Alert on phishing message

Received below today. Dont click on URL, certainly not genuine O2 website. From previous posts here it looks like this scam was around last year just with different message in it:

 

"We're closing International Favourites on 30 November.But until then you can still call friends and family abroad on this service.To learn more visit: [removed]"

Please remove link @Anonymous so that no one clicks on it or edit it to disable it.

It certainly doesn't look genuine but with  World Chat and TU closing at the end of this month and next month, it's come at an opportune time.

Hi @Anonymous! Thanks for posting about it!

We have just checked this and the message is legitimate from O2. The URL leads to a page on the O2 website, here.

In that case, if possible, please delete my post.

O2 could have just used usual domain in url then it wouldnt look suspicious.
