@Amna This is not O2. This is a customer community. If you've reported the fraud to O2, to the police, and to your bank there's no other advice or help anyone here can offer. The only thing you can do is to continue contacting customer service in the hope that a competent person will act on your request.

You could try contacting O2 via social media if you haven't done that as yet:
Facebook (https://o2uk.co/O2CFB), Twitter (https://o2uk.co/O2CTW), or Instagram (https://o2uk.co/O2CIG)

There are also these links to look at if you haven't before:

I DO NOT WORK FOR O2

In your position, I would be inclined to make a formal complaint to O2 about the apparent lack of progress :-

Customer+Complaints+code+250523.pdf (o2.co.uk)

https://www.o2.co.uk/documents/456036/4246828/Customer+Complaints+code+250523.pdf

 

Now there are reasons why the fraud team cannot update you about an ongoing investigation ; these are connected to criminal law and also to the money laundering regulations. And your case could be part of a much larger investigation into a group of "professional" scammers. If you search this forum, you will find links to various national newspaper articles and a television programme about scams carried out in the name of O2. 

 

Hence, I suggest that you do not consider taking your complaint further. Given that eight months have elapsed, you are simply using the complaints' procedure as a way of reminding O2 that you await an outcome and are desperate for some kind of finality. 

 

Please keep us informed of developments.
