you receive a hoax message pretending to be from O2 like this,
it's important to know it's a phishing attack like the bank
hoaxes and not a real message from O2. If it
really was from the real O2, they
would know your name and maybe even your telephone number!

a very similar formula to the bank hoax type of
thing where they are trying to fool you into giving away your
personal password account details etc. If you had clicked on the
links in the rogue message you would not end up at O2 but instead
would be directed to http;/st#annes,com. Try to avoid being
caught out by this kind of thing. Also see other examples of iffy
e-mails stuffed and mounted at the Rogues
the meantime, real Mobile Phones are
available from the genuine places advertised here, including O2
