This is just a short heads up that fake O2 Shop emails are in circulation at the moment, in the form of a “security update” asking for login credentials on the back of an “O2 account update” the recipient is supposed to have made. They’re pretty bare bones in terms of how they look, and you’ll notice that in the below example GMail flags it as spam so hopefully lots of other mail service providers will be doing the same thing.

You can now check the progress of your account at My O2. Just go to [url removed] and enter your username and password. If you’ve forgotten these, we can send you a reminder here too. Once you’ve signed in, go to My account and follow the instructions.

As with so many of these fire and forget spam campaigns, the bulk of them seem to lead to currently AWOL phish pages so they’re likely being taken offline at a fair old pace. For now, batten down the hatches and – as always – treat random mails asking for login credentials with large portions of suspicion, especially when – as above – they’re referencing changes made to your account that you haven’t actually made.
