Hi, I have had 3 scam texts in the last 24 hrs, is there anything I can do to stop these coming through apart from changing my number? I am reporting them as I get them but noticed they are getting more frequent recently. Any advice would be great.

Just keep blocking and reporting.

As you say, a number change is the only thing you could do, but that wouldn't guarantee anything as the scammers just input number ranges into auto diallers, so any number could be called at anytime.

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.

@ScamsMulti Unfortunately scam texts are a plague for everyone, with very little to be done about it at present.

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