Potential Scam?

Just want to ask or highlight potential scam just got a text message 'Your contract will be suspended if your PAC code is not updated. Login to My02 to make the required changes: o2account.co.uk
Your payment method has expired'

Is this legitimate?

Definitely a scam. You don't update your PAC.

That's such a pathetic attempt at a scam, it's laughable !

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.
