Scam Text Help

Hi (new person here) 

I just recieved a text from EE stating the following 

“ We failed to take your Direct Debit this month. Visit http://bit.ly/2EUFKuX to update your payment details. “ 

 

My direct debit always goes out on the 10th without fail and I know I have money in my bank (I logged in and checked). I did click the link however I closed the page instantly and opened the app instead to check bills. Everything seems normal. Can anyone advise? I’m guessing this is a scam text? Thank you

It's a scam. As long as you didn't give any details, you'll be fine. You could follow the advice here if you wanted, and report it.

@Eirflower   Do not use any link provided in anything from emails to text messages.   Unless you are expecting that message.    EE will never send you a link to login to your account.

The domain, faked up to look like EE, was only created yesterday in Malaya & hopefully will be gone tomorrow. 

 

To report it, forward the text to 7726 (SPAM on your keyboard).
