Working in a factory. Chinese female speaking in mandarin.
I don't know who keeps calling but I've had a number of missed calls
Calls several times a day, but doesn't leave a message.
480-565-7237 did not know the number so I purposely rejected it then blocked my number and called it back. it was a "recording" saying that the survey I was chosen for has currently ended. Funny how a survey can end 2 minutes later from when their call came through. SCAM SCAM. I blocked their number from my phone... So much for the do not call registry, eh?
Received call from this number.
a caller from ATO, asking for money
Keep getting missed calls on landline and mobile, when I try to ring back I'm cut off.
Call on my mobile phone which hung up when I picked it up. I called it back: it said busy try another time. I am already on Virgin telephone, broadband and cable television so I have no idea what else they want to sell me. Being an OAP I cannot afford to buy anything else. When I asked them about telephones they told me they did not sell them and I should get my own, which I did. I am more concerned to have the piano tuner round to tune my 2 grand pianos but I suspect he is still on his Indian Yoga Holiday, if he ever comes back to England. I therefore have other things to pay for.
This number has called me every 1/2 hr since 1pm. Luckily I have block calls on my phone so don't know or care who it is. If they want me they can send it by post to be shredded.
Apparently virgin media Keep calling my my mobile I'm not even a virgin media customer and can't get virgin media in my area!! Have blocked..
This number has been calling my mobile every day for the past three days, I haven't answered the call just rejected it as I don't know the number.
Virgin media sales
Called by this number twice today 230518 purporting to be from Virgin Media. Caller had strong overseas accent, very hard to understand, wanted to carry out a rewire! Said no thanks and ended call, contacted V.M. who confirmed that this call was very likely a scam.
They claim to be Lisa from Virgin Media (Asian accent). They have called me every single day since May 1st (if not before). The stupid thing is that we are stuck in a loop where I tell them that now is not a good time because I am working and I ask them to call me later at 8pm. They say OK, but then they call me the next day in the morning again. This has been happening every single day since May 1st. So id**tic. The same person is calling me from another number too: 08004089340.
Keeps calling me during the day, very annoying while I'm at work.
Called my mobile, no message left just silence!!!
Rang my mobile silent call.
I phoned this number back as they kept calling me... it said it was from virgin media....tortures....
Annoying no messages left..
Keep phoning me on a landline number when I pick up no one talks just silence for a few seconds then hang up , Knobs come on virgin get it sorted ......
Some how got my landline number when picked up it went dead no message left on mobile so scam
Was contacted about an early upgrade from a female with an asian accent.wanted all my details including bank details.I said i dont reveal this info by phone,if i want an upgrade i will call in the nearest shop where they will have the relevent info.
Ringing late at night they are scammers
Virgin Media trying to sell me more services. Very persistent sales person, despite telling them I wasn't interested.
Number keeps calling me every weekday afternoon between 1 and 3pm. I have a Virgin Mobile on contract so thanks to the comments above I'm now aware it's them. I know what it's about they want me to upgrade my current Galaxy S6 to an newer model so they can get more dosh out of me. It;'s not gonna happen my phone does what I need it to do and I don't want to upgrade. They can keep calling I'll keep ignoring... It;'s their time they're wasting not mine. hahahahahahaha..
Trying to spend the remainder of my time off from work and the phone has rang eight times today wow persistent or what . I don't want to speak to virgin I'm happy with the package I've got
Recently become a Virgin Media customer 2 months ago. Just had a call from this number asking me to confirm my address by an Asian lady. Asked her to confirm some of my details before i confirm the rest of which she prompty hung up. Usual BS cold caller.
Its Virgin promotions/upgrade call this Virgin number 08001831150 and the promotions number will be blocked
rings then hangs up
This number called me twice today offering new deal on Virgin Media had foreign accent .Thought was scam told them not interested.
I had this and other numbers calling me daily i was fed up with them all, then one caller said my middle name first. Which i never use but for some unknown reason i had used it. Thats when i realised I had filled in the form on Facebook about some offers and freebies.
Just phoned virgin media and they confirmed that the number 0800 183 6408 is virgin and there are a sales team that lets you know about upgrades in your area I asked them to be taken of there call list
Called today about my Internet package. However I'm on the biggest available, so they wouldn't be able to upgrade. They wouldn't confirm any detail when I asked "How do I know your genuine" they just kept asking to confirm details. I think scam.
Been harassed all week by two numbers 08001836408 & 0800 408 9340 VM while I'm at work & telling them I'm working, they carried on talking, I put the phone down! job done!
Virgin media have confirmed this number is their own marketing on their forums. I received a call but did not answer. Voicemail said it was Virgin (which promptede to look it up), but considering my mobile is in my husband's name, is not part of Virgin Media, and has NOTHING to do with my Virgin Media account whatsoever, it's still pretty dodgy to me that they would ever have a way of calling it!
I was called by this number today but i didn't pick up the phone, I phoned the number back and it was an automated reply from Virgin media saying they had tried to contact me, said they would call back....mmmm not sure.
Virgin Media sales call. BLOCKED.
9 calls in the last 8 days from this number (2 today... so far). I haven't picked up any of them and still they haven't got the message! Glad I checked the number out on here, as I am expecting new Virgin kit tomorrow and might otherwise have been sucked into what looks like a scam.
This number is Virgin Media, trying to sell you an upgrade,
Be Aware they are also using 0800 183 6403 & 6404. Received a call today on my mobile, didn't answer so went straight to voicemail. When checked it was a silent 'message'. All numbers now BLOCKED. To All, Please Don't Ever Give Out Or Confirm Any Of Your Personal Infomation No Matter What Company They Claim To Be Calling From. Ask To Speak To Their Manager And They'll Soon Hang Up!!!!
Don't know. Phone regularly but i have never answered. Now that I know it's Virgin media I shall just reject the call immediately
Calling my mobile 3 or 4 times a week. Have never answered but they still call
I am losing the will to live!!! 28 calls so far over a two month period. 20 times said to them that I did not want any further call. These people belong in the gutter. Shame on you Mr Branson.
This is a genuine virgin media number and call is from their sales team. I took the call 25/07/17 and I am getting a free upgrade of my box and broadband. This was followed up with a legitimate email from them confirming all details, free install and changes to package. The caller addressed me by full first name and I only had to confirm 1st line of address for security purposes. I was suspicious at 1st as it wasn't a great line and it was obvious call from overseas but on this occassion it was worthwhile taking the call!
If I get one more call I'm going to end all of my dealings with Virgin Media. Phone, TV, banking the lot. Maybe Mr Branson will take note then, if he has no customers at all.
Called several times. Don’t leave a message just empty recording. I don’t want to be be phoned early mornings or Sunday evenings.
This number Keeps ringing my land line,asking me for bank details claiming to be VM I was rude to her,then a screaming woman bellowing some sh**,it rings now but nobody speaks..!now ringing my mobile so I've blocked it.... VM you need nice polite staff, my contracts ending soon which is brilliant????
Nobody speaks then they hang up
Just got a call from this number. No one responded when I answered and they hung up after 5 seconds.
Definitely a scam, confirmed with Virgin Media as legitimate account holders. I strung the caller along, eventually she confirmed they would have to go into "every room in our house" to allegedly check and upgrade the broadband signal. DO NOT LET THIS SCAM HAVE YOUR ADDRESS DETAILS! I feel sorry for the entry of 26th July who really believe they will get this mythical upgrade, more likely to be robbed......
Not useful but how do I stop at least 6calls per day.Currently someone very ill in this house and rush to answer as maybe doctor or hospital.Help!
Ignored call, now blocked
for the last 3 days this number has called me at least twice a day. lucky i have a loud answering machine and i only pick up if someone i know starts to leave a message. this number phones unacceptable times ie. 7am 10pm
Definitely Virgin Media but it is their sales team. So treat it the same way you would someone standing in the high road with a clipboard.
Calls daily,I never answer , it goes to my v/mail where they ask for my husband by name and say they are calling from Virgin Media. As we are Virgin customers, my husband is the account holder I rang Virgin to complain of calls on MY ( non Virgin) mobile and the many v/mails as a result and was told this number is NOT from their sales team and I should block it and enrol with the TPS..BUT then I used Reverse Look up ' just to checkand it comes back as a UK landline number belonging to ...wait for it...VIRGIN SALES and the operator is.....VIRGIN MEDIA...so I called the number and got a message saying I had called Virgin media Sales and they had tried to call but not to worry as they will call again.....Oh....NOOO!! Number now Blocked
Called today as what seems like a series of nuisance callers. No one spoke & then hung up.
Rings and when picked up no-one is on the other end!
Keep getting called by this number but it is always silent when I answer.
chinky called and said from virgin media so i said f**k off
Have received a number of calls during the last two days from this number (in each case the caller was difficult to understand) starting by asking for security info which I declined to give. If this is Virgin Media they don't appear to pass info to one another.
had an 08001836408 call me twice on my mobile, as i have AVG installed and i use the free option, i can block any number, both mobile and landline for free with this service, all you get is a missed call on your mobile, i dont use voicemail so no issues there.
I rang virgin media after getting a call from a Chinese sounding lady from the 08001836408. They reassusered me it was a scam and they were going to look into what was happening. Urged us to ring if them ring back at any time.
So far 5 calls from this Number today. Getting very fed up.
9 calls in the last 8 days from this number (2 today, so far). I haven't picked up any of them and still they haven't got the message! Glad I checked the number out on here, as I am expecting new Virgin kit tomorrow and might otherwise have been sucked into what looks like a scam.
Shows scam or fraud on incoming call
they say its virgin media but how do we know for sure. Sales call? ask them to write if they know my address lets see what happens now
Said it was virgin media asked for my name and address. Told them they should know it if they're calling me so asked him for his name and address, he didn't seem amused so I cut him off????
This number is ringing me 3 times a day... everytime i pick it up nobody ever answers. I have had a month to month SIM card from Virgin for a cpl of months now so after reading other comments this is why!!
Keeps ringing me I have now blocked them are they scammers
Got called by 0800 183 6408 on Thursday 21st September 2017 at 11.11am, then 15.29pm, then 19.55pm; then today, 22nd September at 10.41am. Every time I picked up the phone, there was silence, so, after saying "Hello" twice I hung up. It must be an automated call centre. I'm fed up with this sort of call, day in, day out.
Virgin media about an upgrade
Pretending to be Virgin Media & trying to get your details for upgrade
This number has rang me several times over the past few days. I refuse to answer 0800 numbers.
Virgin Mobile - trying to push mobile upgrades.
Now blocked and changing my provider fed up of virgin media!
Blocked this number ages a go, I can see that they still try to call me at least 3 times a week
I put phone down when they asked me to confirm address and postcode
phoning up to 6 times a day now.i do not answer.
How can I stop it
Called by this number claiming to be VM and told it was regarding an upgrade on my phone. I don't have that kind of contract so hung up and blocked the number.
I answered the phone I could hear the person breathing but they didn't speak
Persistant calling 3 to 4 times a day will not take no for an answer Very frustrating especially when at work running clinics Can not turn my phone off as required for work
Had calls from above no. and also 08004089340 did not answer
Answer the phone , no one there, annoying
08001836408. A Chinese sounding accent with a very noisy background. Claimed to be from Virgin Media and wanted to arrange for an engineer to visit me to fit new V6-boxes. Odd timing as I had received a letter from Virgin Media only today on the same subkect! Agreed everything, including the day/time for the engineer to call, but put phone down when I was asked to provide my e-mail detail ('so that an acknowledgement could be sent to me') saying simply: You don't need my email, just do it!
Asian sounding woman claiming to be from virgin media I told her I didn't have time to talk but could she give me the customer service number and I could ring back in my own time. She told me this was not possible as virgin can only ring their customers not the other way round. When I told her that was rubbish she fobbed me off with the 150 number. I told her my landline did not work and I needed another customer service number she quickly got spooked and rushed me off the phone
called my mobile, left no msg
Scam pretending to be from O2
They are also using 0800 183 6404 for the same purpose.
Who would of believed it these people are actually are from Virgin Media my faith in humanity has been restored
Phoned today. Will be reporting as spam and blocking
Answered the work phone and caller asked to speak to the owner of the business or manager, was obviously in a loud call center, claimed there had been complaints about the cost of Gas and Electricity in the area and he could help! I told him the number was registered with TPS and to remove number but he carried on so I hung up!
Scam trying to get details about virgin media/mobile
These 'people' literally call every day! Then several times a week they leave a 'silent' message, which I then delete. Virgin know my details, so I do NOT need 'phantom' 0800 calls, which I do not answer! The Portable phone, is for my convenience, NOT as a Target, for everyone else's unsolicited calls!
a man claiming to represent virgin media keeps ringing my elderly mother on landline to sell her a new phone fortunately she told me about it and i told her to not give any further info he was requesting, as he was going to ring back to ask for a pin number to pay for the non existent phone as "virgin" had all her bank details. he now rings up to 5 times a day on landline and also my mams mobile now as she "confirmed" her virgin mobile number with him during the first call. this is actually criminal so cant the police do something to put a stop to it? My mam rang virgin media on the 150 who said he is legitimate and the deal sounded great and she should go for it, so they are just compounding the problem not stopping it, so they must be getting a cut from every person who gets conned.
I have been receiving calls from the number above since Monday of this week. After checking out the number on google I see lots of other people have been having the same problem. I've not answered the calls as I didn't recognise the number and they never left a voice mail. I am a virgin media customer but do not have my mobile with them. The calls have been constant for 3 whole days, extremely annoying and persistent. Now I know who the number belongs too I've now blocked it on my mobile.
Rings regularly- I refuse to answer. Either a scam or cold calling sales pitch. Not interested in either
This is a SCAM. Please do not give out any infomation, especially your personal details. I don't know how these people got my mobile number. In the first instance it was a text, then they called claiming to be from Virgin Mobile, waanting me to upgrade my contract. Their whole sales pitch was iffy. This number is now BLOCKED. PLEASE BEWARE, they also use 0800 183 6403.
I have had these phone calls on and off for about six month. there is also another number which was also a pain in the backside 08001836403 i was told this also was part of the Virgin group wanting you to change your phone but this one was more persistent phoning several times a day for weeks. i got a bit worried about it as i am sure a lot of people do.
They say they are Virgin Media - I have told them not to call me, but they still do.
Called virgin to enquire after reading this thread. IT IS NOT VIRGIN. This is a scam.
Claim to be from Virgin Media with a special upgrade offer. Knew my surname. Several identical calls in recent months (not sure if from the same number). Have always ended the calls as soon as they ask for any information.
Keep getting these calls about every two hours went on to TPT and registered this seems to have stopped it
I got a call from this number today as I don't know the number I always check it here. I then got a voicemail from the number but it was Blank. In total I got 5 calls and 3 blank voicemails from this number in 2hrs. In the end I picked up a phillipino woman started speaking, said she was from virgin media. I don't know how because they don't have my number. DONT PICK UP THERE CALLS BECAUSE THEY WONT STOP, BLOCK THIS NUMBER!!!
Called me twice this afternoon. An Asian lady claims to be from Virgin Media. I asked her for her telephone number and she said 150. My phone, TV and broadband are from Virgin. However, the Asian accent is quite difficult to deal with and the lady does ask to confirm personal details. They may well be Virgin Sales but they won't gain my attention with these type of calls and it won't be answered again.
They keep phoning I keep ignoring. Hope they will go away. I don't know where they have got my number from. They are an absolute nuisance. This practice of cold calling should be looked into and banned. Such a time waster!!
persistent daily phone calls claim to be from virgin media-ask name then hang up
Said from Virgin Media to review and see if I was getting the right package (I've recently reviewed and signed a new contract so pretty strange). Asked me to confirm my full address for security, I refused and they tried to talk me into it. When I refused a second time they hung up. No likely to be a Virgin Media caller hanging up on me.
V Media again.
Its Virgin media at it again, you call them to stop and they start all over again.
I rarely answer calls from unknown numbers and never from 0800 numbers. As has been noted elsewhere, if it is legitimate, they will leave a message. They never do. This number has become persistent over the past few days and is now blocked. I recommend others block it too.
Brian with a very heavy asian accent phoned to say he was from virgin media. as I have the full package don't now why they didn't phone land line.
Calling me multiple times every day recently. Really sick of them.
Always let my answerphone pick up calls now as fed up with people like this calling at all times of the day. They usually hang up once they get a recorded message. Best thing I ever done. Once they've hung up I dial 1471 to see who they are, which is why I'm telling you all about this call. Found out that you can only bar so many numbers.
They call 2/3 times a week sometimes it's silence or say it's VM Orwell them to get lost
This lot knew my number ,my name ,that I was due an upgrade and that I'm a virgin media customer.Rudely hung up on me when I said I wasn't interested in upgrading.I called Virgin media who said it's not them however they couldn't answer how they got my details to start with.Not a happy camper
keep calling Asian accent then a delay can hear some sort of recording device in the back ground also about job interview emails that ive not applied for
Virgin Media sales call from 0345 0700 707 - they've been calling every day... I phoned Virgin Media on 150 to ask to update my marketing preferences and be removed from sales call lists, they said they couldn't do it there & then and that I'd have to call their Telephone Preference Service number to do that, which is 0345 0700 707.
Basically Virgin Media offering to upgrade your package for 6 months for free, then after 6 months putting your bill up by say £15 a month if you want to continue. Been ignoring the call up to now but decided to answer. I told them I was not interested and if they continued to ring I would cancel the service. Having said that I had a similar conversation a few months back. They stopped for a while. Will just ignore the calls from now.
This number called after I received texts advising that they would call about my phone contract. My phone contract isn't up!? Not a legit number for Virgin.
I keep getting continuous phone calls from this number and have asked them to stop I'm so sick of it but they continue to harass me with even more calls.
Block this number. NOT Virgin Media, so up to something illegal
Had a call from them on my mobile claimimg to be from Virgin Media... I have reported the number to Virgin Media
Called but no one speaks
I believed it was virgin but couldn't understand him and he quite clearly didn't understand me when I tried to say my email address, repeatedly. Ended the call saying you already have my email.
Didn't answer as number not recognised. Checked this site first!! I am with VM so will wait to see if they call again to see how authentic they are.
Called by this number eleven times in the last week- if legit, why not leave a message?
I have a policy of not answering if I don't recognise the number. If it's a legitimate call, they'll leave a message. This one didn't.
I have had a few texts and voicemails from this number I'm not even on virgin so I know it's a scam!!
Indian accented lady saying she was from Virgin Media to offer me upgrades. Asked me to give details about my account to confirm my identity at which point I hung up and blocked the number
Getting this caller several times a day, number is blocked as it is scam.
scam asking for virgin media account details. this if affecting my privacy!. needs to stop.
Has rang my mobile several times day for weeks now. i do not answer it as i was as sure as i could be it was a scam. thank you for confirming this.
Continuous calls to voice mail. Do not listen to. Obviously an intensive campaign by Virgin Media doing nothing for their reputation.
They called my landline, he wanted all sorts of information as proof that I was me. I pointed out that HE had phoned ME so it should be HIM proving his identity. He said that he needed proof he was talking to me before he could tell me why he phoned. I told him that, as he had phoned me, and as this was a landline (installed inside my house) the only way someone else could answer was if I had a burgler - in which case I had more important problems to concern myself with then any sales patter he wanted to give me. I then pointed out that, I had managed quite well without this information up until yesterday and I will continue to manage tomorrow. He seemed confused and hung up in disgust.
Thanks for info I have now blocked
Virgin media off a dodger number. Called virgin and they confirmed someone had been in my account around the time of the call but couldn't confirm it was thier number who called me. Didn't give the caller any details and asked him to prove he was calling from virgin. He swiftly bid me a good day and hung up ha!
I would like to block this caller permanently. What do I have to do?
Virgin media have confirmed this number is their own marketing on their forums.
They keep calling, leave no message so I don't answer
I was called by this number several times. The only people that have my mobile number other than family are virgin media themselves. I think they could be selling virgin media customers numbers on. I have no other explanation, and they are always trying to sell virgin products.
This number has phoned me a couple of times, so I answered and was told it's virgin media and they want to upgrade my contract. They then asked for my name, address and back details. I refused to give it them until they told me what my password is! The phone then went dead lol its just a scam please don't give any details out!!
Left voicemail but just ignored.
Will not stop ringing me and leaving blank voice mails.How do I block them???
its a scam, why would virgin ask who supplied your broadband, suggest you ask them to phone your landline and give you the account number.
Two silent messages left on my mobile today. It costs me money to call my Voicemail and delete the messages. I have tried to block this caller, without success.
I am tots pissed off with this number calling me, If it is Virgin and I have Virgin pay as you go, they should respect me and leave me alone.
Just will not give up its virgin media why won't they go away. Getting right on my nerves Anyone know Remoaner Bransons number then I can keep ringing his number. Grrrrrr.
This nu be called my mobile today saying g they were from virgin asking me to upgrade my package and confine bank account number. When I asked who they were they Hung up. Virgin confirmed it wasn't them
Say they are from virgin media please give me our name and address. Someone from virgin media needs to get hold of this and apologise for awful sales technique or close them down as rogues. Which one is it? I expect virgin media will ignore and keep p*stering
Just answered a call to my mobile, no-one there but they didn't hang up, so I did after about 20 sec. My first from this number. Thanks for the warnings guys. Sounds like I may be in for more nuisance calls to fend off. Modern living, eh?
Poor/BAD use of private info. Virgin Media, if it is them, shold know better !!
If this is Virgin media, why call me 6 times in last week. I am a virgin customer, so surely they should be aware of this. These calls are nothing more than an intrusion on my time. I DO NOT ANSWER.
My hubby and I just received similtaineous calls on our mobiles from this number. We have mobile contracts with Virgin and also received text messages this morning regarding upgrading our phones. They have been told three times that we are not interested. Number blocked.
Just called by this number - lady with Asian accent, who said she was from Virgin Media. She knew my name, and asked to confirm the first line of my address and postcode for security purposes. The lady was trying to get me to use their mobile phone service, but I explained I hjardly ever use a mobile or even have it switched on. She gave up on me.
called twice answering machine cuts in and they ring off. hey ho
Answered call on my mobile, no-one there so I ended the call after 20 secs. Thanks for warnings guys..
same as above. claiming to be virgin. i have nothing but trouble with virgin and am looking forward to cancelling my contract. i didnt talk but they were very persistent, even when i played some nice death metal down the phone. now blocked.
So Called Virgin Media, but always sounding very foreign and far off. Very intrusive call - like a Market Research questionnaire. I have now blocked this caller Did not give them any details... I won't be answering their calls any more.... If it were a genuine Virgin call, surely it would come from VIRGIN UK call centre....
Called a few times and just silent when I answer I have now blocked the number
Claims to be virgin media but unsure, blocked after they asked to confirm my details.
Seems it is actually VM. Called virgin afterwards who confirmed the upgrade was genuine
Claim to be from Virgin Media. Say they are called Mike/Steve/Gary. Asian accent. I blocked number.
Dont know who called? Leaves no voice mail. Will block soon.
Knobs. They ring our house number, we don't answer and let it go to answerphone, they make some funny noises similar to a constipated cat then hang up. C'mon guys, give me a chance to pick up the phone and tell you what a bunch of annoying wankers you are.
Sick & tired of getting calls from this no. on my landline & mobile. I received a voicemail from them this morning (7.5.18) saying if I didn't listen to their previous voicemail it would be deleted - fabulous news to me ???? as no message left on previous voicemail & I can't delete it from my mobile. Complete 'pains in the posterior!' ????
Virgin Media called 5 times in the last 2 weeks to advise me that my new V6 box would be delivered by Thursday 28th.
is genuine but once you answer and say no they still phone you up I have far to many such calls so I don't pick up if they are genuine they will leave a message.
They rang a few times asking to upgrade cover then starting laughing strangely
Added to reject list thanx to comments here.
Called me claiming to be Virgin Media, knew my name and said it had some deals for me. Then asked me for my address and postcode and when I said I'd rather call Virgin myself told me that they were different department so it would be best for to stay on the line. I said that they called me and I couldn't verify if they were legit and so I won't give personal details. Still wouldn't let it go so I had to hang up. If it really was Virgin they would have understood.
This number has called 4 times today
silent for 5 seconds, then hung up
Ed up with this no calling me 080018365408
Scam call pretending to be Virgin Media - trying to get you to agree to their "expert engineer" visiting every room in your house.......block them and report them! I have confirmed this with Virgin as we're legitimate account holders, they are trying to make older and more vulnerable people aware of this scam.
A scammer posing as Virgin Media. Don't give them any details and if they tell you your own name and address, don't confirm or deny it.
Scam, pretending to be Virgin Media.
08001836408 called me said on behalf of virgin media rewards and survey want personal info first like confirming address i was the person on phone etc i declined this information they became aggressive i then hung up and blocked the number.
Didn't answer my mob ..they have rung b4 n didn't wanna listen when I refused an upgrade ..pests
HAVE STARTED TO GET THESE CALLS JUST DONT ANSWER
This lot knew my number ,my name ,that I was due an upgrade and that I'm a virgin media customer.Rudely hung up on me when I said I wasn't interested in upgrading.I called Virgin media who said it's not them however they couldn't answer how they got my details to start with.Not a happy camper
Didn't know the number so didn't answer.i suppose this will go on for weeks.if I want something I will ring them.
Got a text asking if I wanted to upgrade contract and get a new phone. Text said to text back the word NO to opt out from further contact to 80159. The day after I get a call from this freephone number, no voicemail left. Strange coincidence, I think not! Annoying, yes!
Scam try to obtain my address and other data ... want make an appointment to check signal at home.
I've been getting calls from this number every few days. Whoever it is doesn't leave a message, so I it must be a sales or scam call. My landline is ex-directory so I don't know where they got my number from. Thanks to everyone who's left comments about this number as I know it's one to ignore.
Not answered, checked with Google, surprise surprise it's a scam as I havent got a Virgin mobile
Fraudster has called me 3 days in a row. Blocked !
4 to 5 times a day I get calls from this number and it's beginning to piss me off I have put the number on my calls reject so it does not ring but they keep calling and leaving a message saying "hello" "hello" then hanging up!
I've had 3 calls from this number in the past week but no message left. I'm also with Virgin so after reading the other comments, it looks like whoever's calling has somehow got my number through them! I've previously told Virgin I don't want any sales calls, so either they're ignoring that instruction or this is a scam.
This number calls me most days. The caller says that they are from Virgin Media. Is this genuine or is it a spam call.
A real nuisance 3 or 4 times a day I get calls on my mobile and also 3 or 4 voice mail, been going these past week or so Female sounds sort of Chinese I have now blocked the calls but unable to block the voice mails! I have a Virgin media package but have a separate mobile phone / not with Virgin
This number calls me every day daytime and late evening so called virgin media blinding way to loose customers IT NEEDS TO STOP
Calling 3 or 4 times a day
Called today at 11.40 am - nobody on the line when I answered. They have called before trying to sell me an update to my package. Scammers -should be put out of business.
have been receiving continous calls at work from this number i am not interested and want the calls to stop.
I keep getting calls from this number. When I pick up the phone and say hello, no one speaks then 5 or more seconds later they put the phone down. I've even told who ever it is to stop calling and get a life! This has been going on for 2 weeks!
08001836408 been called several times caller puts phone down
scam number asking for your personal details
This number just keeps calling am feed up with it can't something be done about it
KEep calling me multiple times a day and leaving 1 second of silent voicemail. This is harassment.
Rang twice and stopped before I answered. No message left. Annoying . Come on branson, you have scant credibility left, don't lose what little you grasp
Seems to be a lot saying the caller said its VM. Is it possible that it is VM? I've just upgraded my VM mobile to a new phone but had a missed call from that number this morning.
A person with poor English claimed to be from Virgin Media and started asking me to confirm personal details. They hung up when I declined.
Virgin Media. Sales team simply do not understand the concept of No. Reject their calls everytime.
0800 183 6408 twice or three times day, i've blocked the number and message but keep getting blank voicemail left. Spoke to virgin media and they said they no nothing about it and can't block the number.
Asian woman called my mobile claiming to be from O2 & asking for post code & account number, told her if you phoned me you know my account number & post code so this is a scam as O2 have never have contacted me, the woman put the phone down on me as she had been caught out. the
I telephone Virgin Media to let them on seems nothing they can do I just ignore it on mobile but onlandline comes up no number so difficult to block but I just ignore that too Crazy these idiots find your name nothing is private
Indian person claiming to be from VM i hung up.
Someone called me from this number just now, saying it was Virgin Media. I have blocked their number. I had a similar call a last week from 0800 1836403, a slightly different number, and I have blocked that one too.
0800 183 6408 called me on 26/062017 at 12.05 pm. When I picked up my phone, there was silence, which told me that the call was from a call centre, so I put the phone down.
Virgin upgrade, they hung up after 5 seconds!
Virgin media sales team Had few calls from them but missed them called the number and said it's virgin media
Didn't answer, but based on this info have added to reject list.
Spam call! Constantly ringing my wife's mobile and hanging up.
Said they were VM and reviewing my account, explained that before we went further they needed to confirm first line of my address and postcode, I said 'go on then', silence, then eventually he said 'you tell me' and so I explained that as he phoned me he should confirm it for my security and he just hung up. I think they probably are VM outsourcing some selling stuff, he knew my name, but I'm blocking them as I am not interested and they're pretty dumb to think they can insist on the same security qs when they call you as when you call them tho I seem to remember my bank doing that once and being narked with me for not trusting them.
At least two calls per day EVERY DAY. They should be stopped and fined HEAVILY!
They claimed to be virgin media which I know they aren't because they're not open at 20:13. Who the f*ck calls someone past 7PM anyway? Scammers
called me saying they were from Virgin media and asked for my post code and address - I asked them to verify themselves, they tried a bit harder then hung up wishing me a nice day :(
left no message on answering machine
Calls several times a day and if goes to voicemail never leaves a message
Regularly get calls on mobile from this no.... blank voice msgs too.... not sure if these people are trying to sell on behalf virgin why virgin can do nothing about it.... really annoying ....Please people get a real job and stop annoying us.......
did not answer - clearly unsolicited
Have got fed up with 0800 numbers calling my mobile. Refuse to answer. If they don't leave a message, can't be important or is a scam.
This number has called our land line upto 6 times a day, since receiving a letter from Virgin stating that our TV box will not be supported after 30 Jul and if we do not have their free box upgrade our TV service will stop - will not leave a message - having read the comments will attempt to block it!
0800 183 6408 is virgin media, trying to sell you a upgrade.
Repeatedly phoning at random times in the day.
08001836408 Virgin Media .....I said to them yesterday, no thank you I'm not interested ...and 3 times today they have rang back and when I pick the telephone up and say "hello" they hang up. Annoying.
Over the last week I have received 9 calls from this number. I do not answer it and the never leave a message on my voice mail.
Asked who they were and what they wanted, said Virgin Media offering discounts on phone deals. I am with VM but said not interested in phone deals and they said ok goodbye. Usual annoying tweets ale as far as I could tell. Will now block number!
Caller said they are offering me an upgrade to my Virgin Contract. I contacted Virgin and they have told me that it is not on of their numbers. Scam?
08001836408 - BEWARE!!!! lady called to say as we were a loyal customer they were going to upgrade my tv to a full house bundle (incl sport & films) and my b'band to 200mb for 9 months for free. I asked her at least 4 times that as I was out of contract that this would not tie me into a new contract with virgin either in the 'free 9 months' or afterwards and she said that at no time would I be tied into a contract now or after the 9 months. I thought great. Free to me doesnt exist so I then decided to call 151 virgin media to check to see if it was a scam and I was told I had just taken out a new contract!! I have got that reversed and put in a complaint regarding the call and have kept the old details from the contract I am out of!
BLOCK! this number if you have the option to do so. If indeed it is Virgin Media, which I doubt, and you do answer the call ask for it in writing then hang up.
Had a call on my mobile around 9pm. Claiming they were from virgin and my mobile contract was due for upgrade. Strange as i am not a virgin customer. They totally ignored this and continued to request my full address and postcode. If they were genuine they would have the info. Please do not give anything away a bunch of scammers need locking up sooner rather than later.
I keep getting nuisance calls from this no for the pasted three days l keep ignoring it but they are persistent Same no as before about six weeks ago l had it blocked
This is a scam I've spoken to virgin media they advise to ignore calls from this and similar numbers, they don't ring you about your boxes !!;
Rings then nobody speaks this has happened several times I'm getting a quite sick of this
Rang my mobile twice but I cancelled call as I did not recognise the number.Have now blocked it.
Keep calling 3 or 3 times a day silent voicemail left, if its virgin media I upgraded my phone last week so can't upgrade so why call number blocked
Went on to Virgin Facebook page to complain. Their answer: "Sorry about the calls Paul. If we do call again just ask nicely to be removed ^GT". my reply: "They do not answer or leave messages????"
virgin media trying to upgrade a phone! no, thanks!
its calling me every day how bad is that
This number calls my mobile several times a day, ignoring it.
I get a call from this number every 2-3 days... I have a cheap desk top phone with caller i.d. display....makes it so easy not to have to pick the phone up and speak to this annoying id**ts. DONT ever answer the phone if this number calls !! Virgin media to blmae
If they are from Virgin Media they are using overseas call centres. I was called too but said something in Italian then hung up!
This number just phoned. Say they are from Virgin Media have all my account details trying to sell a broadband upgrade. Very aggressive and wouldn't take no not interested for an answer. I phoned Virgin Media customer services and complained. Apparently they are related to them but based in the Phillipines and they have no control over them. Not good enough Virgin if I had been an elderly customer I would have felt very intimidated. I have been removed from their phone marketing.
I have blocked this number but they still ring I'm sick of it
They rang but left no message
They started by trying to obtain VM account details from me, so I hung up.
Getting calls 3 - 4 times a day for weeks. I answered one about a week ago. Told me they would upgrade my broadband to 200, give me a new TV box with 20 extra channels and a remote access to my box. Kept insisting it was all free until end of call when he said it would be extra money per month. Told him very politely I wasn't interested in spending any more money. Still getting 3 - 4 calls a day from them! Just phoned Virgin Media to complain about the nuisance calls and he said he would definitely remove me from the marketing call list. Fingers crossed this will happen. I did say that there are a lot of irate customers getting these calls and they are likley to lose a lot of customers, me included if they persist. RING 151 AND ASK TO BE REMOVED FROM THE MARKETING LIST.
My phone picks it up as spam or fraud so number is blocked
This number calls at least twice a day. Usually in evening. Have not answered and they do not leave a voicemail.
yet another silent call
Just had a call from this number,about my virgin broadband. The lady wanted my address and post code. I replied that I wasn't happy about the call and she rang off. Is this a scam . C Walsh
Silent called me and then hung up
I've been inundated with call on my answer phone from this number! I'm at work so can't answer then I have to check in case it's my family, to find this number has rang again. I'm fed up with it
African female voice. Noisy environment. Talked about implementing broadband. Inarticulate and asked no security questions. Told them I wasn't convinced and hung up.
Thought I recognised it as V ******* M. I asked to be taken off there calls list, but evidently I'm no back on, no doubt for my convenience?
Don't know don't care just wish they would sod off and leave me alone if it is virgin they should know better than to be harassing people if I want anything from them i would call them and ask them myself so STOP BLOODY RINGING ME
Never answer , ring two or three times a day - nuisance.
Scam call. Do not give them your detail. Block their number! :)
Rings every night same time, silent call no message left.
Calls couple of times a day, have never answered having checked on this website
I had the same nuisance call on my land line from a poor english speaking person and plenty of missed calls on my mobile . I agree it must be VM they are my server although my mobile is not. they are pains in the backside Ii have put the answering machine n to the land line now them now. and just delete the others from my phone.. They should be done for causing all this harrasment .
This no. called me on Thursday 21st June 2018 at 10.30am. It was a follow-up after I had received a letter from Virgin Media, that they were upgrading their TV boxes and broadband hubs fir free. I was glad that I didn't cut the lady off (I now do, if I think it is a cold call) and made an appointment for an engineer to call to fit the box etc.
this number keeps calling and asks to speak to mary phipps i have told them she died over 2 years ago and therefore cannot speak to them.the thick callers cannot seem to get it into their minds that she no longer exists.AR PHIPPS her eldest son
Rang today, did not answer just picked up phone and replaced it on the stand.
I was called twice within a short time but did not get to the phone in time to answer it. Did a 1471 and this number came up. I always cheque out numbers of calls that do not leave a messages as I deem this is suspicious.
0800 183 6408 call 3/4 times a week and is not Virgin It is a scam trying to get personal details .
Guy said. Hi. Is this ****? im calling from virgin and we are offering various family discounts for services we provide. Is **** there? To which i replied who and what? Im with sky. He responded: oh must be the wrong number. This call's from virgin. Goodbye. Sounded philipino. Definitely not virgin
Just got a call from this number and didn't answer it. I generally don't if it's an 0800 number. Having looked at previous comments, it appears to be a scam.
Have had several calls from different Asian ladies claiming to be from Virgin Media to discuss the upgrade to my broadband. When I refused to confirm some personal details(why should I? They called me so should know who I am) they hang up.
Have blocked the number but they have phoned at least once a day for the past 3 weeks, including when I was on holiday abroad!
0800 183 6408 is not virgin media!
i have been pestled by this number 08001836408. I found out this number is from Virgen Media. I don't have phone or broadband from them, so why are they calling me for?Can only be fishing but in my case at the wrong tree!
keep receiving calls from this number though no one answers when I pick up.
Indian woman fro VM offering Mobile upgrades. Said I'm with O2 and happy with one that does calls and texts. She hung up!!!
Similar experience to others receiving a call from this number. Managed to contact Virgin who said the call was not from them. Ignore 0800 numbers.
A message was left on my answer machine by someone speaking another language. Possibly Urdu or Punjabi!
Answered, foreign person said from Virgin Media. Wanted me to confirm my post code. I said when I want to upgrade will go into the shop and hung up. The same number has since rang me twice today but I ignored both times. Will block if can.
Once you pick up they will call you few times a day at various times
Spam! Phoned my mobile today but did not leave a message.
Called my EE mobile at 19:54 today 04/04/2017 but i didn't answer it. Googled the number which brought me here so now i have blocked it on the comments already given.
Consistent unwanted calls. Blocked.
either virgin or a scam
This number just called me - my mobile screen showed that it was a suspected spam caller so I didn't answer.
Silent call. Call everyday. Not good enough they don't leave a message,
Telesales, persistent multiple calls.
It's Virgin media using an off-shore call centre to cold call their customers trying to get you to up-grade your mobile phone contract with them. Number added to my auto-reject list.
called to ask about virgin media upgrade. unlikely to be from the company.
Rejected their call. They left a three second silent voice mail.
I had a missed call from this number today, saw this post and rang the Virgin Mobile Contact Us number from the website to ask if it was genuine - there was an automated message on my phone which said 'we tried to contact you today, don't worry it wasn't important, we will try again sometime' so I gather the number IS Virgin Mobile
An Asian sounding woman claimed to be from Virgin Media asking for me by name. When I told them they couldn't speak with me she asked why. I said I had already told Virgin not to contact me by phone. She claimed that they were working on behalf of VM and were not aware of this, saying she was only doing her job and wanted to continue talking. I then got into 'angry' role and told her I did not appreciate being phoned at this time of night (20:55) and to get off the phone. She continued talking, so I ended the call. I believe this may be an independent company phoning 'on behalf' of Virgin Media.
Call from this number, Asian lady. Stating that she was from Virgin Media, know fake, so informed them I didn't have Virgin Media. They knew my name, number and that I had Virgin Media Broadband...
Lucky I have a phone that blocks numbers, but these id**ts seem to take no notice of that
I was called yesterday, 18/04/2017 at 18:07 from 0800 183 6408. A lady with, I think, a Phiipino accent, asked for me by name, but I thought it was a nuisance call/scam, so said, "Sorry, I'm not interested - no thanks." and put the phone down. I didn't know that it was from Virgin - I suppose they are using a foreign call centre (?)
I been getting 2 or 3 calls aday for the last 2 weeks from this number I have blocked it on my mobile. I also have asked not to be contacted by mobile... now I blocked the number i keep getting voicemails which I know are from them but no message left just 5-10seconds of black recording. really annoying STOP doing it... have Virgin not understood about new GDPR regulations?? you shoudl only contact a customer on the preferences they have set / told you... in my case... email only!
This is virgin media i rang them and told them to stop ringing me this morning let's see if they stick to their word
Sounded like an Asian female no other details.
Don't know who it is. l didn't answer.
Repeatedly calls our land line at least once a day if not more, and this has been going on for months. Only once in that entire time has someone been on the other end of the line, saying that they're virgin media and offering us a "free upgrade" but we'd just need to pay a one off instalation fee. Other than that one time they hang up each time the call is answered. Rang virgin media a few days ago and they said they'd block the number. It called again today so rang 150 again and wouldn't give up until they admitted that it was definitely virgin media sales team but that they'd tell them to no longer call us.
They say they are from Virgin media, I said I would not talk to them and said I would call virgin myself to verify the call. The lady said ok and put the phone down. Don't give any info and block the number
Currently getting calls on a weekly basis from this number. I have blocked it, but phone records the and date it rejected the call. If it is Virgn Media as others have reported I would expect them to use the landline number that they supply for me, not my mobile number that is with another provider. Suspiciously like some sort of a scam.
I did not answer as suspected a sales call but found no warnings from this website so called back & found it was a Virgin Media recorded message. They were probably doing one of their "customer reviews" which ends with trying to upgrade your service! But nothing harassing.
Virgin Media, I received a letter that my old vbox won't be working anymore after 30 th of July. I started online upgrade (free) procedure and they called me back with additional info where they should sent a new box and a few standard questions. Fast call.
they keep ringing , I've blocked them. They are virgin Media.
VIRGIN MEDIA team. Call centre based in INDIA. I used to get 2 miss calls everyday, Finally I BLOCKED them as I don't want to speak to them.
I don't answer 0800 calls anymore because I am so fed up with time wasting arse holes!
this number is calling me twice a day! i don't know who it is and i would know if its virgin media! they leave voice message but nothing on the message!
Have called me several times but this was the first time I answered. It was obvious from the outset that this was some kind of scam, but I was interested to see what they knew about me/us and what was their objective. When I asked questions they were clearly reading from a set list of replies and didn't appear to understand English
Had a call from this number on a Saturday noon. My answer machine cut in they rang off.
Several calls one month ago. I blocked the number and diverted to voicemail, Three more voice mails last week. Two were sllent. One was just "Hello"
Virgin media (fake) call centre
Nuisance caller ringing nearly every day and disturbing Sunday evenings. Would block and report if I could on my landline.
Virgin media cold calling......p***s.
Called me, claimed they Virgin Media, asked me some security questions. And I said, "first, you prove to me, you are who you say you are", and they said the data protection laws prevented them from confirming any of my details, and therefore they couldn't. So I put the phone down.
0800 1836408. Called yet again, asked for their phone number, she refused
Just called me couldn't get what she said and I hung up...now checked here and blocked them.
After repeatedly getting calls from this number I did some research. This is defiantly a scam number. Virgin have confirmed the number is not theirs and said to block. There are also other warnings about it online.
I was told it is Virgin and talked about the upgrade. I told him I was really busy but he insisted only 5 mins. I said no and called me back later. He never did. A Strange thing is he asked me my postcode. That's odd. If WE call the service desk, they should ask us the postal address or date of birth to check if a caller is a legitimate person, not other way around. Blocked this caller.
why do this virgin media team not understand the word no? really annoying they call several times a week.
i have been called by them 6 times in the course of a week and they are annoying. i only answered once and it was quiet. they wont stop.
Every day sometimes twice a day asking initially for someone elses name. Told no but continue to call my mobile. Blocking is the only way
Keeps calling now blocked. I never answer and they never leave a message so no idea for sure who it is.
Apparently Virgin Mobile... Not convinced though! Hung up.
missed call off this number supposedly left a message but voicemail is just silent, suspect scam call
Missed call. Voicemail left but no message. Checked here and other sites as to who called me. Some saying Virgin Media and some saying it's not. Rang VM to see if number registered to them. Reply was number registered to VM Tech Support Team. I've had no problems with any of my VM services. Possibly VM but beware!
Received unsolicited call from " virgin media " regarding improving my broadband. Woman with Asian accent asked me to confirm the first line of my address. I said " if you are from Virgin Media, then you tell me what the first line of may address is!!!" She rabbited on with same shpeel for a few moments, not realising that I had hung up on her but could still hear her on hands free she then hung up. Oddly this woman sounds exactly the same as another scam caller representing some other company.
Nuisance call, no message.
Lady claiming to be from Virgin Media claiming I was lucky as I've been chosen to receive a fantastic offer to upgrade my TV package. I told her I didn't want to and that I'm happy with the one I have. She was very pushy, taking no for an answer. She ignored me every time I said no thank you, and continued telling how good the upgrade is. In the end she hung the phone up on me.
This co. ring every week. i have caller id on my landline so I never pick up. i have just this minute discovered i can bar calls on my panasonic phone which i have now done. Fingers crossed it works. Im sick of running around the house looking for the phone only to discover its a scam/sales/PPI/you have been in an accident call!!!
Its Virgin promotions/upgrade call this Virgin number 08001831150 and the promotions number will be blocked
Phoned on my mobile 8pm, third time recently, broadband optimisation apparently. Knew my name, when asked what the call was about, simply please explain why you are calling, it was like talking to a brick wall. Wanted my details first. I phoned virgin who confirmed a sales team from the Philippines. (by the way security of your info abroad is not subject to confidentiality laws). Was told you are better off dealing with the British teams, disbelieve. will be contacting head office, wasters.
Called twice on mobile, which I do not use much. Have not answered call and switched mobile off.
No idea. Who called. But it was an automated voice reading my land line number out. It did this twice. I replied hello and the line went dead.
Claimed to be Virgin Media but after literally 1 minute I was being asked to verify my card and bank details for an application I had been declined 4 days earlier! ...Hung up and blocked them!
This number called this afternoon but there was no one there when I answered and the line went dead. Am now waiting for a follow up call which I will ignore.
MISS CALL FROM THIS NUMBER
I have had calls from this number and am on the fone to virgin media right now !!!! These calls are not from virgin media as they would call from an 0845 number.The lady I have just spoken to has filed a case for investigation,so please dont give any details to them !
Fishing for our details, they ended the call very quickly when they realised they weren't getting any
Someone from "Virgin Media" calling about upgrading and optimising the number. My phone screened it as a Scam, but answered anyway as I was in the mood to troll a cold caller. After checking here, I hung up and got online to Virgin Media directly, they said: ".... I have checked and it was not contact made by us...." This number is fraudulent
08001836408 claims to be the sales team from Virgin Media however this is not the case. Do not give out any details.
I haven't answered after reading other comments but they are calling me 4 or 5 times a day leaving silent messages. A real pain when you are trying to go about your day
This number keeps ringing my landline at least twice a day. Sometimes at very unreasonable hours. They never leave a message
only said they were improving my house services, sounded surprised when I confirmed my name to them and immediately asked for my address and post code
Keep getting spammed by these people. Allegedly virgin but if so virgin should be ashamed
Second call today - I called Virgin Media who know nothing about them but their supervisor rang the number, asked who they were, and was told to F--- off. Virgin are reporting them and considering taking legal action. Scammers - hang up.
Woman claimed to be from VirginMedia calling to improve my Broadband. Second call within a week - granted different Freephone number. Was oblivious to the fact that I had just had an engineer visit me this afternoon upgrading my services. I gave woman an earful about using my mobile number for Sales Calls, particularly annoying as I can be contacted on my VM landline. Got response of that's the contact number you gave us - for engineers, yes. Not for unsolicited Sales Calls.
Someone has sold my phone number and I'm now getting multiple calls from this number every day, it's blocked but they're still trying!
I don't answer any 0800 or 0845 numbers. They ring both my mobile and landline. No message left
Claiming to be from Virgin Media but can't pronounce my name correctly every time they call from whatever crap hole this call centre is based in. Call repeatedly and always ignore if you say you are busy or driving and don't have time to speak to them they just try forcing their pushy sales bullcrap on you regardless. Now BLOCKED and hope they rot in hell.
Blocked the number a week ago, still receiving voicemails from them. What the actual hell?
Asked to speak to me on wife's mobile. Wanted me to confirm adddres and post code. Apparently they had all my details in front of them. I ask them to give me ANY of my details on screen And I would then confirm the rest for them. They said the couldn't do that. So I told them not to bother calling me back. Great sales technique VM. Making sure you only sell to the stupid people! Number now blocked
Received a voicemail alert but absolutely nothing when I tried to listen to it!
I have just had a V6 box installed so this number cannot be a sales call for an upgrade in my case. Whether it is a follow up call to see if I'm satisfied with the installation, I don't know. The trouble these days is that we get so many scam callers it is difficult to know when and when not to answer the phone. In effect scam callers can stop us receiving legit calls. I just wish people would leave a message if they are a legit caller. My new phone has BT Guardian so a caller has to announce themselves if their number isn't in my contacts. However if a legit person doesn't announce or leave a message I then presume this is Spam and block it.
The same number keeps calling me everyday while im at school and im thinking the teachers are going to take it off me but plus it constanly keeps calling me which IS annoying
Spam! Called and left a silent message at approximately 4pm.
They called my mobile and said they were Virgin Media, and wanted some security information which I declined. I'm with Virgin, so I rang Virgin and they confirmed it was their Sales team, but that they should not really have been calling me and have put a note on my account not to be called again. So top marks Virgin home base, poor show sales team
called twice seems to be a scam I have blocked it.
Rang yesterday & again today but hang up before you have time to get your mobile out of your pocket. I have blocked this number after reading these posts .
Had 4 calls in last two days - and this morning 10.54 twice - they have now put +44 in front of the number - I have blocked it but my mobile tells me they have rung.
Nuisance call just silence for a few secs then hung up.
I don't know who it is. But keeps calling at this type time for 3 days.. Gonna block thanks for the info from this sight.
This number called me in the last 12 hrs 9 times. A woman told me in indian accent that She is calling from VM. She knew my name but askes for my details to confirm it. It makes sense but I hanged it up at I'll put it on a black list if they call me again.
Offered discountsbut definitely SCAM caller. Spoke to Virgin Media who confirmed it not one of their outgoing numbers.
Called me 3 times a day for a week claiming to be virgin media. I don't currently have a virgin media account but have had previously, called customer services and was told it wasn't them and they had no idea who it was. Firmly believe this is a scam!
0800 183 6408 ive called virgin and they dont have this number they are looking into it so be careful
I was unsure when they called so I hung up and contacted Virgin media. It is a legitimate call about upgrading phone plans and TV packages with new deals from an offshore call centre
intrusive & harassing
Have two calls per day from this number also silent voicemails! Am fed up with it!!
Man with Asian accent said he was phoning from "Virgin Media your service provider". I said I did not want to speak to anyone and hung up.
foreigner from virgin media. hung up.
The Virgin Media verified FB page have confirmed that this number is from their outbound sales team. It's obviously a waste of time having your marketing preferences set to NO for marketing by email, post, SMS and phone from Virgin Media (as I have). One for the regulator, I thoink.
They are also using 08001836404. I've had calls from both claiming to be virgin media offering upgrade.
Harrassing calling several times a day. Virgin Media. I am a customer but have asked them many times to stop calling me as I only want to be contacted via e-mail. They keep promising to stop but still call. I have stopped answering.
No message left on answering machine, just ignored.
no one spoke when I answered the call.
I’m called so much with these harassing calls, I don’t even bother answering anymore. I block everyone of them. !!??
Virgin sales plagued me with calls to my mobile. I blocked them using Mr number but they've started again using a different number. I now added this new number to the block list but because of their f**king annoying and continuous spamming they can f*ck right off and I'll be changing providers.
This number has called me about 15 times in the last week,from previous comments I guess it is Virgin media as i am a current customer of theirs-REally Annoying.
Someone unconvincingly saying they were Virgin - first thing they said was that the call was being recorded and something about a discount. Said I wasn't interested and hung up
ITs a total scam ... they asked to confirm my details and I just made up a random address which they accepted as real lol .... I laughed at them and they just hung up.
08001836408 Said she was from Virgin and that I was eligible for a phone upgrade and when I said put it in the post she hung up. Very rude.
I have been called by this number more than 6 times over the past 24 hours both on my mobile and landline. It is a Virgin Media salesperson trying to sell me extra services, which I do not want.
Fed up of this caller on my home phone ,usually an Asian woman,, I just keep hanging up...
They seemed dodgy and aggressive. Wanted to talk about rewards for being a valuable customer. For which they needed to confirm my identity. Needless to say, I didn't give any information.
Call me As Virginmedia and try to obtain my address. I have No time for messing with Them so I just told Them Who they are and hung up. Add Number as dangerous because it is.
I had three calls from 0800 183 6408 over the weekend. Said she was calling from Virgin Media, very difficult to understand what the lady was saying because of thick accent. I have virgin media account, but she called my mobile not my virgin number. Seems very suspect.
I never answer 0800 calls, but have been made aware that this particular number are claiming to be virgin media. I've had 10 missed calls from them in the space of half an hour. NUISANCE CALLER
f**king annoying. They knew my name and asked for some changes. She claimed to be from Virgin Media but I think theyre chatting shit
This number has phoned me a couple of times, so I answered and was told it's virgin media and they want to upgrade my contract. They then asked for my name, address and back details. I refused to give it them until they told me what my password is! The phone then went dead lol its just a scam please don't give any details out!!
Today is Thursday 07th June 18 Time 11.12am 4 missed calls from 08001836408...already........ I blocked this number yesterday.......annoyed ??
fraudsters! not virgin
have called me twice a day all this week but never leave a voicemail just 7 seconds of silence. really cheesed off with it now am going to block calls,
It's challenging as the Asian lady spoke about two words of English. Virgin has unfortunately stopped to new all time lows. Please block the number and request English lessons for the caller
This number just called me - Thursday 14th June 2018 at 7.10pm. Silence on the other end of the line, so obviously a cold-call centre. I put the phone down on them as soon as someone eventually spoke. Cold calls are ILLEGAL !
Asking personal questions about how many devices connected to wifi wanting to go into detail got to stage where he asked are all devic s bought and paid for knew details about my virgin media account what to package and line rental plus broadband speed
Claiming to be virgin media asking if my Broadband was ok confirm address,when she asked how many family members I have,I ask what was the purpose of this call then she hung up
received two calls a day for the last three days from this number, my number is unlisted yet there appears to be links to Virginwho are my provider, seems possible are unethical enough to sell lists of customers numbers!!
Had a few missed calls from this number, so checked it out on here - not surprised by what i saw. Our household now have a strict policy of 'Who are you and what is this concerning' whilst neither confirming or denying any name, address etc until we know who it is. Usually the call ends up with me saying that I have never heard of the person they are asking for, and that its the totally wrong address and part of the country from what they have 'on their records'... As for answering their security questions... no chance..you phoned me legitimate or not - these calls are annoying and probably distressing to some
block this number as soon as you can or you will get repeat calls
virgin - got a new phone and wasted money for no reason they took my credit card and gave a s8 I know need to pay 23.99 per month for 2 years
Yet another call from this number - Asian woman speaking poor English claiming to be from Virgin Media who incidentally know nothing about these people. Absolute scam.
I got a call from this number today. It’s weird.
I have numerous calls from this number which I've ignored. Decided to answer this morning and a man with a strong foreign accent said hello, when I said hello back he hung up on me. From now on every 0800 number I receive will be block. Such a damn nuisance!!! if you see an 08001836408 number come up do not answer!
Been ringing everyday at weird times on my Mobile, but will never answer
Said He was Virgin media asked to confirm my details but didn't seem to have any, expected me to give details to him. Told them not to call again have been bombarded with calls since 6 days in a row.
Yup, same as everyone else. Claimed to be from Virgin Mobile but I could hear a call centre boiler house in the background. Wanted to 'check' my details by me confirming them. Number now blocked. I hate these s*cm. Why aren't the authorities clamping down on them and carting them away?
They have been calling me repeatedly all week, I love the fact that I they called me but I have to prove who I am..!! I declined to do this. I told them that I cannot talk to them as I am at work and they should phone back in the evening...they didn't and then phoned me at work again the next day... I think it probably is Virgin Media but they're sales approach is really crap. I was given the 'Top Package' free for 6 months last year and when I cancelled after the 6 months they put me back on my old package but on a new 12 contract..!! seems a bit like a scam to get you back into a contract.
Keep getting phone calls from this number. Phoned up Virgin that confirmed she was legit and then said to block her because they have had loads of complaints. I asked to have my name and number removed so she can’t contact me.
Follow up from my last comment...I phoned Virgin Media and they said that this is a genuine VM Sales number. I requested to be taken off the "call" list.
This number caller is harassing me
Had 2 calls from this number in the last few days, the first one went dead when I answered and the second time an Asian sounding lady, from what sounded like a Call Centre, started to say her name and it went dead. I recently had a text from ?virgin regarding my mobile, so answered, but from reading the above I have blocked the number. Although it’s a free phone number I don’t ring back unless I know who it’s from e.g. friends or family.
For me it was Virgin Media Sales team India I guess. Very friendly but was pushing virgin Media Homework’s package which is £9.99 extra a month for home businesses. I was on a noisy building site and couldn’t really hear everything. Turns out I was signed up to it even though I said I didn’t want to be charged any extra. Phoned them back in the evening and a lovely young lady cancelled it right away.
Called me once, blocked the number. They still keep on calling without leaving voicemail.
RECEIVED CALL SAYING THEY WERE FROM VIRGIN MEDIA (INDIAN ACCENT) HARD TO UNDERSTAND AND WANTED TO KNOW MY FIRST LINE OF ADDRESS - THEY KNEW MY NAME AND SAID I HAD BEEN WITH VM A LONG TIME AND WAS OFFERING A SAVING. I ASKED THEM TO E-MAIL ME BUT SAID THEY COUDN'T - SO I HUNG UP.
This number has tried to get through 10 times now but as my phone as BT Call Guardian on it the number is blocked but they still try haven't they got the message that i do't want to talk to them.
On mobile: asked for me by name, then asked how I was, I said fine and I asked how they were and they hung up. Didn't even tell me who they were!
Indian accent, said they couldn't confirm they were who they said they were because of data protection act. Number now blocked by my phone.
If it is Virgin media they are harassing me also and as a customer I don't like it so at the end of my contract I will change my supplier. We have had 4 calls in two days and when I answer they hang up but it could be they are calling to apologise for the tardy service and stonewalling practice I complained about concerning their Indian call center.
Persistent time wasters definitely a scam
This number rang at 10:41am I didn’t answer but they have rang a few times in the morning and I’ve nowblocked the number , I keep getting virgin media trying to up my package not interested , thanks for the info x
