O2 customer details being leaked???

[ Edited ]

Hi,

I received the below email which is almost certainly a phishing attack, given the real email address it came from and the URL behind the "HERE" link. Did anyone else get this? It is scary that they got hold of my name, email address, phone number and even date of birth and now they want my password too.

From: noreply@o2mail.co.uk <test@sipav.org>
Date: 30 December 2014 8:23:39 pm GMT
To: "mr Xxxxx Xxxxx" <xxxxx@yahoo.co.uk>
Subject: mr Xxxxx Xxxxx - Your account for mobile number (07xxxxxxxxx) requires immediate attention - 30 Dec 2014

This e-mail was sent to xxxxx@yahoo.co.uk by O2.

Hello mr Xxxxx Xxxxx,

It is a blag. They get some details and send out mass emails.

apparently I have been with every bank in the world, every building society, most mobile networks and a fair few energy suppliers.

I have had many accidents and numerous ppi policies.

It is all a case that they buy mailing lists with some info on. It is pure luck that in this case you are an o2 customer.

Bin it and move on. If in doubt phone o2 on 202.

There has been quite a few of these the last couple of days.
Pass it on to Toby and ignore it but it may be sensible to change your password, just in case.....

Yes... @Toby  was mentioned this morning re 4 other posts that appear to be scams or poor practice. He said he would be feeding the info back to the team. ...certainly seems to be the New Years resolution for these shysters Smiley Sad
