Hello All

Just received a call from a very persistent lady, claiming to be 02.

She said I have to change my password and my sim is going to be blocked in 2 days. To do this I have go give the last 4 digits of my bank account that is connected to my account.

Is this correct ? I havnt received any correspondence from 02 about this. 

Anyone else had this call ?

Thank you 

Alison

It's a well known scam
Block the number and report it free to 7726.
Don’t open any links or enter any information or give the caller any codes.
