Beware - received this text message today fromt this number: +447881205664

 

O2:We were unable to process your latest bill. In order to avoid fees, please update your payment information via: [link removed]

 

Link looks legit apart from a couple of spelling mistakes! 

 

Can't find how to report it to O2, so thought I'd make you all aware...

Literally 1000's of these sent out daily @PaulMeadows across all networks, but they are all short staffed and unable to deal with tracing them.

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.
