Dodgy text?

[ Edited ]

My contact preferences are set like this:

So as I've just received this, either O2 are ignoring my wishes or it's a spam text.

Any ideas @EmilieT @Marjo @Martin-O2 ?

Mate you need to remove your phone number otherwise people will spam you 😉 I reckon it’s a scam if your preferences haven’t been touched according to your screenshot

Looks like a call from a known Spammer that is not O2, @MI5

As I thought mate, so why have O2 given my number out as my preferences clearly state not too @EmilieT, @Marjo @Martin-O2 (yes, I've noticed you've ignored this thread) and before you say it's from somewhere else, O2 are the only ones who know my name associated with this number, guaranteed.

Filled your name and mobile# in on any online forms lately? Even insurance comparison websites have been known to either be "scraped" or to pass on their lists of details...
