It's a well known scam.
Block the number and report it free to 7726.
DO NOT follow any links or enter any information.

O2 never text from a mobile number.
If you also received a OTP by text at the same time, you need to change your O2 password immediately as it means the scammers have access to your account.

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.
