Business upgrade team?

I recently submitted a request for an upgrade to one of the phones on my business account via the business portal, and was advised to expect a call back within 24 hours. Slightly later than this I got a call from 0330 303 5293, but the phone screen flashed to say "Suspected Spam" so I let it ring out. No voicemail was left.

 

I then had an email from o2businessteam@o2businessteam.co.uk saying they hadn't been able to contact me and to call 0800 597 6518 within 48 hours.  I've done this and after taking company name, my name order and contact number details been promised a call back.

 

I'm now not sure if this O2, and can't find that number or website anywhere on the o2.co.uk sites.  Also, having looked the o2businessteam.co.uk website, found that this is just a hosting page - not an o2 site.  Am I being scammed?  Has my order been intercepted somewhere and this isn't actually o2 at all?  Any ideas?  TIA.

@RedPepper 

Call 8002 for O2 Business contracts from your O2 phone to check.

I have no affiliation whatsoever with O2 or any subsidiary companies. Comments posted are entirely of my own opinion. This is not Customer Service so we are unable to help with account specific issues.

Thanks for all the feedback.

 

I did call 8002 yesterday and they have agreed the "spam" number and domain looks bad, but couldn't confirm if it was/wasn't dodgy.  However, Nathan at the team was able to sort out the renewal/upgrade for me, so I was able to ignore the messages/calls from the "spam" number (whether genuine or not!).  Also, have decided to renew/upgrade one of the other numbers on the account, so a good result in the end.

 

Thanks all!
