Today I received multiple phone calls - which I recorded - from people claiming to be from o2 asking me to use a password they created and for me to use it to change my o2 password using an email they sent to me. They claimed my sim card would soon be blocked due to some change o2 were making and a new sim card would be sent to me. I refused to do this and blocked their calls. is any of this real? I have recorded all the phone calls with them. Their voices were either indian or pakistani speaking english.
