I have received calls today purporting to be from o2 - the 1st one came from 01245 892034 and the caller was saying something about a 30% discount linked to covid on bills going forward - he sent 2 texts and wanted me to read back the one time code which aroused  suspicion.  As soon as I ended the call I had a 2nd call from 01233 466025 referring to the 1st one and asking for the code - I said I was not giving the code until I had verified that it was not a fraud.  I tried calling on 202 but the automated system seemed to be unable to recognise the words "attempted fraud".  Is there a genuine offer for 30% reduction in bills or was this an attempted fraud please.  We checked the numbers are both came up as neutral on the fraud checker.

Thanks in advance

thank you very much for the prompt reply - that confirmed my gut instincts that it was not "right"
