If you have already clicked on the link in the fake email message and have entered your information on the fake or phishing Virgin Media website, please try changing your Virgin Media password and contacting them. Also contact your bank if you have entered your credit card information on the fake and phishing website. Let your bank know that you have unknowingly entered your credit card information on a phishing website.
