Hi @hburrell

 

This is a phishing scam! 

 

Please DON'T click on any of the links- ever. 

 

Whenever you receive anything- whether by text or email, claiming to be an instituition- ALWAYS verify with the instituition directly FIRST- before clicking on anything. In this case, you came straight to giffgaff to check and verify, which is excellent! 

 

These are scammers trying to gain your log-in details which in return will provide them access to your card and banking details as all of this is available under your payments page. 

 

Don't worry though, you're safe as long as you don't click the link and don't fill in any of the information.
