Athough called approx 3or 4 pr day for about 2 weeks now, they still ring. No idea who they are, so annoyed they continue to attempt to call. I did try to call the number to find out who it was, but received the message that the number had been blocked. Received another call today and saw a message (presumably my service provider whether I wanted to leave a message to the caller. NO ! I don't want to engage with them I just want the scum to stop harassing myself & others. Personally a 9 rating is too low = 10
just constant calls out of the blue. I never answer.
Update on post of 13/6/2017. Only one call received after they agreed to remove number from"overseas list" ! Hopefully this will continue ?
Get a call from them nearly every day or a blank message to voicemail. This time I spoke to them and demanded that they remove my number from database. Lets see if it works!!!!
Update of 17/6:2017 ! Calls had started again after a brief respite. I again rang to complain and was told it takes ip to 40 days for list to be updated. Rep checked action had been taken !!!!! and said I should get no more calls after July 1st.
Annoyingly blank voicemails over 10 on the last several days. Number blocked
Also receiving numerous calls, not allowed to use our mobile at work so they are very demanding to get through. I can only think as I've had Virgin mobile pay as you go in the past these calls are related- not sure how they've got my new number as I'm on O2 contract now
Getting numerous calls from this number - Download Call Control - Call Blocker for Android to block it entirely.
blocked number but have 9 voicemails left in 5 days,
Nobody there but they managed to leave blank message
VM call re price increase due November 2017. Took out a contract in 2016 with GUARANTEED FIXED CONTRACT PRICE. Still have 6 months to run before contract is increased legitimately. WTF are they playing at? No respect shown.
Marking as neutral as it is genuinely Virgin Media sales department - Virgin have confirmed it - but they do call a lot and are usually trying to get you to take extra servicrs. At they moment they're calling to tell customers about the enormous price hike that's coming up. There's much better info about the price hike on Money Saving Expert website as the people calling don't seem to know much, or are lying about it.
call received - person said the were from virgin media and because I was a valued customer they wanted to talk to me about my account on some offers , they asked me for my first line of address and postcode , I said I was a bit suspicious and they hung up instantly. take what you want from that but id say someone is at it !
going to upgrade my Virgin Media account. (that will be a "first". Asking for my security info. I asked them to tell me my email address and my password. They refused because they said "data protection" etc. I said that is why I am NOT telling you. I have reported it to Virgin Media.
Claimed to be Virgin Media offering an upgrade to a new box as I am a long term customer, I have had this account less than a year so how is this long term? I guess VM customers are disgruntled with their customer services and so anything over 3 months is long term? they asked for my address, I told them I can not give it as I can not verify they are who they say they are, they replied if that's that case they can not continue with the call, to which I replied that only verifies my suspicion and then I hung up on them, I would expect if its genuine they would have pontificated a reliable verification source but nope
very persistent
Called me today and said i could have a new box, i ask why and i could not understand her reply, she ask me for my address, i said if you are VM you should know it, she replied i have to ask to make sure i am talking to the right person, i then ask her for my VM account number, she could not give it so i hung up on her and blocked the number on my mobile, The land line then rang, i did not answer and i then did 1471 the number was withheld. i a sure it was a scam. Forgot to say on answering my phone she ask for me by name, and just replied who is calling, so i did not give her any information at all.
Don't know how many times this number has called my mobile over the last few weeks, have been ignoring it and hsve not answered. They are very persistent.
I have blocked this number so my phone no longer rings but, it always goes to voicemail. They never leave a message. Currently getting about 5 calls a day - 2 in the morning, one at lunch, early eve and the last around 8pm. Driving me nuts!!!!
Claimed to be from VMedia said they were offering account holders disc., asking for passwords to verify data protection, I said you rang me etc ., I got suspicious when they said, to convince me I was with VM since such a Date - which was wrong........ Deff a SCAM As I contacted VM and no one had been in Account today, MOST Convincing call I've ever had ever BE WARY
wankers
Claimed to be Virgin Media but was some low life scammer
Just asked them for a new router they said 40 pound I said f...k o,.. And hung up!!! What a scam? 08001836404 that number
called at least 5 times today they just wont give up I wont answer them especially since reading these comments
These are scammers.
Several calls over the past week. Now blocked
I have just receiveda call from this number offering free VM equipment upgrade. I went along with it but then had doubts afterwards so called VM but they validated details of date booked so it seems ok. Clearly VM need to make it easier to validate cold callers
Claimed to be from Virgin Media offering me a free upgrade, I said email me you must have my email address, she said something about UK data protection laws. I said I would go on my VM account and check out upgrade and contact them but she said it is only a special offer for special customers and only free over the phone. I told her I was not interested. Defo a scam
I had a call this evening from someone claiming to be virgin media, they offered me a free upgrade from my current TiVo box........they just asked me for my address and post code to match the system, they then gave me a delivery date. Once I put the phone down I was slightly concerned it may have been a scam so I rung virgin straight away and they confirmed everything!!! happy it was Leget :)
I've had 4 calls from this number today, 12 in the last 5 days - they sure are persistent! I simply don't answer calls that are not in my contact list. It may well be Virgin Media offering me a free upgrade, but unless they can be arsed to write to me in person, they can f**k right off!
They are also using 08001836408. I've had calls on my mobile (which is with O2) offering upgrades from Virgin Media. Told the Indian woman I deal face to face with the local store.
Calls on a regular basis i will not answer unknown numbers,if it is legit why won't they leave a message and a contact number?very frustrating.
This number rang my mobile several times today. I will not answer as I don't know the source. It's a bit concerning that VM are telling some people that the number is genuine. If they want to give us upgrades they should contact directly with valid procedures for customers to be sure who they are.
Said they were VM and asked for first line of address and post code I refused and said send me an email, if it was VM they should know my email address, don't expect to get an email.
Continually spaming my phone 3 to 4 times a day, now been going on for weeks on end....
Been getting several calls from this no on my mobile which I ignored however I answered Home phone last night not realising who it was. This is a genuine virgin media no called to upgrade me to new v6 box. They asked me for postcode & first line of address I advised that I wasn’t comfortable giving info however woman said she could confirm my package details & monthly bill which was correct. New v6 box on its way & have received emails & texts to confirm this
Had the same number call me a few times over the past few months. Answered it today and the guy on the end of the phone was barely able to communicate in English. The upshot is they were offering to send me a free V6 box to replace my old Tivo which is apparently being taken out of service. So the box and delivery is free.....I have to set the box up.....then VM charge me twenty quid on my next bill for activation.....No thanks, I'll wait until VM decide to kill my Tivo and then I stop the direct debit.
I have been a customer o vm for 18 years ,if they can't be bother to contact in the normal way then I must cancel my account
This was Virgin Media - glad i did answer as I've now got the new V6 box for free and got to keep my old one too. I will add that they are quite dogged
Received a couple of missed calls from this number today. I refuse to answer any calls from unknown numbers and now it is blocked. I do not know where they have got my number from because I have not had any dealings with Virgin Media, if that is who they are.
I am repeatedly getting calls from this number which I don't answer. I phoned VM who confirmed it is the sales team. It was put to me if you are not having any issues with the current box, there is no need to upgrade. So I will continue to ignore the calls. Also I received an email today saying my account details have expired and the service would be discontinued unless I updated via the link. VM confirmed this is a scam and should be deleted.
Call repeatedly. So annoying also as they leave a voicemail but don't say anything. Block!!
Called me on my mobile. When I answered call - silence. just hung up.
Same here....08001836409.I informed them I work in UK and EU DP/GDPR and that by asking me for my postcode and address when calling randomly from overseas was not gonna fly. Someone needs to tell VM...its customers will not but into his crap way of seeking to up sell. durrrrrrrrrrrrr
Repeated calls to my mobile. I have told them twice I am not interested and to remove me from the list. They continue to call two to three times a day from an overseas call centre. Telling me they can save me money by finally telling me that I have to pay more to save money.
Said was from VM asked for post code and first line of my address, I said if you were from VM you would know it so told him I'd didn't believe he was from VM AND HUNG UP!
Person called, stating they were from Virgin media. I said I am happy to talk but not right now so I would like to take their number & call back. She said mild stressed as she pretended not to hear multiple times and stated she would call me. I told her if she can not identify herself and she is genuine she will have other numbers on file for me. She said no problem I will call them. I contacted Virgin & they said that is not a sales call from them. Not genuine.
I did not engage in conversation with him, told him not to phone my mobile any more as I use it only for family and friends. In my opinion all unsolicited calls are a nuisance and could never be classed as neutral, especially when they ring again.
Not sure who they are, only time I answered they hung-up. Other times they've hung-up before I answered or it has gone to voice mail and they've left 'keyboard noises' as their call They have called my mobile 11 times over last 10 days
Vmedia constantly. if you try to complain they block the number and will not accept.b pain
Virgin Media - very persistent and always at the wrong time of day
Always ringing up .
Keep getting a call from this number but when I respond, there is never anyone there. It's hugely annoying!
Constantly calling 4_5 times a day
Fuck off
TOSSPOTS thats who they are do not answer
left voicemail but on listening no message just background noises
Have called at least three times to my non-Virgin mobile number. Always foreign accent, talking about being from Virgin Media with a new customer offer. They only know my name, ask me questions about my account and services. I say, you should know that, what is my account number? Never able to tell me my address or account, so I just told them that I can't verify they are who they say. Latest woman called simply said "But I've told you, I'm from Virgin Media with a legitimate offer!". It seems that they probably are connected with VM, but all they are tasked with doing is trying to cold sell you additional services. Bad form VM, very bad form indeed. Blocked.
Constant calling - received more than 10 calls over past 5 days. Leave silent voicemails
used to call every week, then stopped. now started up again. vg sales
Frequent unsolicited calls. Blocked
QQ I am a virgin customer and don't take kindly to being called time after time it's unsolicited and wish it would stop I have never given virgin permission to share my number so please get it sorted
Called me last week a few times, yesterday and today leaves silent message, its getting on my bloody nerves
Called a few minutes ago. Could hear background noise but no speech and then they hung up. Highly suspicious.
This number has been calling me at least once a day for the last week! Highly annoying
As other callers, silent. If Virgin Media are connected with this they should be fined heavily and have their licence revoked by Ofcom
Lady with foreign accent called my wife’s mobile (not even listed with VM) offering a great deal ?!? She asked for my address to which I refused. I asked why she hadn’t called on my vm landline. She said she would call me back from the vm line! Surprise surprise! No call....
A woman calling from virgin media, wants info from me such as address and details.
Used to call daily, then stopped, now started again A couple of times I did get a person who claimed to be from Virgin Media offering an upgrade I hung up
This number called my mobile, unsolicited.
2 missed calls 2 days in a row. Both sent to voicemail and 10 and 8 sec messages left which was just silence! No thanks. Especially when you're waiting for a call
Called me three times yesterday and one today - ignore them! Have now blocked the number - blooming nuisance!
Claimed to be from Virgin media but didn't know my address etc. Teminated the call. I have had similar calls from 0800 183 6408.
Absolute pain in the arse ! have been phoning every day for past couple of weeks , including 7.30pm on a Saturday night. I am a Virgin media and Virgin mobile customer. Blocked the number on my mobile , but they seem to be able to over ride the blocking and still manage to get through. Very sneaky. My phone recognises the number as having been blocked previously , just make it even more annoying. I reject the calls and have no intention of answering.
Rang twice in a couple of hours. Someone claiming to be from virgin media, asked me who I was then when I said they called me who are they they hung up on me, blocked them now.
Mob rang did not answer checked who called me and like everyone else blocked number when I get land line calls with usual ‘your computer / mob / microwave needs upgrade I tell them ‘just a moment while I switch my phone tracker on they hang up or if they ask ‘is that mr .......... I say hang on i’ll get him then leave the phone by the tv that really pisses them off or another answer is ‘sorry you want the man next door ‘ then hang up
Same problem calls starting with 0800 on landline too - calls to mobile started on Tuesday from +800136404 3 calls on Wed, one at 8 oclock in evening. 3 calls Thurs and again this mornning will block after seeing these comments. Got voicemail alerts but no messages left, however I've been told by manager of Post Office recently that legitimate businesses are not allowed to call and leave mesages unless they've had your permission to do so. Originally thought it was related to an outgoing call I made on Monday given the strange number but obviously not - very annoying!
Received a call from this number.The caller did not claim to be from Virgin Media.His accent sounded like he was from India.He immediately went into a tirade about saying how he was "never going to stay with her and that he was finishing it and breaking up with her". Then the line went dead...Sounds like a scam to me. Probably thinking I would call back and say he rang the wrong number..I'd get charged for the call...I don't know what would have happened..It seemed really dodgy to me though..That's why I came straight on to here.
Very odd
I have had a missed call from this number on my mobile and landline. I never ever give my land line number to anyone so I do wonder where they got my number from, must be something to do with VM!
Calling non stop, 6 times in one day! Have not answered.
I got a new sim from virgin as they said they were upgrading them and I had to replace it. I put it in my phone last week. From that moment I am getting called between 8-10 times every day. I've blocked the number but my phone still texts me to say they have called. Theres too many VM customers on this forum for this to be a coincidence!

Seemingly this is a genuine Virgin Media number as I checked. However, I would advise hanging up and phoning virginmedia direct from your own account. The reason being is that virginmedia should have some form of identity verification procedure in place so you know it's really they who is calling - they should be aware that scammers phone residency and mobile numbers regularly and it's simply not wise for any recipient to give out personal information without being assured of the callers identity.
Received a call (which I missed) googled to see who called Me ? I wont call number back or even try It via landline ... as Im not interested in unknown numbers that call Me! If Its a scam ... can I ask the provider where they got my number ... as Im not with THAT provider, so why would U be contacting Me ??? Basically DO NOT CALL AGAIN!!! Ive had too many "unknown" calls or texts that are scam and if it comes to It ... I will involve the POLICE Thank U and good day!
Never had calls like this before. Funny how I just recently signed up to VirginMedia I start getting these calls "about my virginmedia account", when clearly they are not from virgin. It was Indian in a call centre of sorts. I seem to remember calling virgin media's preinstallation team to cancel my virginmedia before the contract started. They were an Indian call centre too! I think someone is leaking our details from the virgin call centre in India. They can't be trusted with anything! Give us back the British call centres!
lucky that i missed the call!
This is my second "comment" !!!!!!!!! First comment uploaded on 02/02/17 .... WILL VIRGIN MEDIA (The So Called Company/Agents) STOP CALLING ME !!!!!!!!! Im Pissed Off and will now be in contact via POLICE !!!!!!!!!
Annoying missed call no message
CAN VIRGIN MEDIA STOP!!!! CALLING A "CUSTOMER" WHO IS ON BT ... THAT CUSTOMER IS NOT INTERESTED ... THINK I'LL STOP USING A MOBILE !!!!!!!!! IM VERY ANGRY !!!!!!!!! THE SO-CALLED POLICE WILL NOW BE INVOLVED AND CALL YOU ON ABOVE NUMBER !!!!!!!!!
No need to SHOUT.
twice daily for days, no message pure harrassment
This is a genuine Virgin Media Sales Team number, call centre is based in Philippines. I've had 14 calls from them in 3 weeks I am a Virgin customer and all they do is try to get you on a higher package. It's seriously annoying. I just ignore them now.
virgin media called. All those paranoid people thinking its a scam as they can't give out details need to read the Data Protection Act. Once you have confirmed your identity they can discuss your account. I am glad they wouldn't give out information before they know they are speaking to the account holder. if you want to be sure who you are speaking to you can always call them back on a number you know belongs to Virgin and asked to be put through. on the down side, they are rather persistent in calling until you answer the phone.
If you receive a call from this number and they claim to be virgin media DO NOT give them any information it's a scam! Just ask them to call you back on your virgin media land line number and they will hang up. I rang virgin myself and asked them what contact numbers they had for me and they do not have my mobile number, I explained about the call I had received and they lady told me it was probably a scam call.
Claimed to be Virgin Media - Wanted information and to sell a telecoms package.
They asked for my address details I said I don't give any details on the phone She hung up straight away
It is a scam. Do not give out any information. If you ring back to that number - you can't be connected with a person at all.
It's virgin media! Glad I answered the call got the best package ever! 12 months free tivo box with one highest packages and then recently upgraded to everything for £8 a month!
I rang Virgin Media because I had several calls from this number. They told me that this number is not their's!
Claimed to be Virgin Media - asked for confirmation of address and post code! When I said I don't give iut that information to incoming calls, she spoke very abruptly ( almost rude ) and hung up!
Please report scam callers to the ICO. Scammers do not care if you post here; they DO worry when they are reported to the ICO, which takes 2 minutes or less on their sites. Your phone company don't care as they get to sell you caller ID and increase their revenue for call blocking.
this number rings my mobile 2 &3 times a day, when my son answered they told him it was virgin media then when he asked for proof and to ring back on the landline they just hang up.
Claimed to be from Virginia media. Said i was selected for a discount. Wanted my address and date of birth to verify who I was.I said tell me my monthly bill amount so I know your from virgin media. He was unable to do that. He tried to persuade me a few times.I then hung up.
Virginal media trying to offer exclusive upgrades to your service
Seems like a scam
When i asked his name he said ivor bolokoff. I replyed that sounds serious mate.phone for ambulance.lively.!!!!!!!
I have been getting calls from this number 3 or 4 times a day for the last 6 days. No one speaks when I say hello so I hang up. Its annoying
Ring me several times a day,no one speaks,annoying
"Virgin Media" calling about discounts - she wanted to verify account details and asked for my postcode - I said "you called me so you tell me what you have and I will verify it", which she did and it was correct - she then asked me 1st line of address, to which I responded like the previous question and the line went dead. Number now blocked.
said she was from virgin media something about better services I could get said all calls being recorded for training purposes asked for postcode and first line of address which I gave her (silly me ) then asked me to wait a moment appeared to be shuffling papers then said she would have to ring me back as they were updating services call ended obviously was not virgin media as Number did not match take care don't give details
Complete pest.
Virgin media called my mobile to offer me a free six month trial of Sky Cinema with no strings attached. However, I later discovered I was actually being charged half price. According to customer services the call was from their telesales team and I've managed to get my trial cancelled and the charges refunded. So, I'm marking this as neutral. Genuine Virgin Media but with mis-selling.
Richard Branson called me using this number
Over 50 calls from this no. since Mid January, 4 today. Keep calling I'll just keep auto blocking..
I've just called Virgin Media customer services ( the number is one of theirs) as absolutely fed up with receiving calls continually from this number day and night for the last couple of weeks. After going through various depts I've got my mobile number removed from Virgin Media's 'Offshore Sales Team' list, I was told it will take 24/48 hours to take effect and that I should receive no more calls or emails. Watch this space
I blocked the number but the logs show 10 calls per week for the last 3 weeks. Today I got a voicemail instead - but it was emoty.
I wish they would leave me alone whoever they are. These calls are dead annoying. I get them in phases. I go abroad and get none, then as soon as I top up my virgin pay as you go, the calls start again twice a day. I never answer.

Annoying, waste of time
This number is calling me daily. I had no idea who they were. No message is left. It only rings a few times. Very annoying
Twice daily calls ! Some quite late in the evening . It's Virgin Media sales team overseas. Rang customer service and asked for my contract to be ended as it was the only way I could think of stopping them. They were very apologetic and asked me to wait a few minutes as they could delete me from this (in their words-other list !).Have been told it takes 24 hrs to take effect. Fingers crossed!
Several calls per week, only answered once never again.VirginMedia (overseas?) sales trying to get me to convert from pay-as-you-go to a contract, when I ask to see the terms and conditions on the website they said the offer was only available if agreed there and then on the phone. a contract implies that you are made aware of the terms and conditions prior to agreeing to anything! what a scam......
Update on post of 13/6/2017. Only one call received after they agreed to remove number from"overseas list" ! Hopefully this will continue ?
Get a call from them nearly every day or a blank message to voicemail. This time I spoke to them and demanded that they remove my number from database. Lets see if it works!!!!
Update of 17/6:2017 ! Calls had started again after a brief respite. I again rang to complain and was told it takes ip to 40 days for list to be updated. Rep checked action had been taken !!!!! and said I should get no more calls after July 1st.
Annoyingly blank voicemails over 10 on the last several days. Number blocked
Also receiving numerous calls, not allowed to use our mobile at work so they are very demanding to get through. I can only think as I've had Virgin mobile pay as you go in the past these calls are related- not sure how they've got my new number as I'm on O2 contract now
Getting numerous calls from this number - Download Call Control - Call Blocker for Android to block it entirely.
blocked number but have 9 voicemails left in 5 days,
Nobody there but they managed to leave blank message
VM call re price increase due November 2017. Took out a contract in 2016 with GUARANTEED FIXED CONTRACT PRICE. Still have 6 months to run before contract is increased legitimately. WTF are they playing at? No respect shown.
Marking as neutral as it is genuinely Virgin Media sales department - Virgin have confirmed it - but they do call a lot and are usually trying to get you to take extra servicrs. At they moment they're calling to tell customers about the enormous price hike that's coming up. There's much better info about the price hike on Money Saving Expert website as the people calling don't seem to know much, or are lying about it.
call received - person said the were from virgin media and because I was a valued customer they wanted to talk to me about my account on some offers , they asked me for my first line of address and postcode , I said I was a bit suspicious and they hung up instantly. take what you want from that but id say someone is at it !
going to upgrade my Virgin Media account. (that will be a "first". Asking for my security info. I asked them to tell me my email address and my password. They refused because they said "data protection" etc. I said that is why I am NOT telling you. I have reported it to Virgin Media.
Claimed to be Virgin Media offering an upgrade to a new box as I am a long term customer, I have had this account less than a year so how is this long term? I guess VM customers are disgruntled with their customer services and so anything over 3 months is long term? they asked for my address, I told them I can not give it as I can not verify they are who they say they are, they replied if that's that case they can not continue with the call, to which I replied that only verifies my suspicion and then I hung up on them, I would expect if its genuine they would have pontificated a reliable verification source but nope
very persistent
Called me today and said i could have a new box, i ask why and i could not understand her reply, she ask me for my address, i said if you are VM you should know it, she replied i have to ask to make sure i am talking to the right person, i then ask her for my VM account number, she could not give it so i hung up on her and blocked the number on my mobile, The land line then rang, i did not answer and i then did 1471 the number was withheld. i a sure it was a scam. Forgot to say on answering my phone she ask for me by name, and just replied who is calling, so i did not give her any information at all.
Don't know how many times this number has called my mobile over the last few weeks, have been ignoring it and hsve not answered. They are very persistent.
I have blocked this number so my phone no longer rings but, it always goes to voicemail. They never leave a message. Currently getting about 5 calls a day - 2 in the morning, one at lunch, early eve and the last around 8pm. Driving me nuts!!!!
Claimed to be from VMedia said they were offering account holders disc., asking for passwords to verify data protection, I said you rang me etc ., I got suspicious when they said, to convince me I was with VM since such a Date - which was wrong........ Deff a SCAM As I contacted VM and no one had been in Account today, MOST Convincing call I've ever had ever BE WARY
wankers
Claimed to be Virgin Media but was some low life scammer
Just asked them for a new router they said 40 pound I said f...k o,.. And hung up!!! What a scam? 08001836404 that number
called at least 5 times today they just wont give up I wont answer them especially since reading these comments
These are scammers.
Several calls over the past week. Now blocked
I have just receiveda call from this number offering free VM equipment upgrade. I went along with it but then had doubts afterwards so called VM but they validated details of date booked so it seems ok. Clearly VM need to make it easier to validate cold callers
Claimed to be from Virgin Media offering me a free upgrade, I said email me you must have my email address, she said something about UK data protection laws. I said I would go on my VM account and check out upgrade and contact them but she said it is only a special offer for special customers and only free over the phone. I told her I was not interested. Defo a scam
I had a call this evening from someone claiming to be virgin media, they offered me a free upgrade from my current TiVo box........they just asked me for my address and post code to match the system, they then gave me a delivery date. Once I put the phone down I was slightly concerned it may have been a scam so I rung virgin straight away and they confirmed everything!!! happy it was Leget :)
I've had 4 calls from this number today, 12 in the last 5 days - they sure are persistent! I simply don't answer calls that are not in my contact list. It may well be Virgin Media offering me a free upgrade, but unless they can be arsed to write to me in person, they can f**k right off!
They are also using 08001836408. I've had calls on my mobile (which is with O2) offering upgrades from Virgin Media. Told the Indian woman I deal face to face with the local store.
Calls on a regular basis i will not answer unknown numbers,if it is legit why won't they leave a message and a contact number?very frustrating.
This number rang my mobile several times today. I will not answer as I don't know the source. It's a bit concerning that VM are telling some people that the number is genuine. If they want to give us upgrades they should contact directly with valid procedures for customers to be sure who they are.
Said they were VM and asked for first line of address and post code I refused and said send me an email, if it was VM they should know my email address, don't expect to get an email.
Continually spaming my phone 3 to 4 times a day, now been going on for weeks on end....
Been getting several calls from this no on my mobile which I ignored however I answered Home phone last night not realising who it was. This is a genuine virgin media no called to upgrade me to new v6 box. They asked me for postcode & first line of address I advised that I wasn’t comfortable giving info however woman said she could confirm my package details & monthly bill which was correct. New v6 box on its way & have received emails & texts to confirm this
Had the same number call me a few times over the past few months. Answered it today and the guy on the end of the phone was barely able to communicate in English. The upshot is they were offering to send me a free V6 box to replace my old Tivo which is apparently being taken out of service. So the box and delivery is free.....I have to set the box up.....then VM charge me twenty quid on my next bill for activation.....No thanks, I'll wait until VM decide to kill my Tivo and then I stop the direct debit.
I have been a customer o vm for 18 years ,if they can't be bother to contact in the normal way then I must cancel my account
This was Virgin Media - glad i did answer as I've now got the new V6 box for free and got to keep my old one too. I will add that they are quite dogged
Received a couple of missed calls from this number today. I refuse to answer any calls from unknown numbers and now it is blocked. I do not know where they have got my number from because I have not had any dealings with Virgin Media, if that is who they are.
I am repeatedly getting calls from this number which I don't answer. I phoned VM who confirmed it is the sales team. It was put to me if you are not having any issues with the current box, there is no need to upgrade. So I will continue to ignore the calls. Also I received an email today saying my account details have expired and the service would be discontinued unless I updated via the link. VM confirmed this is a scam and should be deleted.
Call repeatedly. So annoying also as they leave a voicemail but don't say anything. Block!!
Called me on my mobile. When I answered call - silence. just hung up.
Same here....08001836409.I informed them I work in UK and EU DP/GDPR and that by asking me for my postcode and address when calling randomly from overseas was not gonna fly. Someone needs to tell VM...its customers will not but into his crap way of seeking to up sell. durrrrrrrrrrrrr
Repeated calls to my mobile. I have told them twice I am not interested and to remove me from the list. They continue to call two to three times a day from an overseas call centre. Telling me they can save me money by finally telling me that I have to pay more to save money.
Said was from VM asked for post code and first line of my address, I said if you were from VM you would know it so told him I'd didn't believe he was from VM AND HUNG UP!
Person called, stating they were from Virgin media. I said I am happy to talk but not right now so I would like to take their number & call back. She said mild stressed as she pretended not to hear multiple times and stated she would call me. I told her if she can not identify herself and she is genuine she will have other numbers on file for me. She said no problem I will call them. I contacted Virgin & they said that is not a sales call from them. Not genuine.
I did not engage in conversation with him, told him not to phone my mobile any more as I use it only for family and friends. In my opinion all unsolicited calls are a nuisance and could never be classed as neutral, especially when they ring again.
Not sure who they are, only time I answered they hung-up. Other times they've hung-up before I answered or it has gone to voice mail and they've left 'keyboard noises' as their call They have called my mobile 11 times over last 10 days
Vmedia constantly. if you try to complain they block the number and will not accept.b pain
Virgin Media - very persistent and always at the wrong time of day
Always ringing up .
Keep getting a call from this number but when I respond, there is never anyone there. It's hugely annoying!
Constantly calling 4_5 times a day
Fuck off
TOSSPOTS thats who they are do not answer
left voicemail but on listening no message just background noises
Have called at least three times to my non-Virgin mobile number. Always foreign accent, talking about being from Virgin Media with a new customer offer. They only know my name, ask me questions about my account and services. I say, you should know that, what is my account number? Never able to tell me my address or account, so I just told them that I can't verify they are who they say. Latest woman called simply said "But I've told you, I'm from Virgin Media with a legitimate offer!". It seems that they probably are connected with VM, but all they are tasked with doing is trying to cold sell you additional services. Bad form VM, very bad form indeed. Blocked.
Constant calling - received more than 10 calls over past 5 days. Leave silent voicemails
used to call every week, then stopped. now started up again. vg sales
Frequent unsolicited calls. Blocked
QQ I am a virgin customer and don't take kindly to being called time after time it's unsolicited and wish it would stop I have never given virgin permission to share my number so please get it sorted
Called me last week a few times, yesterday and today leaves silent message, its getting on my bloody nerves
Called a few minutes ago. Could hear background noise but no speech and then they hung up. Highly suspicious.
This number has been calling me at least once a day for the last week! Highly annoying
As other callers, silent. If Virgin Media are connected with this they should be fined heavily and have their licence revoked by Ofcom
Lady with foreign accent called my wife’s mobile (not even listed with VM) offering a great deal ?!? She asked for my address to which I refused. I asked why she hadn’t called on my vm landline. She said she would call me back from the vm line! Surprise surprise! No call....
A woman calling from virgin media, wants info from me such as address and details.
Used to call daily, then stopped, now started again A couple of times I did get a person who claimed to be from Virgin Media offering an upgrade I hung up
This number called my mobile, unsolicited.
2 missed calls 2 days in a row. Both sent to voicemail and 10 and 8 sec messages left which was just silence! No thanks. Especially when you're waiting for a call
Called me three times yesterday and one today - ignore them! Have now blocked the number - blooming nuisance!
Claimed to be from Virgin media but didn't know my address etc. Teminated the call. I have had similar calls from 0800 183 6408.
Absolute pain in the arse ! have been phoning every day for past couple of weeks , including 7.30pm on a Saturday night. I am a Virgin media and Virgin mobile customer. Blocked the number on my mobile , but they seem to be able to over ride the blocking and still manage to get through. Very sneaky. My phone recognises the number as having been blocked previously , just make it even more annoying. I reject the calls and have no intention of answering.
Rang twice in a couple of hours. Someone claiming to be from virgin media, asked me who I was then when I said they called me who are they they hung up on me, blocked them now.
Mob rang did not answer checked who called me and like everyone else blocked number when I get land line calls with usual ‘your computer / mob / microwave needs upgrade I tell them ‘just a moment while I switch my phone tracker on they hang up or if they ask ‘is that mr .......... I say hang on i’ll get him then leave the phone by the tv that really pisses them off or another answer is ‘sorry you want the man next door ‘ then hang up
Same problem calls starting with 0800 on landline too - calls to mobile started on Tuesday from +800136404 3 calls on Wed, one at 8 oclock in evening. 3 calls Thurs and again this mornning will block after seeing these comments. Got voicemail alerts but no messages left, however I've been told by manager of Post Office recently that legitimate businesses are not allowed to call and leave mesages unless they've had your permission to do so. Originally thought it was related to an outgoing call I made on Monday given the strange number but obviously not - very annoying!
Received a call from this number.The caller did not claim to be from Virgin Media.His accent sounded like he was from India.He immediately went into a tirade about saying how he was "never going to stay with her and that he was finishing it and breaking up with her". Then the line went dead...Sounds like a scam to me. Probably thinking I would call back and say he rang the wrong number..I'd get charged for the call...I don't know what would have happened..It seemed really dodgy to me though..That's why I came straight on to here.
Very odd
I have had a missed call from this number on my mobile and landline. I never ever give my land line number to anyone so I do wonder where they got my number from, must be something to do with VM!
Calling non stop, 6 times in one day! Have not answered.
I got a new sim from virgin as they said they were upgrading them and I had to replace it. I put it in my phone last week. From that moment I am getting called between 8-10 times every day. I've blocked the number but my phone still texts me to say they have called. Theres too many VM customers on this forum for this to be a coincidence!
Seemingly this is a genuine Virgin Media number as I checked. However, I would advise hanging up and phoning virginmedia direct from your own account. The reason being is that virginmedia should have some form of identity verification procedure in place so you know it's really they who is calling - they should be aware that scammers phone residency and mobile numbers regularly and it's simply not wise for any recipient to give out personal information without being assured of the callers identity.
Received a call (which I missed) googled to see who called Me ? I wont call number back or even try It via landline ... as Im not interested in unknown numbers that call Me! If Its a scam ... can I ask the provider where they got my number ... as Im not with THAT provider, so why would U be contacting Me ??? Basically DO NOT CALL AGAIN!!! Ive had too many "unknown" calls or texts that are scam and if it comes to It ... I will involve the POLICE Thank U and good day!
Never had calls like this before. Funny how I just recently signed up to VirginMedia I start getting these calls "about my virginmedia account", when clearly they are not from virgin. It was Indian in a call centre of sorts. I seem to remember calling virgin media's preinstallation team to cancel my virginmedia before the contract started. They were an Indian call centre too! I think someone is leaking our details from the virgin call centre in India. They can't be trusted with anything! Give us back the British call centres!
lucky that i missed the call!
This is my second "comment" !!!!!!!!! First comment uploaded on 02/02/17 .... WILL VIRGIN MEDIA (The So Called Company/Agents) STOP CALLING ME !!!!!!!!! Im Pissed Off and will now be in contact via POLICE !!!!!!!!!
Annoying missed call no message
CAN VIRGIN MEDIA STOP!!!! CALLING A "CUSTOMER" WHO IS ON BT ... THAT CUSTOMER IS NOT INTERESTED ... THINK I'LL STOP USING A MOBILE !!!!!!!!! IM VERY ANGRY !!!!!!!!! THE SO-CALLED POLICE WILL NOW BE INVOLVED AND CALL YOU ON ABOVE NUMBER !!!!!!!!!
No need to SHOUT.
twice daily for days, no message pure harrassment
This is a genuine Virgin Media Sales Team number, call centre is based in Philippines. I've had 14 calls from them in 3 weeks I am a Virgin customer and all they do is try to get you on a higher package. It's seriously annoying. I just ignore them now.
virgin media called. All those paranoid people thinking its a scam as they can't give out details need to read the Data Protection Act. Once you have confirmed your identity they can discuss your account. I am glad they wouldn't give out information before they know they are speaking to the account holder. if you want to be sure who you are speaking to you can always call them back on a number you know belongs to Virgin and asked to be put through. on the down side, they are rather persistent in calling until you answer the phone.
If you receive a call from this number and they claim to be virgin media DO NOT give them any information it's a scam! Just ask them to call you back on your virgin media land line number and they will hang up. I rang virgin myself and asked them what contact numbers they had for me and they do not have my mobile number, I explained about the call I had received and they lady told me it was probably a scam call.
Claimed to be Virgin Media - Wanted information and to sell a telecoms package.
They asked for my address details I said I don't give any details on the phone She hung up straight away
It is a scam. Do not give out any information. If you ring back to that number - you can't be connected with a person at all.
It's virgin media! Glad I answered the call got the best package ever! 12 months free tivo box with one highest packages and then recently upgraded to everything for £8 a month!
I rang Virgin Media because I had several calls from this number. They told me that this number is not their's!
Claimed to be Virgin Media - asked for confirmation of address and post code! When I said I don't give iut that information to incoming calls, she spoke very abruptly ( almost rude ) and hung up!
Please report scam callers to the ICO. Scammers do not care if you post here; they DO worry when they are reported to the ICO, which takes 2 minutes or less on their sites. Your phone company don't care as they get to sell you caller ID and increase their revenue for call blocking.
this number rings my mobile 2 &3 times a day, when my son answered they told him it was virgin media then when he asked for proof and to ring back on the landline they just hang up.
Claimed to be from Virginia media. Said i was selected for a discount. Wanted my address and date of birth to verify who I was.I said tell me my monthly bill amount so I know your from virgin media. He was unable to do that. He tried to persuade me a few times.I then hung up.
Virginal media trying to offer exclusive upgrades to your service
Seems like a scam
When i asked his name he said ivor bolokoff. I replyed that sounds serious mate.phone for ambulance.lively.!!!!!!!
I have been getting calls from this number 3 or 4 times a day for the last 6 days. No one speaks when I say hello so I hang up. Its annoying
Ring me several times a day,no one speaks,annoying
"Virgin Media" calling about discounts - she wanted to verify account details and asked for my postcode - I said "you called me so you tell me what you have and I will verify it", which she did and it was correct - she then asked me 1st line of address, to which I responded like the previous question and the line went dead. Number now blocked.
said she was from virgin media something about better services I could get said all calls being recorded for training purposes asked for postcode and first line of address which I gave her (silly me ) then asked me to wait a moment appeared to be shuffling papers then said she would have to ring me back as they were updating services call ended obviously was not virgin media as Number did not match take care don't give details
Complete pest.
Virgin media called my mobile to offer me a free six month trial of Sky Cinema with no strings attached. However, I later discovered I was actually being charged half price. According to customer services the call was from their telesales team and I've managed to get my trial cancelled and the charges refunded. So, I'm marking this as neutral. Genuine Virgin Media but with mis-selling.
Richard Branson called me using this number
Over 50 calls from this no. since Mid January, 4 today. Keep calling I'll just keep auto blocking..
I've just called Virgin Media customer services ( the number is one of theirs) as absolutely fed up with receiving calls continually from this number day and night for the last couple of weeks. After going through various depts I've got my mobile number removed from Virgin Media's 'Offshore Sales Team' list, I was told it will take 24/48 hours to take effect and that I should receive no more calls or emails. Watch this space
I blocked the number but the logs show 10 calls per week for the last 3 weeks. Today I got a voicemail instead - but it was emoty.
I wish they would leave me alone whoever they are. These calls are dead annoying. I get them in phases. I go abroad and get none, then as soon as I top up my virgin pay as you go, the calls start again twice a day. I never answer.

Annoying, waste of time
This number is calling me daily. I had no idea who they were. No message is left. It only rings a few times. Very annoying
Twice daily calls ! Some quite late in the evening . It's Virgin Media sales team overseas. Rang customer service and asked for my contract to be ended as it was the only way I could think of stopping them. They were very apologetic and asked me to wait a few minutes as they could delete me from this (in their words-other list !).Have been told it takes 24 hrs to take effect. Fingers crossed!
Several calls per week, only answered once never again.VirginMedia (overseas?) sales trying to get me to convert from pay-as-you-go to a contract, when I ask to see the terms and conditions on the website they said the offer was only available if agreed there and then on the phone. a contract implies that you are made aware of the terms and conditions prior to agreeing to anything! what a scam......
Update on post of 13/6/2017. Only one call received after they agreed to remove number from"overseas list" ! Hopefully this will continue ?
Get a call from them nearly every day or a blank message to voicemail. This time I spoke to them and demanded that they remove my number from database. Lets see if it works!!!!
Update of 17/6:2017 ! Calls had started again after a brief respite. I again rang to complain and was told it takes ip to 40 days for list to be updated. Rep checked action had been taken !!!!! and said I should get no more calls after July 1st.
Annoyingly blank voicemails over 10 on the last several days. Number blocked
Also receiving numerous calls, not allowed to use our mobile at work so they are very demanding to get through. I can only think as I've had Virgin mobile pay as you go in the past these calls are related- not sure how they've got my new number as I'm on O2 contract now
Getting numerous calls from this number - Download Call Control - Call Blocker for Android to block it entirely.
blocked number but have 9 voicemails left in 5 days,
Nobody there but they managed to leave blank message
VM call re price increase due November 2017. Took out a contract in 2016 with GUARANTEED FIXED CONTRACT PRICE. Still have 6 months to run before contract is increased legitimately. WTF are they playing at? No respect shown.
Marking as neutral as it is genuinely Virgin Media sales department - Virgin have confirmed it - but they do call a lot and are usually trying to get you to take extra servicrs. At they moment they're calling to tell customers about the enormous price hike that's coming up. There's much better info about the price hike on Money Saving Expert website as the people calling don't seem to know much, or are lying about it.
call received - person said the were from virgin media and because I was a valued customer they wanted to talk to me about my account on some offers , they asked me for my first line of address and postcode , I said I was a bit suspicious and they hung up instantly. take what you want from that but id say someone is at it !
going to upgrade my Virgin Media account. (that will be a "first". Asking for my security info. I asked them to tell me my email address and my password. They refused because they said "data protection" etc. I said that is why I am NOT telling you. I have reported it to Virgin Media.
Claimed to be Virgin Media offering an upgrade to a new box as I am a long term customer, I have had this account less than a year so how is this long term? I guess VM customers are disgruntled with their customer services and so anything over 3 months is long term? they asked for my address, I told them I can not give it as I can not verify they are who they say they are, they replied if that's that case they can not continue with the call, to which I replied that only verifies my suspicion and then I hung up on them, I would expect if its genuine they would have pontificated a reliable verification source but nope
very persistent
Called me today and said i could have a new box, i ask why and i could not understand her reply, she ask me for my address, i said if you are VM you should know it, she replied i have to ask to make sure i am talking to the right person, i then ask her for my VM account number, she could not give it so i hung up on her and blocked the number on my mobile, The land line then rang, i did not answer and i then did 1471 the number was withheld. i a sure it was a scam. Forgot to say on answering my phone she ask for me by name, and just replied who is calling, so i did not give her any information at all.

Lady with foreign accent called my wife’s mobile (not even listed with VM) offering a great deal ?!? She asked for my address to which I refused. I asked why she hadn’t called on my vm landline. She said she would call me back from the vm line! Surprise surprise! No call....
A woman calling from virgin media, wants info from me such as address and details.
Used to call daily, then stopped, now started again A couple of times I did get a person who claimed to be from Virgin Media offering an upgrade I hung up
This number called my mobile, unsolicited.
2 missed calls 2 days in a row. Both sent to voicemail and 10 and 8 sec messages left which was just silence! No thanks. Especially when you're waiting for a call
Called me three times yesterday and one today - ignore them! Have now blocked the number - blooming nuisance!
Claimed to be from Virgin media but didn't know my address etc. Teminated the call. I have had similar calls from 0800 183 6408.
Absolute pain in the arse ! have been phoning every day for past couple of weeks , including 7.30pm on a Saturday night. I am a Virgin media and Virgin mobile customer. Blocked the number on my mobile , but they seem to be able to over ride the blocking and still manage to get through. Very sneaky. My phone recognises the number as having been blocked previously , just make it even more annoying. I reject the calls and have no intention of answering.
Rang twice in a couple of hours. Someone claiming to be from virgin media, asked me who I was then when I said they called me who are they they hung up on me, blocked them now.
Mob rang did not answer checked who called me and like everyone else blocked number when I get land line calls with usual ‘your computer / mob / microwave needs upgrade I tell them ‘just a moment while I switch my phone tracker on they hang up or if they ask ‘is that mr .......... I say hang on i’ll get him then leave the phone by the tv that really pisses them off or another answer is ‘sorry you want the man next door ‘ then hang up
Same problem calls starting with 0800 on landline too - calls to mobile started on Tuesday from +800136404 3 calls on Wed, one at 8 oclock in evening. 3 calls Thurs and again this mornning will block after seeing these comments. Got voicemail alerts but no messages left, however I've been told by manager of Post Office recently that legitimate businesses are not allowed to call and leave mesages unless they've had your permission to do so. Originally thought it was related to an outgoing call I made on Monday given the strange number but obviously not - very annoying!
Received a call from this number.The caller did not claim to be from Virgin Media.His accent sounded like he was from India.He immediately went into a tirade about saying how he was "never going to stay with her and that he was finishing it and breaking up with her". Then the line went dead...Sounds like a scam to me. Probably thinking I would call back and say he rang the wrong number..I'd get charged for the call...I don't know what would have happened..It seemed really dodgy to me though..That's why I came straight on to here.
Very odd
I have had a missed call from this number on my mobile and landline. I never ever give my land line number to anyone so I do wonder where they got my number from, must be something to do with VM!
Calling non stop, 6 times in one day! Have not answered.
I got a new sim from virgin as they said they were upgrading them and I had to replace it. I put it in my phone last week. From that moment I am getting called between 8-10 times every day. I've blocked the number but my phone still texts me to say they have called. Theres too many VM customers on this forum for this to be a coincidence!
Seemingly this is a genuine Virgin Media number as I checked. However, I would advise hanging up and phoning virginmedia direct from your own account. The reason being is that virginmedia should have some form of identity verification procedure in place so you know it's really they who is calling - they should be aware that scammers phone residency and mobile numbers regularly and it's simply not wise for any recipient to give out personal information without being assured of the callers identity.
Received a call (which I missed) googled to see who called Me ? I wont call number back or even try It via landline ... as Im not interested in unknown numbers that call Me! If Its a scam ... can I ask the provider where they got my number ... as Im not with THAT provider, so why would U be contacting Me ??? Basically DO NOT CALL AGAIN!!! Ive had too many "unknown" calls or texts that are scam and if it comes to It ... I will involve the POLICE Thank U and good day!
Never had calls like this before. Funny how I just recently signed up to VirginMedia I start getting these calls "about my virginmedia account", when clearly they are not from virgin. It was Indian in a call centre of sorts. I seem to remember calling virgin media's preinstallation team to cancel my virginmedia before the contract started. They were an Indian call centre too! I think someone is leaking our details from the virgin call centre in India. They can't be trusted with anything! Give us back the British call centres!
lucky that i missed the call!
This is my second "comment" !!!!!!!!! First comment uploaded on 02/02/17 .... WILL VIRGIN MEDIA (The So Called Company/Agents) STOP CALLING ME !!!!!!!!! Im Pissed Off and will now be in contact via POLICE !!!!!!!!!
Annoying missed call no message
CAN VIRGIN MEDIA STOP!!!! CALLING A "CUSTOMER" WHO IS ON BT ... THAT CUSTOMER IS NOT INTERESTED ... THINK I'LL STOP USING A MOBILE !!!!!!!!! IM VERY ANGRY !!!!!!!!! THE SO-CALLED POLICE WILL NOW BE INVOLVED AND CALL YOU ON ABOVE NUMBER !!!!!!!!!
No need to SHOUT.
twice daily for days, no message pure harrassment
This is a genuine Virgin Media Sales Team number, call centre is based in Philippines. I've had 14 calls from them in 3 weeks I am a Virgin customer and all they do is try to get you on a higher package. It's seriously annoying. I just ignore them now.
virgin media called. All those paranoid people thinking its a scam as they can't give out details need to read the Data Protection Act. Once you have confirmed your identity they can discuss your account. I am glad they wouldn't give out information before they know they are speaking to the account holder. if you want to be sure who you are speaking to you can always call them back on a number you know belongs to Virgin and asked to be put through. on the down side, they are rather persistent in calling until you answer the phone.
If you receive a call from this number and they claim to be virgin media DO NOT give them any information it's a scam! Just ask them to call you back on your virgin media land line number and they will hang up. I rang virgin myself and asked them what contact numbers they had for me and they do not have my mobile number, I explained about the call I had received and they lady told me it was probably a scam call.
Claimed to be Virgin Media - Wanted information and to sell a telecoms package.
They asked for my address details I said I don't give any details on the phone She hung up straight away
It is a scam. Do not give out any information. If you ring back to that number - you can't be connected with a person at all.
It's virgin media! Glad I answered the call got the best package ever! 12 months free tivo box with one highest packages and then recently upgraded to everything for £8 a month!
I rang Virgin Media because I had several calls from this number. They told me that this number is not their's!
Claimed to be Virgin Media - asked for confirmation of address and post code! When I said I don't give iut that information to incoming calls, she spoke very abruptly ( almost rude ) and hung up!
Please report scam callers to the ICO. Scammers do not care if you post here; they DO worry when they are reported to the ICO, which takes 2 minutes or less on their sites. Your phone company don't care as they get to sell you caller ID and increase their revenue for call blocking.
this number rings my mobile 2 &3 times a day, when my son answered they told him it was virgin media then when he asked for proof and to ring back on the landline they just hang up.
Claimed to be from Virginia media. Said i was selected for a discount. Wanted my address and date of birth to verify who I was.I said tell me my monthly bill amount so I know your from virgin media. He was unable to do that. He tried to persuade me a few times.I then hung up.
Virginal media trying to offer exclusive upgrades to your service
Seems like a scam
When i asked his name he said ivor bolokoff. I replyed that sounds serious mate.phone for ambulance.lively.!!!!!!!
I have been getting calls from this number 3 or 4 times a day for the last 6 days. No one speaks when I say hello so I hang up. Its annoying
Ring me several times a day,no one speaks,annoying
"Virgin Media" calling about discounts - she wanted to verify account details and asked for my postcode - I said "you called me so you tell me what you have and I will verify it", which she did and it was correct - she then asked me 1st line of address, to which I responded like the previous question and the line went dead. Number now blocked.
said she was from virgin media something about better services I could get said all calls being recorded for training purposes asked for postcode and first line of address which I gave her (silly me ) then asked me to wait a moment appeared to be shuffling papers then said she would have to ring me back as they were updating services call ended obviously was not virgin media as Number did not match take care don't give details
Complete pest.
Virgin media called my mobile to offer me a free six month trial of Sky Cinema with no strings attached. However, I later discovered I was actually being charged half price. According to customer services the call was from their telesales team and I've managed to get my trial cancelled and the charges refunded. So, I'm marking this as neutral. Genuine Virgin Media but with mis-selling.
Richard Branson called me using this number
Over 50 calls from this no. since Mid January, 4 today. Keep calling I'll just keep auto blocking..
I've just called Virgin Media customer services ( the number is one of theirs) as absolutely fed up with receiving calls continually from this number day and night for the last couple of weeks. After going through various depts I've got my mobile number removed from Virgin Media's 'Offshore Sales Team' list, I was told it will take 24/48 hours to take effect and that I should receive no more calls or emails. Watch this space
I blocked the number but the logs show 10 calls per week for the last 3 weeks. Today I got a voicemail instead - but it was emoty.
I wish they would leave me alone whoever they are. These calls are dead annoying. I get them in phases. I go abroad and get none, then as soon as I top up my virgin pay as you go, the calls start again twice a day. I never answer.

Annoying, waste of time
This number is calling me daily. I had no idea who they were. No message is left. It only rings a few times. Very annoying
Twice daily calls ! Some quite late in the evening . It's Virgin Media sales team overseas. Rang customer service and asked for my contract to be ended as it was the only way I could think of stopping them. They were very apologetic and asked me to wait a few minutes as they could delete me from this (in their words-other list !).Have been told it takes 24 hrs to take effect. Fingers crossed!
Several calls per week, only answered once never again.VirginMedia (overseas?) sales trying to get me to convert from pay-as-you-go to a contract, when I ask to see the terms and conditions on the website they said the offer was only available if agreed there and then on the phone. a contract implies that you are made aware of the terms and conditions prior to agreeing to anything! what a scam......
Update on post of 13/6/2017. Only one call received after they agreed to remove number from"overseas list" ! Hopefully this will continue ?
Get a call from them nearly every day or a blank message to voicemail. This time I spoke to them and demanded that they remove my number from database. Lets see if it works!!!!
Update of 17/6:2017 ! Calls had started again after a brief respite. I again rang to complain and was told it takes ip to 40 days for list to be updated. Rep checked action had been taken !!!!! and said I should get no more calls after July 1st.
Annoyingly blank voicemails over 10 on the last several days. Number blocked
Also receiving numerous calls, not allowed to use our mobile at work so they are very demanding to get through. I can only think as I've had Virgin mobile pay as you go in the past these calls are related- not sure how they've got my new number as I'm on O2 contract now
Getting numerous calls from this number - Download Call Control - Call Blocker for Android to block it entirely.
blocked number but have 9 voicemails left in 5 days,
Nobody there but they managed to leave blank message
VM call re price increase due November 2017. Took out a contract in 2016 with GUARANTEED FIXED CONTRACT PRICE. Still have 6 months to run before contract is increased legitimately. WTF are they playing at? No respect shown.
Marking as neutral as it is genuinely Virgin Media sales department - Virgin have confirmed it - but they do call a lot and are usually trying to get you to take extra servicrs. At they moment they're calling to tell customers about the enormous price hike that's coming up. There's much better info about the price hike on Money Saving Expert website as the people calling don't seem to know much, or are lying about it.
call received - person said the were from virgin media and because I was a valued customer they wanted to talk to me about my account on some offers , they asked me for my first line of address and postcode , I said I was a bit suspicious and they hung up instantly. take what you want from that but id say someone is at it !
going to upgrade my Virgin Media account. (that will be a "first". Asking for my security info. I asked them to tell me my email address and my password. They refused because they said "data protection" etc. I said that is why I am NOT telling you. I have reported it to Virgin Media.
Claimed to be Virgin Media offering an upgrade to a new box as I am a long term customer, I have had this account less than a year so how is this long term? I guess VM customers are disgruntled with their customer services and so anything over 3 months is long term? they asked for my address, I told them I can not give it as I can not verify they are who they say they are, they replied if that's that case they can not continue with the call, to which I replied that only verifies my suspicion and then I hung up on them, I would expect if its genuine they would have pontificated a reliable verification source but nope
very persistent
Called me today and said i could have a new box, i ask why and i could not understand her reply, she ask me for my address, i said if you are VM you should know it, she replied i have to ask to make sure i am talking to the right person, i then ask her for my VM account number, she could not give it so i hung up on her and blocked the number on my mobile, The land line then rang, i did not answer and i then did 1471 the number was withheld. i a sure it was a scam. Forgot to say on answering my phone she ask for me by name, and just replied who is calling, so i did not give her any information at all.
Don't know how many times this number has called my mobile over the last few weeks, have been ignoring it and hsve not answered. They are very persistent.
I have blocked this number so my phone no longer rings but, it always goes to voicemail. They never leave a message. Currently getting about 5 calls a day - 2 in the morning, one at lunch, early eve and the last around 8pm. Driving me nuts!!!!
Claimed to be from VMedia said they were offering account holders disc., asking for passwords to verify data protection, I said you rang me etc ., I got suspicious when they said, to convince me I was with VM since such a Date - which was wrong........ Deff a SCAM As I contacted VM and no one had been in Account today, MOST Convincing call I've ever had ever BE WARY
wankers
Claimed to be Virgin Media but was some low life scammer
Just asked them for a new router they said 40 pound I said f...k o,.. And hung up!!! What a scam? 08001836404 that number
called at least 5 times today they just wont give up I wont answer them especially since reading these comments
These are scammers.
Several calls over the past week. Now blocked
I have just receiveda call from this number offering free VM equipment upgrade. I went along with it but then had doubts afterwards so called VM but they validated details of date booked so it seems ok. Clearly VM need to make it easier to validate cold callers
Claimed to be from Virgin Media offering me a free upgrade, I said email me you must have my email address, she said something about UK data protection laws. I said I would go on my VM account and check out upgrade and contact them but she said it is only a special offer for special customers and only free over the phone. I told her I was not interested. Defo a scam
I had a call this evening from someone claiming to be virgin media, they offered me a free upgrade from my current TiVo box........they just asked me for my address and post code to match the system, they then gave me a delivery date. Once I put the phone down I was slightly concerned it may have been a scam so I rung virgin straight away and they confirmed everything!!! happy it was Leget :)
I've had 4 calls from this number today, 12 in the last 5 days - they sure are persistent! I simply don't answer calls that are not in my contact list. It may well be Virgin Media offering me a free upgrade, but unless they can be arsed to write to me in person, they can f**k right off!
They are also using 08001836408. I've had calls on my mobile (which is with O2) offering upgrades from Virgin Media. Told the Indian woman I deal face to face with the local store.
Calls on a regular basis i will not answer unknown numbers,if it is legit why won't they leave a message and a contact number?very frustrating.
This number rang my mobile several times today. I will not answer as I don't know the source. It's a bit concerning that VM are telling some people that the number is genuine. If they want to give us upgrades they should contact directly with valid procedures for customers to be sure who they are.
Said they were VM and asked for first line of address and post code I refused and said send me an email, if it was VM they should know my email address, don't expect to get an email.
Continually spaming my phone 3 to 4 times a day, now been going on for weeks on end....
Been getting several calls from this no on my mobile which I ignored however I answered Home phone last night not realising who it was. This is a genuine virgin media no called to upgrade me to new v6 box. They asked me for postcode & first line of address I advised that I wasn’t comfortable giving info however woman said she could confirm my package details & monthly bill which was correct. New v6 box on its way & have received emails & texts to confirm this
Had the same number call me a few times over the past few months. Answered it today and the guy on the end of the phone was barely able to communicate in English. The upshot is they were offering to send me a free V6 box to replace my old Tivo which is apparently being taken out of service. So the box and delivery is free.....I have to set the box up.....then VM charge me twenty quid on my next bill for activation.....No thanks, I'll wait until VM decide to kill my Tivo and then I stop the direct debit.
I have been a customer o vm for 18 years ,if they can't be bother to contact in the normal way then I must cancel my account
This was Virgin Media - glad i did answer as I've now got the new V6 box for free and got to keep my old one too. I will add that they are quite dogged
Received a couple of missed calls from this number today. I refuse to answer any calls from unknown numbers and now it is blocked. I do not know where they have got my number from because I have not had any dealings with Virgin Media, if that is who they are.
I am repeatedly getting calls from this number which I don't answer. I phoned VM who confirmed it is the sales team. It was put to me if you are not having any issues with the current box, there is no need to upgrade. So I will continue to ignore the calls. Also I received an email today saying my account details have expired and the service would be discontinued unless I updated via the link. VM confirmed this is a scam and should be deleted.
Call repeatedly. So annoying also as they leave a voicemail but don't say anything. Block!!
Called me on my mobile. When I answered call - silence. just hung up.
Same here....08001836409.I informed them I work in UK and EU DP/GDPR and that by asking me for my postcode and address when calling randomly from overseas was not gonna fly. Someone needs to tell VM...its customers will not but into his crap way of seeking to up sell. durrrrrrrrrrrrr
Repeated calls to my mobile. I have told them twice I am not interested and to remove me from the list. They continue to call two to three times a day from an overseas call centre. Telling me they can save me money by finally telling me that I have to pay more to save money.
Said was from VM asked for post code and first line of my address, I said if you were from VM you would know it so told him I'd didn't believe he was from VM AND HUNG UP!
Person called, stating they were from Virgin media. I said I am happy to talk but not right now so I would like to take their number & call back. She said mild stressed as she pretended not to hear multiple times and stated she would call me. I told her if she can not identify herself and she is genuine she will have other numbers on file for me. She said no problem I will call them. I contacted Virgin & they said that is not a sales call from them. Not genuine.
I did not engage in conversation with him, told him not to phone my mobile any more as I use it only for family and friends. In my opinion all unsolicited calls are a nuisance and could never be classed as neutral, especially when they ring again.
Not sure who they are, only time I answered they hung-up. Other times they've hung-up before I answered or it has gone to voice mail and they've left 'keyboard noises' as their call They have called my mobile 11 times over last 10 days
Vmedia constantly. if you try to complain they block the number and will not accept.b pain
Virgin Media - very persistent and always at the wrong time of day
Always ringing up .
Keep getting a call from this number but when I respond, there is never anyone there. It's hugely annoying!
Constantly calling 4_5 times a day
Fuck off
TOSSPOTS thats who they are do not answer
left voicemail but on listening no message just background noises
Have called at least three times to my non-Virgin mobile number. Always foreign accent, talking about being from Virgin Media with a new customer offer. They only know my name, ask me questions about my account and services. I say, you should know that, what is my account number? Never able to tell me my address or account, so I just told them that I can't verify they are who they say. Latest woman called simply said "But I've told you, I'm from Virgin Media with a legitimate offer!". It seems that they probably are connected with VM, but all they are tasked with doing is trying to cold sell you additional services. Bad form VM, very bad form indeed. Blocked.
Constant calling - received more than 10 calls over past 5 days. Leave silent voicemails
used to call every week, then stopped. now started up again. vg sales
Frequent unsolicited calls. Blocked
QQ I am a virgin customer and don't take kindly to being called time after time it's unsolicited and wish it would stop I have never given virgin permission to share my number so please get it sorted
Called me last week a few times, yesterday and today leaves silent message, its getting on my bloody nerves
Called a few minutes ago. Could hear background noise but no speech and then they hung up. Highly suspicious.
This number has been calling me at least once a day for the last week! Highly annoying
As other callers, silent. If Virgin Media are connected with this they should be fined heavily and have their licence revoked by Ofcom
Lady with foreign accent called my wife’s mobile (not even listed with VM) offering a great deal ?!? She asked for my address to which I refused. I asked why she hadn’t called on my vm landline. She said she would call me back from the vm line! Surprise surprise! No call....

I've blocked the number but my phone still texts me to say they have called. Theres too many VM customers on this forum for this to be a coincidence!
Called me 15 times in past few days, I just ignore when I see the number, but blocking on my phone doesn't work for this, they still get through, surely must be Virgin Media my service provider who can presumably get around the block.
I took a call from this number today. She said she was from Virgin Media and tried to sell me an upgrade to my present account, in particular their sports and film channels, which I refused. Reception on my house phone was not good, and I asked her from where she was calling, and it sounded like the Philippines.
VIRGIN MEDEA. KEEP HARRASING ME WITH PHONE CALLS
Presume it was virgin trying to upgrade me as usual. I accepted the call by did not speak first. The call was ended by them, due to me not responding? Presume it was an auto-dialup looking for an answer then you get transferred to a call desk.
have had this call over a few times a day for the past week. so this time I answered it.. a lady saying she was from virgin asking me for personal details before telling about an 'upgraded' when I asked what she meant by 'upgrade' she just said she'll end call there..
Virgin media even after speaking to them. They keep calling, its becoming annoying and stressful
Called 12 times in 2 days. Saying from Virgin Media. Said they could upgrade my package. Asked what they had on offer. They then asked for my address and what package I had. Before I even thought about handing over that info I asked them, how do I know your from VM. Every time they hang up after that. Suspicious to me.
Have added to my blacklist on phone and am getting notifications daily that multiple calls are being made. This despite telling them on their initial call I had no interest. I have a full package of TV Phone and Broadband already so this intrusion is really an annoyance.
said they were from virgin - knew how long I was with them and the services I had - then just hung up!
I have had several calls a day from this number in the past week on my mobile phone not landline .We are virgin customers but I have never answered. unfortunately unable to block.Really annoying they call all times of day and evening but I will never answer so hopefully in the end they will give up! If it really was Virgin I'm sure they would contact another way.
Nuisance sales call
Constant sales calls, at the very least x3 a day, morning. afternoon and late evening, getting tiresome!
Pain fed up with it stopped for a while now started again at least three calls a day just don't answer but is definitely a nuisance
Several calls a day although number has been blocked from calls still getting through. Tired of this.
pain in the bum
I am getting totally fed up of unknown callers. I have blocked this call already and they appear to be so arrogant and persistent that they do not get the hint that I do not want to speak to them. I just wish they would stop harassing me
3 times yesterday pissed off I certainly am
sick of this number calling twice a day everyday, I don't answer hoping they will get the message I am not interested in speaking to them, virgin I believe. Something should be done to stop this kind of harassment.
02007779157
0800 183 #### various
8 calls over 7 days
I answered the call and the guy on the other line said he was from virgin media and that he needed to do a service update... then he asked me to confirm my postcode for security purposes. I told him I wasn't comfortable in giving my personal details and if they were virgin media then they shouldn't be asking me like that. He then tried to explain the services and I told him it doesn't matter as in November I'm leaving virgin anyway because they gave us bad service in April so I don't want any updates thanks and he hung up????
Virgin Media call centre from India. Offered to upgrade our digibox to latest V6. Asked for my ID: zip code and 1st line of address. Delivery will arrive on Fri he said. No additional charges for VM for having new box. I have been with VM 1 year now.
More mithering bollox
nuisance all day
I got a call from this number which I answered. I heard what I think was an Asian lady and the word "mobile". It was a bad line and noisy in the background. I thought it was dodgy and hung up straightaway. It has then rung me on another 3 occasions that I know of! If it goes to Voicemail, they don't say anything, but it registers enough to be told you have Voicemail. I cannot find how to block, but in the meantime I have opted for my phone to Auto Reject this number if it calls.
Keeps calling me over 10 times in less than a week.
very annoying umpteen times a day.
They rang my dad and said they were virgin media . They wanted my dad's private information . We said he didn't know who they were and they hanged up
phone rings nobody there
pesky calls
Virgin media sales team???
virgin media unsolicited
virgin media
Kept phoning me everyday. I was always busy when they called but they never left a message. Over a week of this and I was eventually in a position to answer the call. It was virgin media, English clearly was not his first language. I asked if he had been trying to get through to me for a week, he said yes, I said you do know if a random number calls and doesn’t leave a voice mail it’s very rude.... He hung up.
spam call Virgin media spoof
Wanted to speak to me about my Virgin account & to see if I was getting the best deal. They asked me to confirm who I was by giving them my details. I asked them to confirm they were from Virgin before I gave out any details & asked them to tell me half of my post code, he said (in pigeon English) he would call back when he could hear me better....
