02080901925 This phone number is calling people saying that they are calling from O2! When I asked the person to prove to me that they are calling from O2. They could not tell me my name or wot plan I was on.

It's a well known scam.
Block the number and report it free to 7726.
DO NOT follow any links or enter any information.

They also send text messages but O2 never text from a mobile number, so watch for that too.

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.
