 Ihave a scam message on my phone asking me to use the link to O2-ACCOUNTS.COM.  Will O2 do anything about this?

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

O2 never text from a mobile number.

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.
