in debt and needed to pay up to date. I rang off and questioned Virgin about this. No debt. Where are they getting our phone numbers from? What is Virgin doing to protect our data?

    I received this email yesterday allegedly from my ex husband. I opened the attachment which appears to be about making money. I tried to send an email back but it wasn't his e mail address.

    I have since confirmed it wasn't sent from him. Can you advise if I put myself at risk by opening the link?

    Thank you

    This is the e mail and link
    Good afternoon Anne

      Just visting the link will not put your computer or yourself at risk. But, you put yourself at risk if you visit the link, download and install malicious apps or software, or submit your personal or financial information on the website that you are taken to.
