Dear Member:

We apologize if u had any trouble accessing our services. In the last month we have worked day and night, for the improvement of our services. We want to do our best, and make it as simple as possible for us, but especially for you, our valued customer. From the beginning of this year we have had a big number of solicitations and because of this it was necessary to replace the old database server with a new one, which has the information about our new clients, and where some of our clients are going to get moved. Please verify your information until March 20, 2007 and help us avoid the lock-out of your services. We require all old accounts to verify their information on file with us. To verify your account details now, please visit our secure server webform by clicking the hyperlink below:

Reported incidents


***Breaking News 14/03/07***

We are receiving reports of emails that appear to come from Virgin Media, inviting customers to update their payment details. The email invites the user to click on a link that takes them to a site that has been designed to look like its an official Virgin Media site, and then enter name, address and credit card details.

Please note this has not come from Virgin Media, and if you are reporting the email to us please delete it. If you have filled out the form and submitted it, please contact your card company straight away as the site is illegally collecting credit / debit card information.

The email will look like this:
