@Kitcazz : Of course many have. It's a common phishing attempt to get your a/c details, that you are always warned about. Providers never ask you to click on a link to confirm your details.

 

1. Ignore it. 2 Bin it. 3. Never click on a link in a text you can't trust.

I received a text from ee today saying my account was being suspended so yes I clicked on the link when I saw how much info was required I got worried and came out of it. Any idea what I should now do?

Good Morning @Trina1.

Can you see what number the text was from?

 

As @XRaySpeX has already said, if you're worried about the link you clicked then I'd recommend getting in touch with our Mobile Care team.

Just forward it to 7726 which happens to spell SPAM on the keypad.
