I got a scam email this morning from an international number relating to my 02 payment. I accidentally clicked onto the link. What do I do about it. I have been unable to contact anybody by phone to get any advice and I am worried that my security of information may have been compromised.

The number was +447818795256 and the message read 02:We were unable to process your latest bill. In order to avoid fees, please update your payment information via: <Link Removed>

@APKH 

It's a well known scam
Block the number and report it free to 7726.
Don’t open any links or enter any information.

Did you enter any details after opening the link @APKH or did you close it straight away?
Keep an eye on your bank accounts and mobile bill for a while to monitor for suspicious activity...

Please note, this is not customer services and we cannot access your account. Do not publish personal details (email, phone number, bank account).
