Hi @mrnick,


Welcome to the EE Community.


I'm sorry to hear you have been the victim of fraud.


Our Customer Care Team can't recover your messages if they have been deleted from your device.


If the Police require deleted text messages as part of their investigation, they would need to contact our Police liaison department directly.
