I have just received a text from O2 saying my PAC has expired and if I don't follow the link within the text my contract will be suspended, I'm just curious if this is a scam or O2

It's a scam. 

Ignore the text. 

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

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.
