Text message from EE on VM contract

Just a query, had a text message from EE (could be a hoax) on 1/12/2019 it said (quote):

"EE: We were unable to process your latest bill. In order to avoid fees, update your billing information via: https://ee-update.ref01**.com/?ee=2"

** are numbers removed.

 

Has anyone else had this,first time for me, never had EE, but I know that VM piggy back on it, to me it smells like a hoax, can VM services be trusted if it is a hoax???

 

Regards

Re: Text message from EE on VM contract

Thanks DJ, as I thought, never had these from my previous mobile telecoms company, ever, had a mobile for 20 years +, maybe I have been lucky all those years, but since this has only been on the VM network, it makes me think that my number (same for 20+ years) has been put on a list of somesort, without my knowledge. (should remove my foil hat 😶)

 

Regards

Re: Text message from EE on VM contract

Hello

I certainly understand what you are saying, a lot of these scams use a random number generator, which just sends out mass texts, I get them all the time on land line a few try have tried to baffle me with tech, well not to sound over confident, but being in IT as long as I have they don't get away with it, I had a few texts as well just block them.
