Received the following text message today from +44 7900 031780

O2:We were unable to process your latest bill. In order to avoid fees, please update your payment information via (URL not repeated)

 

Based on other feedback this appears to be a scam.  My direct debit payment has gone through no problem.

 

I have blocked number and reported to 7726.

I also received a text. "We are unable to process your latest bill. In order to avoid fees, please update your payment information via <Link Removed>" from +4475870299. Obviously a scam.

I have no affiliation whatsoever with O2 or any subsidiary companies. Comments posted are entirely of my own opinion. This is not Customer Service so we are unable to help with account specific issues.
