I received a text purporting to be from O2. It said that I was currently out of my minimum contract term and my Airtime Plan is £35.61. I don't recognise this figure. It also said that I could choose to stay on the same tariff or move to another tariff or switch to another provider.

For more information and some tariffs to consider i had to contact http://v.o2.co.uk/R1a1I7x8.  Is this a genuine O2 site?

@DavyJ 

The link just returns an error, so although have to tell you when you have reached your minimum term, I would be suspicious of this text.

Forward the scam number to 7726 - It's free.
