Do not respond to the text message.

 

Unless the link starts giff.ly it is definitely a scam.

@mammabear77 

This is a scam text designed to get your details for fraudulent use
It may appear to be from giffgaff, however the link takes you to a cloned/fake giffgaff log-in page


If you've entered any details follow the steps below

@mammabear77 

As you proceeded to the stage where they're asking for your bank details, it suggests you logged in on the link, please change your password on your giffgaff account at the very least,  

https://giffgaff.com/profile/details#passwd

 

Also change passwords/emails on any other accounts outside of giffgaff that might have the same login information
