Fake text, scam?

Hey guys, I'm new on here so am unsure if I've posted in the correct place (sorry if I havent)

 

I paid my phone bill a few days ago and have now recieved a text message saying this:

EE:We were unable to process your latest bill. In order to avoid fees, update your billing information via: https://ee-update.ref0135.com?ee=2

 

Has anyone else received this and is it a known scam?

Re: Fake text, scam?

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.

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.

To phone EE: The local rate landline number +44 207 362 0200 or Freephone +44 800 079 8586 - Option 1 for Mobiles; Option 2 for 4G WiFi; Option 3 for Home Broadband & EE TV.

ISPs: 1999: Freeserve 48K Dial-Up => 2005: Wanadoo 1 Meg BB => 2007: Orange 2 Meg BB => 2008: Orange 8 Meg LLU => 2010: Orange 16 Meg LLU => 2011: Orange 20 Meg WBC => 2014: EE 20 Meg WBC
