I had several Virgin Media scam calls about a year ago, quite convincing. After telling them I didn't want any extra services at bargain prices they started asking for my password, so obviously a scam. Maybe from the Philippines. Now in the last week they have been calling several times a day using different 0800 numbers. 0800 408 9340 0800 952 2049 0800 183 6416
