Re: More Rubbish From The Scammers

Just had an Email from from this address:

Virgin Media <info@matizsae.com.py

Disconnection date: 12th May
Dear *correct name*@ntlworld.com,

We want to inform you that your Direct Debit payment failed, due to our payment processor detecting invalid account information.

Your service will be discconect on 12th May.

Just visit your My Virgin Media by clicking the button below, and fill in your most recent information to avoid interruption of your service.

Visit My Virgin Media

Should you need to get in contact with us either online or over the phone, you'll need these details:

account number: *wrong* area reference: *wrong*

Kind regards,

The Virgin Media team


Trying hard but the format and layout show noticeable differences when compared to genuine Emails

. . . no buttons pressed


EDIT seems I'm not the only one . . . second post here is the same

Re: More Rubbish From The Scammers

Those whose details were made available to scammers because of the Virgin Media data breach need to take extra care because some of the details will be correct and may lull them into a false sense of security.

Re: More Rubbish From The Scammers

You should always take care, there are data breaches everyday, the VM issue was a very small drop in the ocean.

Re: More Rubbish From The Scammers

Yes - AMAZON PRIME - has returned, renewing my Prime at a fraction of the actual cost, then wife got call about £hundreds charge to our Visa card. We know that's not true and even if it was we don't get calls like that.

Re: More Rubbish From The Scammers

If you think you may have been part of a data breach you can use the HIBP data base search. https://www.fasterbroadband.co.uk/to...-breach-search

Your TV Licence will expire !!! You must renew it now, or additional fees will be applied.

We're sorry to let you know that the TV Licence could not be automatically renewed.

Something went wrong with your Direct Debit payment.



Start



Because you didn't keep up with your payments, you risk to become unlicensed.

You can update your licence quickly and easily at tvlicensing.co.uk/update-direct

Please take care of this straight away or we may be forced to pass your details to a debt collection agency.

Please keep this email safe, because it tells you how to access your licence online.
Please Set up a new Direct Debit now

Remember, you need to let us know if your personal information changes or switch to another bank.
