The emails threaten the recipient with ‘automatic disconnection’ due to ‘invalid billing information’.

The links in the emails lead to genuine-looking phishing websites that are designed to steal your Virgin Media account login details.

Action Fraud says: “Don’t click on the links or attachments in suspicious emails, and never respond to messages that ask for your personal or financial details.”
