Phishing text - from Three!

Well this is a new one: I received a text message reportedly from the network Three this morning (to my number that is on o2) asking me to update my details to ensure my bill is paid.

There is a link on the text (that I've not clicked on and won't post here) as normal.

Just a warning to all that you should not be clicking on links in messages that you have not requested.

If you get anything like this then use your browser to go to the company asking for your details without using the link - or call their customer services!

Please note, this is not customer services and we cannot access your account. Do not publish personal details (email, phone number, bank account).

I guess your number was ported from Three at some point in the past.
The lookup tables the scammers use only show the original network assigned to the number and don’t have records of number porting.
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.
