I've informed o2 but worthy of a post as the website the text message directs you to is extremely convincing.

From number +44 7983 834463

I've recieved a text message this morning from a mobile number asking me to log into my account to update my billing details as a payment hasn't gone through. Obviously I know this is a phishing scam but some of your customers might not realise as the website appears very genuine. Details are as follows...

O2: We have been unable to process your latest bill. In order to avoid fees please update your payment information via: https://updatebilling...

Url edited so you guys don't click onto it

Be aware.
Liam
