Do not answer this number! They rang me pretending to be 02, very convincing. They nearly emptied my account. Wanted my card details to change my contract. It was only then I realised something wasn’t right. I hung up and rang 02 and asked them if they knew of the number and they said this number has been scamming other people! Warn others of this number. Never give card/account details over phone.

Hi guys, bumping this topic a bit as I just got some new information - after further checking I got confirmation that this number is actually a genuine O2 number for outbound sales, and a new one, which is probably the reason it was not picked up on as O2 by customer service unfortunately when you called at the time @Karis.

This number calls at least once a day I never answer and they never leave a message, I would block but do not know how to but frustrating, Do not answer these types of call I do not trust anynumbers that I do not prior know, then check then online see if are legitimate
