Just had a call from a local std coded number saying it was O2 offering a new contract because my contract had come to an end. Sounded very convincing. Concerned how they knew my contract had just finished ?? Asked for bank details to set up new contract. I googled the number they called on and it located the number as being the actual O2 store in Blackburn. I called the store direct on the registered store number and they had no knowledge of that number. Be alert people

DO NOT give out any information.

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.
