I’ve just had a text message from +447340818136 stating that O2 are unable to process my bill. In order to avoid fees please update your payment information via: [link removed]

 

Is this a scam?

It's a well known scam.

Block the number and ignore.

Do not open any links.

Report the text by forwarding to 7726 (free).

Please edit your post to remove the link too, so no one else can access it. 

Click on options, then edit.

Very common.

Please follow same advice.
