It is a genuine O2 number.

There's likely notes on your account so call them back but I'd use a different number.

Try 202 from your phone or any of these here Guide: Coronavirus Community Help and Support 

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.

This is NOT a genuine o2 number, I've just had them try to scam and o2 have confirmed it was not them. It was INCREDIBLY convincing and when they said they were sending me a security text it actually came from o2 as they were trying to change my password.

It is a genuine O2 number but currently it is being spoofed by scammers.

So NEVER accept anything from a cold call regardless of number and always call back O2 yourself to check.
