@MEW 

Always login from this link http://www.o2.co.uk/myo2 and not any links in emails or texts.

If you entered your details from a text linkk you need to login from above link and change your pssword immediately.

There's no reason for O2 to ask you to change your details so always be suspicious of these type of requests.

I have no affiliation whatsoever with O2 or any subsidiary companies. Comments posted are entirely of my own opinion. This is not Customer Service so we are unable to help with account specific issues.

Quite a few scams doing the rounds at the moment as you would expect.

I received this text yesterday:

Look at the text header : P ayPal.

Same advice, never ever click on a link in a text message.
