O2 Security.

 

Every month I get fake messages from a hoax O2 number asking me to 'press here' to make a payment. They know my monthly amount and the date I pay.

 

This week I missed a monthly payment to O2 and my phone was suspended for a day. That very same day my father gets a 'friend in need' text saying my phone has been cut off, and to transfer cash

 

Your database in hacked somehow, and the bandits know my account movements inside out.

@Hacked-Off Unfortunately there are a lot of scams which have plagued all of the network providers and they haven't come up with a way to stop them as yet. At present, all you can do is the following:

Block the number and report it free to 7726.
Don’t open any links or enter any information.
