    Fed Up Phone Owner reported Virgin Media with the number ‎+448001836408 as Harassment calls

    5/2/18 4:42 PM

    Said they were from Virgin - but soon got annoyed when I asked them to prove it (i.e. i asked them to confirm the last amount I paid them lol). Then they hung up. SCAMMER! Just like the rest of these scammers, they can use any number to appear as their own. Wish their own country (India) would round them all up and jail them. Such a waste of my time and brain cells to deal with these scum.

    Scammers. This number 08001836408 keeps calling me claiming to be Virgin Media but it's always a foreigner and they want me to tell them my details (address etc) saying it's to confirm who I am lol. If it was genuinely Virgin they would not be asking for any details as they would already have those details. Blatant scammers so beware, never ever give your details to ANYONE over the phone, no matter how trivial those details may seem or what reason the caller gives for wanting them.

    Retaliate reported Virgin Media with the number ‎+448001836408 as Harassment calls

    12/9/20 5:15 PM

    Indian speaker wanting me to upgrade my Virgin Router, persistent from Virgin. I asked when will the new Router and Technician appointment be booked?. I allowed him access to my PC as"Virgin Team Helper" He had his/my pointer going everywhere on screen. First he said after 20mins, Virgin would give me a refund as Router was old and I had been paying for better service. Refund was £453.48 and that I must confirm this payment with him by opening my Bank account. IMMEDIATELY "I SMELT A RAT!!" Closed my PC down, deleting much of what the RAT needed needed me to do. Trust NO ONE!

    Poor English speaker wanted to upgrade my package with all the bells and whistle and send me a new upgrade box. When she asked for my address, I said you must have that!!!! Then she said just verify your address!!!I said why? I then terminated the call. Virgin media have given an unknown entity my private home number, I'm not impressed!!! The number that called me was 08001836408, be suspicious of anyone you don't know personally. VM have all my details and know my preferences for communication and it's not via my home phone. Stay safe everyone.

    Haha, well done. Reminded me years ago when virgin sold my number when I was running a business from home. Me and my wife had a competition to see who could keep them on the line the longest. I won with 21 minutes. Loved wasting their time. I’m storing number as “let’s waste time” and ready to waste time again instead of blocking like other numbers I have blocked.

    Pseudonymity reported Virgin Media with the number ‎08001836408 as Aggressive advertising

    6/10/20 12:21 PM

    The call came off as your typical Indian scam centre. Tells you they are from a Big company, asks you your name (not on record?)tries to sell you something, and get very agitated when you start asking questions.

    I thought this must have been a fake Virgin Media. However, when doing a reverse lookup on the number, it looks to be a number operated by Virgin Media and is allocated to "VIRGIN SALES"

    Just wow... I mean, are Virgin actually giving customer numbers to Indian scam centres to up sell? Have marketing got a bit loopy from being in lockdown? Just... wow.

    3/10/20 10:53 AM

    I was suspicious about this caller from the minute I answered the call. I only answered because I've been getting calls from similar numbers quite frequently but never answered. This lady had a heavy Asian accent and spoke poor English. She didn't understand my responses to her questions but moved to the next question regardless. She was unprofessional. The thing that alerted me the most was when she was trying to sell me an upgrade package... She was telling me about this super maxed out package where I would receive the best of everything (unlimited land-line, unlimited everything sim card, all TV channels and 500mb broadband. After explaining the package to me she said "Sounds good, right?" to which I replied "Yeah, very good" And she then said "OK, I let me just process this package for you" I then knew that this wasn't right and returned with "Hold on! You haven't even told me the cost, and I don't remember telling you Yes or No to the package! So why are you processing it? She then said..." Yes, I will get you a price for this package now"
    At that point the phone stayed silent for several minutes so I hung up. That's when I googled the number and it brought me here.
    It also became clear that the next question she would've asked would've been to verify my personal information but I think she realised I was on to her. BEWARE people! Never give them your personal info before they've verified to you who they are.

    harassing cold calling calls from virgin media trying to optimise your package, ie try to get more money out of you, generally the caller speaks poor English and so you tend to spend most of the conversation asking each other to repeat what was just said. really virgin if I want something I will ask
