    This number is a telemarketing company that claims to be Virgin Media. They had a staggering amount of detail about me and my account. They knew my name, address, my Virgin package and they knew exactly how long i had been with Virgin.
    I called Virgin immediately, and they told me that this is a telemarketing company and they have no affiliation with this company whatsoever. HANG UPTHE CALL RIGHT AWAY!!!

    Claimed to be from Virgin and wanting to know the first line of my address. I gave them that but then they wanted to confirm my bank details, I immediately told them where to go and hung up. Please avoid these curry making scammers.

    I received the same scenario call, but they had my name and email address, but not home address, apparently. They wanted to offer me a discount to renew my contract. I refused and went through the correct Virgin account.
