“EE: We were unable to process your latest bill. In order to avoid fees, update your billing information”. A link is provided at the end of the text but if you click the link in the text, they’ll ask for bank details & are in a position to clean your account out.
EE are not the only provider/customers they are targeting. O2 are also having the same problem and both providers are trying to put a stop to it.
You can report the text free of charge to EE (or whichever provider it has supposedly come from) by forwarding the text and number it has come from to 7726.
If you receive a text like this please report it to your provider. Never give your details out. Always check with your provider directly first using their official customers service number.
