    Hi there,
    My wife just called me and reported a weird situation to me:

    Virgin Media (our ISP) called her and told her that they see crypto currency activities from our IP and that they want their "crypto consultant" to call or even visit.

    Number:
    +353857729628

    I highly reckon this is scam.

    Anybody else having experience?

    Almost definitely a scam, ring Virgin head office to be sure and don't return a call to this number. See https://www.phonenumbers.ie/number/353857729628

    Just confimed with Virgin Media: it's a scam.

    Others, needless to say potentially, but stay safe out there. Brief your wives if necessary. :)
