Please note you have tried to contact me regarding a change of date of birth request on my account.  This was not me, this is Fraudsters trying to attempt to get a phone with my details.

 

I haven’t at any time made a request to change my date of birth.  

you had sent an email asking me to log into my account to send proof of change, however I can’t see a part where I can advise it is fraudsters, so I’m contacting you through this “Contact Us” section.

 

Thanks

 

Martin

If you think you’ve been the victim of fraud – whether it’s because you’ve given details to someone over the phone, or clicked on a link in a suspicious text or email there are things you can do:

Contact your bank if you think you may have given out financial information. They can help protect your account and stop transactions.

Change your account and online account passwords. Not just your O2 account. All of them.

Forward fraudulent texts to O2 for free on 7726.

Contact Action Fraud on 0300 123 2040.

Call your Virgin Media or O2 customer services number if you think somebody’s taken out a contract using your details.

Virgin Media customers can phone 150 from their landline or 0345 454 1111 from any other phone.

O2 customers can call 202 from their O2 phone or 0344 809 0202 from any other phone.

You can block the number that called you, or any number you think may be suspicious.
