Morning fellow giffgaffers if you receive a suspicious/phishing/spam text did you know you can forward it to 7726. They will look into it and advise you if you need to take any further action.
Easy way to remember the number is it spells SPAM on standard telephone ๐Ÿ˜Š hope this info is helpful to you ๐Ÿ˜Š๐Ÿ˜Š
