To stop receiving direct calls, add the annoying number to your contacts. I call them Block1, Block2 etc... You can then use options for each number to direct them to Voicemail so that your phone is not ringing every time. You can clear out the Voicemails whenever you feel like it. I currently have a couple of so called Virgin numbers that don't bother me any more. Scam suspicion
The above phone number is costly calling me please block this number because I don’t know the number Many thanks Unknow
This Number ID - XT - claiming to be from Virgin Media. Most worryingly they had access to very recent changes to my account and were wanting to secure the possibility of reducing my monthly costs even further. The alarming thing is that my mobile is not a virgin Media number however is my alternative contact number,therefore I can only suspect that the Virgin Media employees located in India are passing on customer account data and issuing details out to be scammed.
This started a couple of days ago and is coupled with +447458333222. In looking for information on the voicemail notification, I inadvertently opened the voicemail and got a far-east recorded voice, which may have made things worse. Blocking the number resulted in no more calls but I get a fresh voicemail every time I switch on the phone. Virgin Mobile have no answer other than permanently disabling voicemail or changing the number, both of which would be inconvenient.
Definitely a scam, saying they’re from virgin and asking me where I live, not even trying to act legit.
Please STOP. I never asked for this and don’t want to be called at least twice a day. Someone somewhere must be desperate for a job, but I am not desperate to talk to them. They should be jailed along with the other nuisance callers......
I am 79 years old and sick of this number ringing me twice a day every day I do not answer cos I do not have that number in my phone, my grandaughter was here today when it rang she blocked it for me as I did not know how to block numbers, hope that's it
Receiving a call nearly every day from this number. I see here it's a scam number so have blocked it. They still call even without me picking up the call. A real nuisance!!
This number calls my mobile 3times a day claiming to be Virgin Media. Very annoying!
i am profoundly deaf they ring me up twice a day i have blocked them but got blank voicemails when it gonna stop ?? it so annoying
08001836403 the caller knew my name and said she was calling from virgin media but I knew it was not from them, she wanted to know details of my account. obviously a phishing fraud.
It's has been calling and calling but I have refused to pick it up. Very nuisance and annoying.
Scammers from overseas, usually an African country such as Nigeria, Ignore them, dangerous.
I answered a phone call from this number. They said it was virgin. Not sure weather it is a scam. They only said they where sending me a faster internet box in two weeks time and asked me confirm my address which I never told them what it was ,they told me .
Foreign lady called speaking in broken English asked me to confirm my name and address when I asked her what she wanted she claimed she was from virgin media regarding saving me some money. When I said I didn’t want any upgrade as they had just put price up by 3.50 a month she hung up on me!!!!!!
This numbers calls about 4 times a day. Spoke to Virgin media who confirmed it was NOT virgin Media ringing and was a spam call
Have blocked them but they call every day … They will never get through to me.
This may be a genuine Virgin phone number but scammers have spoofed genuine business numbers so be careful. Safety rules are: NEVER sign up to anything in response to a cold call: NEVER give away any information to a cold caller. If the call sounds interesting call them back on the number provided on your paperwork or web site but only after you ensure that your phone line has cleared. Stay safe folks.
Keep calling. Called four times in two days. I answered the last call but no one there. Have now blocked it.
This is Virgin media and whoever's in charge of these pests needs locking up. Falsely sold me some bogus service package after I told them I don't want to pay any more, I had to make a complaint and force them to reverse the changes to my account. I told them if they want to sell me something they have my VM email but these clowns still keep going, they want to be careful or I'll be going. These call centre parasites are ruining my experience. Block the number and they still keep trying.
Called several times today claiming to be virgin media. Asking for personal details so hung up
It,s Virgin media was offered sky movies for half price for 6 months so i took it got movie channels 5 minutes later so it is not a scam caller
This number is continuously spamming my phone and from researching, it seems to be targeting Virgin Media phonelines as it originates from a Virgin media cable line itself. I would block this number as it is not an official VM number
This number has called my mobile 4 times 9th-15th July. Samsung s/w rejected calls as potential fraud. Possibly Virgin as I'm on one of their SIM-only deals, and there have been a couple of texts recently trying to get me to upgrade my contract.
Claimed to be virgin media. Said I wasn't interested. Calls now blocked but have phoned 7 times in last 2 days
0800 183 6403. I am fed up with this number calling me, so this afternoon I answered. This foreign woman said she was from vergin media and how was I today.Let her waffle on, then she asked me for my adress and postcode. Told her if she was from virgin media then they would have my address and postcode. I then proceeded to tell her that I knew she was scamming, and to stop phoning me. I can't block the number on my mobile, as it blocks all phone numbers. Also if this was truly virgin media, why don't they phone me on my landline.
This number called me today on my mobile phone. Came up as suspected fraud so have blocked the number.
Don't answer 0800 numbers but was annoyed that they were ringing on my mobile number (not a Virgin phone) A choice of "annoying" would be useful as it wasn't harassing.
Just spent 15 min getting Virgin mobile to check this number out. They confirm it’s their sales team on promotions selling you upgrades. Call virgin and check for yourself. In future anyone that claims they are from a company that I use I will verify the numbers correct with the company itself.
Called today but I don't usually answer unknown numbers. Having read other comments, I will now block this number.
This IS a Virgin marketing number. They tried to upgrade my phone but my credit was refused (no surprise there!) so they upgraded my package instead. The amount of dumb paranoia in the other messages on here is ridiculous.
Couldn’t make out what was being said but in view of comments now blocked . Sounded like usual scam rubbish.
This is NOT Virgin Media but a scam to obtain your personal details including bank details - please do not give any information away and hang up. Virgin Media are aware of this.
they have called 4 times a day. claimed to be VM. number blocked. blocked calls now into double figures. My advice block as soon as number calls, don't answer.
They call EVERY SINGLE DAY, multiple times! Had enough, told the woman “you’ve called about 100 times already, I know you’re fake, bye” and hung up. Leave me alone!!!!
They are not from virgin media which they claim to be. I have been receiving these nuisance calls from this telephone number 4 times a day every day. I decided enough was enough and rang virgin media and they confirmed to me that this was not them calling me and gave me a number to call and a website to get nuisance callers blocked etc. Do not give these callers any details in fact do not even answer there calls and block them asap as they are scamming people they are not from virgin media. Hope this was helpful.
2 calls in 2 days claiming to be Virgin Media. Didn't believe a word of it. Lots of background noise from an overseas call centre. Hung up and blocked.
I was twice called today on this number, and once on 08004089340. Unable to block incoming calls on my old reliable Nokia, so I just let it ring for 3 times before the call stops of its own accord. Bl**dy nuisance, but that's all it is.
Double checked with Virgin Media afterwards and this was their response: i.imgur.com/zjgtGzE.jpg
Called me claiming to be Virgin Media and that there were "exclusive deals" only for "selected customers". Address me by name, which seemed legitimate but then asked for my post code for confirmation that I was who I said I was, despite them calling me. At this point, I refused to give her my details, told her that I really wasn't interested and hung up.
Indian call centre guy and very hard to hear or understand with all of the noise and shouting in the background. Introduced himself as Virgin Media and asked for my Virgin Media login details. I refused. He then got really uppity and began shouting insults of all sorts which with his really strong Indian accent actually sounded quite funny. Just block the number - maybe it's Virgin Media competition trying to upset users. Either way they must think the people who answer are complete Muppets asking for all of their confidential information. Worth recording the conversation just in case they start to insult you as with the accents they have it sounds like its from a comedy show and worth uploading to YouTube or others.
Has rang a few times over the past three weeks, sometimes on this number (08001836403, sometimes on 08004089340). After I answered and hang up as soon as the man asked if it was me and then began what seemed could be a long conversation, it has been ringing twice a day. If it is really Virgin Media, they have my e-mail, and have communicated with me by email before. So suspicious, and have blocked these numbers.
Virgin Media trying to get me to take out a new mobile contract - they have called me 3 times, once a day, since I told them I wasn't interested. Indian/Asian lady each time; now blocking their calls
Scammers, every time I block the number they call on another. Must admit though sometimes I ask them to hold on while I get the person they asked for, guess what, they've gone when I go back after a good long wait. Another one I have done is blow a whistle into the phone.
I phoned VM myself after the call from this number, gave them the number and asked if it was them, they said it is, it's their upgrade department.
Called today on my number. Asked for my husband. Told them they had the wrong number. He apologised and hung up.
had call from 08001836403 saying from v.m asked to speak to my farther said he was not in he said the c..t is never fu.. ing in waste of my time said you do not have to swear at me you IDIOTphone me pratt put phone down on me pity I love pissing these people off DANGEROUS
I have received 8 calls from this number today. I thought I had blocked them last week. They say they are from Virgin and want to upgrade broadband. Blocked!
Called 5 mins ago asked me my address I said you should already know it. Started to talk then hung up. Strange
Called today, a man with an Asian accent told me he was from Virgin Media and wanted to make sure I was getting the best deal - I told him that he wasn't from Virgin Media- he insisted he was from Virgin Media and wanted to know why I thought he wasn't. I told him that I worked for Virgin Media (untrue) and he immediately hung up. Scammers.
Called me about 20 times over the past week, I’ve previously blocked the number and get left voicemails with bad connection saying “hello, it’s virgin?”. Called virgin, they have no record of calling me. Smells a bit scammy...
Someone saying the were from VM but asked for my address and some characters from my account password. I said you should have my address from the number you rang and I am not giving my password out. She stumbled on her words and put me on hold. Hung up and blocked!!
Number has been calling a couple of times per day over the last week or so on my mobile . Haven't answered once and wont now I have read these comments. Intrusive , unwanted and disturbing vampires
Scammer! she called me today, trying to get my details, when I said you must have them in front of you she was really nasty! Must be a scam, they wanted to offer me a discount, although I am still in contract. Sadly they have the software to be able to pretend they are calling from a virgin number.
BLOCK THIS NUMBER! She claimed to be Virgin Media, I politely let her know that I am not interested to switch but the arrogance and rudeness is just unbelievable and even very disturbing. I do not wish to be threaten with such unacceptable manner.
Called today, he told me he was selling a dog, I said I didn't want a dog, he said you need a dog, I said I no need a dog, he said you do need a dog, now I have a dog.
Called today saying they were virgin media offered me cheap deal on sports channels i hung up and now will block after reading all these comments.... Obviously scammers
Called saying they would give a free upgrade TIVO box. Then asked for details. Luckily I did not give any!
they say that they are Virgin Media . ,but suspect it is a scam VM has not called me today,and if they do, use landline,not mobile......can i block this call?
called 3 times today, silence at the other end. Spam, goes straight to answerphone. No intention of calling back!!!
Two calls at work today. First, purporting to be from Virgin Media Rewards, asked me for personal details but unable to provide anything first to verify authenticity of call. Second silent.
Keep phoning me regarding best deals etc etc.. Not interested in the fact that the Account is in my Husband's name not mine. I was under the impression that companies can only discuss accounts with the named holder.
Rang me 3 times today, I didn't answer, the last time it then sent a text saying it's from O2 and to disable dial 901 press * then option 4 and 5 ... I'm not stupid, number blocked
total nuisance....other sites say is defiitely pushing for virgin media customers to upgrade....they just keep on and on calling
As Per, but I am expecting a call from them about my tarrif, but with all the negative feedback on this I will block as well, but I wonder if these are from 3rd party sales, as opposed to Virgin's proper sales team, it may explain the reports here ?
08001836403 Claimed to be from Virgin mobile. Knew many details of my phone - type etc; Guy on the phone had dreadful command of English language. Very arrogant, rude. I thought Virgin mobile were above this! Checked with Virgin and it is their sales team but the number has now been blocked. Still got doubts.
A strong Indian accented caller called me today yet again saying he was from Virginmedia but called on my BT phone! Surely Virginmedia would call on my VM phone!
Called my mobile once yesterday and twice today. Never answered it and just looked on here to find out who it was and have now put it on my automatic reject list. Let's hope it works.
Said she was from Virgin Media to talk about "broadband optimization". Asked for personal details to confirm who I was! I said no, you phoned me and my bb is fine. She said goodbye.
0800 183 6403 they ARE from Virgin Media - they told me which phone I had on contract so could not be fake -took ages to run thru new contract - were very prepared to hang up and knew details they could only know if they were the real mccoy
Called me tonight at 20:25, thought it was strange, answered and they hung up immediately, so I blocked then googled the number, glad I did, obviously scammers.
Just had a call from this number today. Incidentally I have had a previous text from VM saying that someone will contact me in the near future to see/confirm if I am getting the best possible deal yaddayadda. I never answered the call and sent a message back saying that the number has been marked as spam and I won't be answering future calls from that number. Useful tool that is! :)
Glad I read these messages as thought it strange for Virgin Media to call my mobile which is not with their package accounts. Phoned me last week, knew my name and asked for my details, postcode and 1st line of my address. I pointed out to the foreign lady that they rang me and should know my details to which she was stumped, she tried again to try and confirm it was me and I explained that she rang my mobile no. which is not on my virgin media account, told her I was not feeling well and hung up. They rang yesterday and I couldn't be bothered to answer and thought I would look up the phone number for future reference, glad I did. Thanks
08001836403 Have been receiving their calls everyday, I'm seriously pissed off. Like one of the comments, whenever I pick up they'll hang up. F sake. It's harassing seriously. Virgin media or not, just send me mails if you are serious about contacting your customers.
Had first call to day. I never answer my mobile if i don't recognise the number. Seeing the comments here is a bit of a worry!!
claimed to be from virgin media, i would think virgin didnt need this type of bad publicity !. ased for my passwords and account details..HOW did they get my TPS registered virgin number??.
Received call from them. Claim to be from virgin media. Weirdly they know virgin media account holder name but have my mobile number.
claimed to be from virgin media. giving this company a bad repetation by using there name to scam people.
So glad I never answered this number.. just getting Fed up with these scammers.. they ring everyday on my landline and mobile.. yes I'm registered with TPS. About time the government sorted this out. I wonder if parliament gets scam callers ever day..? Not
Woman called saying she was from Virgin and asked me to confirm my address. Refused, pointing out whenever Virgin have called me in the past, they have never asked for any details from me and would go straight into telling me about latest offers. Told her if she is from Virgin, email me or send mail.
I have called the real Virgin Media customer service line twice today. This number called me on both occasions some minutes afterwards, first when I answered it disconnected right after. After the first occasion I have checked the number here so on the second time I voiced my concern about the guys identity. He seemed unfazed but he was clearly not at the same place than the other guy I have spoken to on 03454541111.
Outbound loyalty team from virgin media if i want to call them i will on the official number
Claimed to be from Virgin Media and stated asking for my security details. I asked him why he was calling and he hung up immediately.
Virgin wouldn't be giving me silent calls on my mobile, they have my email address and landline, not even in my name, we already have everything in our expensive package, obviously scammers. BLOCKED.
The woman claimed to be from virgin media saying to make sure I had the best deals and wanted me to confirm my address, which I refused and told her she needs to prove who she is, then she ended the call
No-one there when phone answered.. Checked to number on landline. A recording stated "This is Virgin sales team.. We have called you today but don't worry we will call you again" or words to that effect.. Not sure what to think, is it genuine or not... However I do know I will not answer any future calls from this number just in case..Virgin can always contact via post as they have done in the past.
Said they were Virgin Media, started asked me for information, told them I wasn't interested in anything and don't give information to cold callers, might be genuine, might not be, we still get cold calls from Sky, to insure the box we haven't had for 10 years and never insured anyway, very suspicious of these people, I just put the phone down, shame these companies have allowed such calls, it probably costs them business and ruins their reputation, I no longer care if they are genuine or fake, they all get the same response, if I want anything, I'll call them
This is some general 3rd party call centre (possibly foreign) working for Virgin media and/or O2. Maybe unsolicited call, but genuine one.
Keep phoning me at least twice a day on my mobile which isn't even Virgin. I have blocked this number, I did answer it once no one on the other end so put phone down straight away.
Virgin trying to sell me something, refuse to take my number of their autodial thing ... now blocked
2 missed calls from this number on my mobile today.....phoned VM from landline 150 and they confirmed that no one had tried to phone me today from any department as it would have been recorded on my account. That's a good enough reason for me to block the number.
I rang vm and asked about this number and was told it is not on there register for numbers for vm don't give any details
This person called my company saying they were calling from Ghana (immediately alarm bells rang!) He said he had found someone's card and personal information in the trash and needed to confirm the name so that he could hand it in. I kindly told him to report it to the bank.
856-457-8208 from Vineland NJ Called me and say was calling from the Veterans society and will send me an envelope to donate money; I told him no because the veterans do not call asking for money and this was a scam call then hang up. I blocked the number in my cell
Its genuinely Virgin Media. Call it. They will verify that they called you. I declined to give my details and now I feel silly that I might have turned down a good deal. Still, their approach does raise suspicions and I suppose I can comfort myself with "better safe than sorry".
endless calls with no one there if answered...dont pick up...if i knew how to block i would ......................................
These clowns rang me 3 times yesterday, claiming to be Virgin Media. They may or may not be who they say, but I will phone Virgin Media myself if I want anything.
As others have said, a man with an Indian accent claiming to be from Virgin Media and asking for my details. I said I'm at work and asked him to put it all in an email for me so he hung up!
Said they were from Virgin Media saying they could give me a discount, got a discount from virgin media last month i told him this and he hung up hmmmm
Called many times through last week. Very poor connection. Very heavy Indian accent. After 5 attempts to pronounce my name correctly - failed and hung up. Could not be Virgin M.
I am a Virgin media customer (and as going through the normal channels does not seem to work) I have just sent an e-mail to Tom Mockridge CEO of Virgin Media asking him to clarify if this is a genuine Virgin Media number, as there seems to be some confusion on these lookup sites about this and even Virgin Media customer service seem vague. I have also insisted that if it is genuine my mobile and landline numbers be removed from any contact lists Virgin Media or their partners use. I await reply from Mr Mockridge and will update when/if I receive one.
Got a call from them - virgin have supposedly changed their numbers. worrying as judging from comments they have customer details.
Young man called saying he was calling from virgin. He had my full name. The phone line was very poor quality. He then asked me to clarify my home address. I refused and said if your calling me you already have this information, along with my email address so you can write or email me. He said but its free check to make sure your getting everything out of virgin. i said send an email. he then hung up.
Several calls each day telling me they are virgin media. I always ask them to call my landline as that is the line that vigin provide. They never call my landline. Called virgin customer service today regarding these call. Spoke to a line manager who gave me a number to call to block any further callss. Hopefully these fraud characters have no more details of mine
Called my father's mobile and said they were from Virgin. Asked for our postcode and date of birth. My dad told him that he could be anyone, it might not be Virgin. He insisted that he was from Virgin and kept on asking these questions and also asked for the security answer, which my father didn't give. He was very argumentative which you wouldn't expect from Virgin Media. Very dangerous.
Indians claiming they are from Virgin Media, but the problem is that they have my Name and Surname. Where from? When I started asking them why they are overcharging me they said "you have to contact your customer service" and I asked "so you are not my customer service?" and they escaped.
0800 183 6403 called me eight times in the last 10 days. I don't answer calls from numbers I don't recognise ever! Looks even more like a scam the longer it goes on.
3 missed called in 24 hours. Deeply suspicious, asking for personal details whilst promising to cut my costs - as if, I like Virgin Meida but no such thing as a free lunch in this industry. Blocked.
contacted virgin media by e-mail and received letter back today with legitimate 0345 phone number, spoke to very helpful British gentleman who assures me this number and 08004089340 are not virgin media but somebody has obviously got hold of virgin media records. E -mail any queries to virgin media and hope their security team can sort out, if you make them aware and you are scammed then at least you have your e-mail as proof
Getting two or three calls a day leaving voicemail from very strongly accented callers saying "Hello, hello, hello - this is virgin media". Have blocked this number based on comments - doesn't stop their voicemails though!
Virgin media used to use an Asian call cenre my guess is some customer information has been leaked to scammer. Probably a disgruntled ex employee trying to make a fast buck. BAD DO NOT GIVE ANY DETAILS TO THEM.
virgin media wanting to up grade my mobile but did get a text saying they'd call me a few day's before
Indian caller. Several calls this week, one tonight, not answering after first call, real nuiscance !
I have contacted Virgin about this number and they have told me it is a scam…do not give any of your details to them. Virgin will be passing this number over to the Police
An Indian lady who said she was from VM and wanted to talk about upgrading my phone. She knew my name(probably from apps selling info) and said she could upgrade my current phone. Do not trust her. Block the number.
Just got a call from 08001836403. A foriegn woman asking to speak to me(knew my name). I didnt confirm who i was, I asked " what is the nature of the call?". She replied, "Its about your vigin media services". I simply said "Yes", At this point the call was cut by them. I suspect she needed to confirm that i was a virgin customer. Iam guessing that i will be targeted for scam calls and emails connected to virgin. Do not answer this number, or if you do, do not admit to being a virgin customer.
COMPLETE FRAUD!!!! Always ignored, as I dont pick up unknown numbers.I wait for voicemail. Googled number, some said fake virgin, some said real. I had to phone real virgin this afternoon, to sort out my mobile package. Got a call at 7.40 this evening from the unknown number..so I tested!.. Hello ..can I speak to %^_€£... speaking.. Its ^/&€ from virgin mobile..can you confirm your address.. Um..no Errr..im sorry I said no..your calling me..not me calling you..you have my address... Um..ok.. And why would you be calling me, when I spoke to you 3 hours ago. Um..okay, everything will stay as same Go to ask more..and they have hung up..phoned virgin..defo a hoax number..not one of theirs..they will ask for your name..and password!! EMPHASIS! on passwors characters!!.. Steer clear!
Claiming to be Virgin media, heavy Indian accent, don't think they are be aware as they are after info and say have offers from Virgin Media.
Rang today Indian woman called Anne I told her my name was jafar then she hung up
08001836403 called my mobile 4 times in last few days. Rarely use the mobile so all listed as missed calls. I did not ring back since very few people have my mobile number and I assumed that this was a random dialling scam.
Had a call by an Indian woman calling herself Anne-Marie from this number claiming to be from Virgin media, saying they need to calibrate my broadband, then asked me for my name, address and password on the account. I told them you have all that information in front of you because your ringing me, she then put the phone down. SCAM
I have been Virgin customer since December 2016 and over the last couple of weeks i have been receiving calls from 08001836403 at least once a day on my 3 mobile but let them go to voicemail, sometimes the person calling will identify themselves as from Virgin and sometime no message. Today I called 150 (Virgin) from my landline to inquire if this number was in fact a genuine Virgin number and was informed it was a sales number. The gentleman who took my call suggested I register my mobile number with the TPS (telephone preference service) on 03450700707 or online at the official TPS website, this he assured me would stop any further calls from Virgin but may take up to 28 days to become effective. I have now done this and will wait and see.
Have called me EVERY DAY for the past 2 weeks - blocked the number and they have now started leaving me 2 or 3 voicemails every day!!!!! Avoid
Some indian woman pretending to be Virgin Media asking for my details. I asked why they are calling at 9pm and she said they have a discount package for me. Was pushing for my details. I didn't give any, and I asked if she could supply a Virgin Media number for me to call back on as i didnt know who she was. The call went silent...........only to hang up few seconds later. Scam.
Indian women, then Indian man later on, very thick accents claiming to be Virgin Media. Obviously a scam DO NOT tell them anything.
Four calls now! Always same woman's voice with very strong accent that is difficult to understand. Each time told them we are not interested I doubt if it is Virgin media as this is not the way to get exra buisiness. Told them to send offer in writing of course they never did!
This number called me told them everything thought it was too go to be true rang virgin up after the call and its all legit
Claimed to be from Virgin Media and wanted to offer me a discounted package. I don't think they actually are virgin media!
They have called me everyday for 2 weeks sometimes as late as 9pm. Claim to be from Virgin but don't think this is the case.
Not Virgin as claimed. Do not give them any information, do not engage in conversation, block their number after the call.
Even if it is genuine from Virgin Media, do not buy any of their products and cancel existing contracts. The owner, Richard Branson is an arch Remainer, who is anti democratic by wanting to thwart 17.4m voters who want to leave the undemocratic and corrupt EU!
just recived a call from this number .I did answer claimed they were vm asked for my postcode when I said if you are from vm you should know my postcode they then hung up
Claimed to be Virgin Media and offered me a free 4G sim for my Virgin Mobile.........which I don't have!!!!
Just had a call from this number claiming to be Virgin Media and requesting access to my property to tune up my broadband. I declined the offer and straightway called Virgin Media (150 from my landline) to verify. I was told categorically that the call was not from VM and that I shouldn't let anyone into my house. They are scammers who install software onto your computer to record all your internet activity including internet banking details and passwords, they then proceed to empty your bank account. Virgin Medias' advice if they call again is to call the police.
This number has called me repeatedly to the point of harassment. They say they are Virgin media. My mobile phone is not through Virgin but my landline is. Despite repeated requests to call me on my virgin landline they continue to harrass my mobile. Fed up with them.
100% it is Virgin upgrading your box to latest model free of charge, I called Virgin on 150 and checked, who verified the number is genuine
We are Virgin customers If this is genuinely Virgin why are they not using our Virgin landline or calling both our mobile numbers and not just mine ?? I blocked number but they keep leaving V Mail messages .....which would be even more annoying if I had to pay to retrieve them. Just too harrassing 3 times a day/evening
Guys, this isn’t a scam. It’s virgin offering deals to existing customers. Yes it’s rather annoying and a bit odd that they insist on verifying by asking for your postcode and first line of address but that’s all they ask for. They are able to verify exactly what package you’re currently on and exactly how much you’re paying. Just to say - I gave them my postcode and accepted the new offer they were calling about. I have logged onto my virgin media profile a few hours later and sure enough it is showing my new package as per what I was offered on the phone via this new number. So how the hell is this a scam?!
I kept receiving calls from this number and I do use Virgin Media so I rang them and they told me to block it. I get text messages from Virgin. I never once got a text or a voicemail from this number. It's blocked.
Told them yesterday I do not partake within surveys (i.e. I don't trust the number). Didn't stop them violating my wishes and ringing back a few moments ago. Take the f**king hint...
Fine if you want to do a deal with Virgin Media as it's legitimate marketing from their Sales division - definitely not a "scam" call, as described by some of the unthinking sheep on this forum. Nevertheless, I blocked It!
This number called me this morning saying they were from virgin media and wanted me to answer some questions but I told them I was busy and put the phone down I do not do surveys over the phone
It’s all lies. This number is a scam. I confirmed it with Virgin after receiving a call this evening. Virgin has no calls recorded on my account from them to me this evening or earlier today. It’s is not who they say they are. Do not give out your details. If in doubt phone Virgin yourself and confirm. As the helpful wifey at Virgin said to me. They never phone customers except in certain circumstances. Also the Indian woman that called got extremely flustered when I asked to clarify what the call was about.
3 calls every day even though I have blocked them 4 days ago. Everyone saying it's virgin media but that's not what they told me when I answered a few days a go!!
This number is virgin sales i ordered a new phone through them and rang virgin to say id signed the agreement they confirmed this is legit n my new phones on its way.
Got called from this number when I started asking then questions to verify them they hung up, I would not tell them anything even my postcode,
All I can hear is hallo recorded on my voicemail. Keeps callig 10 times a day..blocked but keeps recording voicmails
Virgin media lol today we have had 3 phone call from them telling us we had problems and needed to upgrade. Even when the 2nd one was told that as we were speaking we were putting in the new box and hub he still didn't listen
Received a call from 0800-183 6403 at 12:21 today. I was out and although I have an answering machine, they didn't bother leaving a message, so it could not have been that important! It begs the question: Why phone in the first place? It would seem that they have multiple numbers - 0800-183 6416 - being another. From previous contributors on here, it depends on the day of the week as to 'which hat they are wearing', as their nuisance calls would seem to range from personal accident claims, to Virgin Media. Anyway, I have not had an accident and neither do I want or need an upgrade to my Virgin box. I have now blocked this number as well. ;-)
