I received a text from 'EE' yesterday telling me that you are unable to verify my account and I need to log on via a link to verify everything.
Just wondering if this is a real thing or spam?
@Nikki_L : It's a scam! There are many of these going the rounds. EE would never send you a msg asking you to click on a link in order to update your a/c.
Don't go there but what was the link?
Report it to EE by forwarding it to 7726 (S.P.A.M. on your keypad).
That domain, faked to look like EE, was only created yesterday in Malaysia.

You have done the right thing by checking on the community if the text is from EE.
As @XRaySpeX has advised we would never ask you for your PIN or password by text or email.
If you still have the message can you forward this to 7726, and then delete the message, we will be able to get this investigated.
Don't click on any of the links within the message - if you have clicked on the link and entered your password details, change any log in details that use the same password.
