    Just got this email claiming to be from O2 telling me I need to pay my bill and how I've gone over my minutes bla bla bla. The thing is I with EE LOL
    Thought I 'd share the email with you, the email came from O2 Billing (tv@tv-consult.com) all the links are to O2 apart from the first one "look at your bill" which linked to punjabbc.com/modules/mod_araticlhess/myo2_account

    Dear Customer,
    Your O2 bill for 28/05/14 is now ready. You can look at your bill here.
    In total, your bill for this month comes to £384,87. We'll request this amount from your chosen account on, or just after, the date in your bill.
    To see your bill, you'll need the username and password you were given when you joined O2. If you've forgotten them, we can give you a reminder.
    Is your bill more than you were expecting ?
    If so, here's a few reasons why this might be:

    • You could have gone over the minutes, texts or data that's in your allowance.
    • You could have called or sent texts to numbers that can't be taken from your allowance such as International, 0800, 0845 numbers or directory enquiries.
    • You have used your phone for calls, text or data whilst abroad.
    To view any charges outside your allowance click here
    If you have any questions, just ask Lucy. She's our online virtual agent. You can also find out more about what's included in your bill with an online demonstration.
    Best regards
    O2

    I've seen these for the last couple of years now with one twist or another. Usually it's a "missed delivery", or some kind of bill statement like that, Paypal was a pretty big target for a while. My favorite is when I got the email summoning me to Jury Duty, which would've been fine, and even believable, except for 1 small problem. The email claimed I should report to my local courthouse in Los Angeles, I live on the complete opposite side of the country, roughly 3500 miles away. LOL. All I needed to do was download the documents telling me when and where to show up.
