Re: Suspicious Text

Good news for sure.
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.

Re: Suspicious Text

I have just received the same text but stupidly clicked on the link I’m the text (although pleased to say I didn’t enter any info). Will my account be ok?

@RF17 As long as no details were entered, you'll be OK.

Re: Suspicious Text

It's been well documented on here and thousands of these texts are going out daily. I do hope no one clicks on the link or gives out sensitive information unknowingly.

Could you edit your post and remove the link please.
