Scams and O2

Well, I keep getting O2 scam calls and been enjoying making them squirm (and waste their time on me) on the phone, today I got a call slightly different. 

They sent me a link to an email mail I gave them (I have it for crap like this). I saw the domain (o2discount.info) it is one month old. I saw who was hosting it and called O2 To put a stop to it. I usually do that to prevent people being scammed. Mostly is delivery companies like DPD, Royal Mail, etc… it takes me a few hours to get  the hosting companies to deactivate the websites. 

well, I called 202, got a “thank you for letting us know” and half a day later the site it is still on. 

Does anyone at O2 actually care?

Nothing happens quickly with O2.

You can report such issues to OFCOM by texting the details to 7726.

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.

The site is obviously designed to get your MyO2 username and password.

I doubt standard customer services will do much

I'll ask our Forum Manager to take a look but it will be Monday

This is not O2 and we are all customers here similar to yourself and cannot answer account type queries.
