Hi. I was wondering if anyone can be of help.

 

I received a phone call today from someone who claims to be working from O2 today at approximately 15:10pm.

The individual on the phone states that i will receive a 50% discount on the remainder of my sim only contract.

Also, stated that i will get a free gift. Either a tablet or a smart watch.

The individual phone looked very "convincing" until it started to ask for my security code & secrity question.

 

I put the phone down as i feared this looked a scam call.

I recieved the following numbers for calls & texts.

02036956898

02036956714

02036951116

02036089908

02038683532

02036953258

02036956807

02036088097

02036951707

02035140048

02045250915

 

If someone who works for O2 can confirm whether these above numbers are O2 or not & take any necessary action.

 

Any feedback would be greatly appreciated.

 

Thanks

These are not o2 and o2 will not call you to offer discounts or "free gifts" 

 

You need to report these to o2 following the details here Scams and Phishing | Help & Support | O2

Current Phone: Sony XPeria Pro-I and Motorola Razr 5G
I also have a Planet Computers Gemini

I work in IT as an Enterprise Messaging and Collaboration Tools Administrator (Office 365, Slack and much much more) and manage hardware both Mobile and Desktop / laptop, my desk is a bit like PC World

We are all customers and dont have access to any o2 accounts

Thanks for feedback. Much appreciated.

I have emailed the above numbers to O2 scam mailbox, so hopefully they can take the appropriate action.
