Scam Virgin email

I got this email in this morning purporting to be from Virgin:



Pathetic attempt as the source wasn't even obfuscated ( giejem@mailing.com ) Placed here for scraping bots.

The dodgy link wasn' even disguised either, normally they use something like viginmedia.com.else. This was in the Dominican Republic. (.do)

Anyway a heads up probably for any members with @virgin.net addys.

Re: Scam Virgin email

Thanks heero

I hate these scam emails plus callers last week I received a call from a Edinburgh area code (0131) saying that they were from BT and my payment had not been received, they hung up when I said I don't have anything BT.

When I tried dialing the number it was a dead line, I do not know how they do it

Re: Scam Virgin email

I have no idea where I'm going wrong, I haven't had spam email for years

Re: Scam Virgin email

TBQH this is the first I've had for a long time. I guess most of it gets trapped at VM's boarders before it gets to us.

Re: Scam Virgin email

I had one from Nat West Bank yesterday stating that there has been some unusual activity on your account... I do not bank with them...
