OK many thanks. They give out your number to scammers,then take the money for them & deny any responsibility for it! After 15 years a customer, paying my bills every month on time. At least Dick Turpin wore a mask!


Yes, that's a good summary of how this thing works. O2 claim that they only work with 'trusted third parties', but a look at reviews of some of these companies shows huge numbers of complaints about unauthorised payments. O2 are negligent in not protecting customers from these scams.
