Virgin Media Phishing Emails

  BT 16:55 10 Jan 2011

I received the following Email toady purporting to come from Virgin Media.
It is a phishing attempt and Virgin Media know about it

"Dear Customer,

This e-mail has been sent to you by Virgin Media to inform you that we were unable to process your most recent payment of bill. This might be due to either of the following reasons:

1. A recent change in your personal information. (eg: billing address, phone)
2. Submitting incorrect information during bill payment process.

Due to this, to ensure that your service is not interrupted, we request you to confirm and update your billing information today by clicking here.

If you have already confirmed your billing information then please disregard this message as we are processing the changes you have made.

Virgin Media
Billing Department

Thanks for your co-operation."

Thank you for the heads up. I like to think that my guard is up in relation to this type of thing but if it coincides with an expected billing confirmation - who knows?
