In the last few weeks I've had messages from different unknown numbers saying they have received multiple calls and to stop contacting them. I've not made these calls and they are not in my call log so have no idea what's going on. I've had the same number for the last 11 years and it's never happened before. Anyone else had this happened? What can be done about it?

Sounds like someone is spoofing your number, in order to perpetrate a scam or for other nefarious reasons.

The only option is to report it to o2, they may change your number.

call 202, when it comes to the reason you are calling, stay silent for 15 seconds and you will be taken to the keypad options.
Press 2 for Everything Else

Press 5 for More Options
Press 7 for Anything Else which will put you though to someone.when it comes to the reason you are calling, stay silent for 15 seconds and you will be taken to the keypad options.

I would call customer services

@Sparrow As per the advice given to you by @madasaf1sh, if there is an option for Fraud when you call, use that. 

I DO NOT WORK FOR O2
