o2 Wanting To Protect My Phone?

Just received a text from O2-UK saying:

O2 Ref: Site No. RTo2L***. Your security code is (****)

If your not in direct contact with O2, please call 202 now so we can protect your phone. Thanks

 

Whats all that about? I'm on PAYG and have a antivirus installed already on my phone?

Is this fake??

Thanks

@Baza It sounds fake to me. Do not respond. Customer service is very busy today, but call if you can to check. Also take a look at this link: https://community.o2.co.uk/t5/How-to-Guides/Have-you-fallen-for-or-been-conned-into-a-premium-rate-s...

I DO NOT WORK FOR O2

Hi @Baza

It seems fake as the PAYG number is 4445 not 202 (which is for contracts) Just block the number)
