They can do lots with it but what they are after is your bank details so they can empty your bank account.
They aren't interested in your O2 account it's just a way to get what they really want from you.
So is contacting your bank and asking them to be vigilant in case of a scam ...the way to go then?
Obviously the OP would be checking but it could be too late unless he has forewarned the bank...?
So. Some advice if you don't mind. These guys have my full name and title, date of birth and email address. They also have my phone number, type, contract details, IMEI and PUK code. Nice.
Should I get rid of the email? What can they do with the phone information? Can they use it to make calls with another phone on my account? Maybe I'm paranoid but I don't know what people can do with this level of detail.
Definitely NOT get rid of the email. I would print a hard copy then delete it.
In the meantime I would use a different pc, perhaps one at your work if you have a good IT system, and change ALL of your passwords. I would then follow the advice above about cleaning your pc before using it again.
At this point it is probably nothing but to avoid risk.
Bank should be made aware but any decent bank would prevent the transfer of large funds to foreign bank accounts anyway.
Indeed...and mine is excellent but the scammers may do it in smaller amounts. I had three separate hacks within 14hrs on mine. Took a total of £1400 out. Last one stopped (and all refunded) but I personally would look for some extra vigilance from my bank
