Contact an agent here https://giffgaff.com/support/ask if you're concerned, but they can't do anything by ordering a sim

they won't be able to do anything with just ordering a sim card,

 

they can't top it up by using your details or anything like that -

 

if you are worried about it

 

change your password,

 

or if you want you can contact an agent, not sure which option would be best to choose -

 

don't worry.

i tried that but is only a series of drop-down issues, none of which are relevan to me...

One of your friends or family members could have used your phone or computer this is why is always a good idea to log out every time I wouldn't worry too much about it there's not a lot anyone can do hope this helps put your mind at ease

I never have never had anyhing to do with GiffGaff until this email I get thanking me for my order.  Happens the same day I get a letter from a different company about another order I never made. Is definitely fraud. I agree I will not have to foot the bill eventually, but frustrating so hard to report! I am trying to save them from paying out to the criminals.  I shouldn't have to become a member of this forum just to report fraud and say I dont want anything to do wih this company...
