This is a scam and i would suggest forwarding the text to 7726 which is o2's fraud team

Also contact Action Fraud https://www.actionfraud.police.uk/

If you entered any personal data or passwords, then please immediately change these.

If you entered any Payment details, please contact your bank as well to inform them that you have been sent a scam text.
