Received following text "O2: We were unable to process your latest Bill.  In order to avoid fees, update your billing information via: <Link Removed>" mobile no. +447732133977. I haven't replied as I think it's false. Am I right to think this?

@Sarah8 It's a scam. Loads of posts about it if you scroll through the pages on the forum. Forward the text to 7726 and then block the number.

@Carlzz79 

Aee help here Guide: Have you fallen for or been conned into a premium rate scam? What to do next 

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.

Ring customer services and get them to put a premium call bar on your account.
Get your money back follow the guides in the link given you by MI5.

Get customer services to bar direct billing to your account too which will stop scammers billing your phone account.
Best wishes @Carlzz79

I must send more of the junk I get to SPAM (7726), good advice @Bambino!

 

Now if only I could forward those pre-recorded or silent calls I occasionally receive somewhere...

The SPAM number actually corresponds to the old telephone dials with letters and numbers. 7726 actually spells out SPAM.

 

Just thought I'd educate the illiterates amongst you LOL
