I have received a text from O2 advising me that the free Disney account is coming to an end I will be charged if I don’t cancel. I have no Disney account with O2 - I have it free with Amazon Prime and have cancelled this one already as I never use it. When I looked at my extras the Disney is not there. There is a link to click on from the o2 text but obvs reluctant to click please advise

It's obviously a phising scam if you don't have Disney.

Block the number and do not follow any links.
Forward the scam text to 7726 - It's free.

Also, as an additional check, O2 never text from a mobile number.
