Am I being scammed?

I have recently received this message from a 2081 number stating the following: 


Hi Olivia, EE here. Did you know you've spent over £26.91 on 2.25GB of data in the last 3 months? We think you might be better suited to a 4GB plan. Switch over for £10 extra a month and get an additional 3GB of data. Just reply YES before 2019-01-04 and we'll do the rest. Text STOP to 1221 to opt out of marketing.


Thanks for selecting to change your price plan to Essential Plan 4GB GBP28, this will start on your next bill date 2019-01-04. Visit for further details.


After these messages, I pressed on the link without thinking and entered my login details into the EE pop up which redirected me to an error page. 


I want to know if this is a genuine EE number or whether it is a scam. I have already reported the number to 7726. Thank you.

Re: Am I being scammed?

The domain of that link is genuine for EE. For me it only goes to EE's Pay monthly price plans but that's probably cuz I'm not responding to a received offer.


On the face of it it all looks pukka. A scam would direct you to a non-EE domain page that looks like EE.


What was the full no. the msg came from?
