Media text message

I've had a couple of texts messages under the title 02 alert.. the message reads "you have been sent a media message from ............... (mobile number quoted - unknown to me) . View it at www.o2.co.uk/m/ by typing in your mobile number and pin ..... "

I followed the instruction first time and apart from the mobile number, there was no media message.

I have just received the same text, I'm not comfortable with doing this a second time... has anyone else had this or does anyone know what this is?

sorry if I sound a bit silly, but with all the scams around at the mo!

@Janejones 

The link is genuine but if you don't know who sent it, I would ignore it.

Most likely advertising rubbish, yes.
