Thanks for posting. Some people are still caught out with these scams.
I thought at first it was legit as I’ve just moved house and was about to ring EE about updating my payment address , so rang them instead
I had a phone call today (I'm on ee) from a random number I rang it back was on the phone 3 seconds- charged £3.

Why are Ee just letting people get scammed?
Also got this:

Probably someone at Ee selling details.
I got a couple of those texts and I'm not even with EE
They have history when it comes to employees selling customer data. A few years ago I received a phone call to discuss an upgrade (it was indeed upgrade time) they knew my name, address, numbers, handset and the end date of my contract. I assumed I was talking to EE when it was in fact 3 masquerading as EE - it was only after they mentioned PAC codes for moving my number, something I had never had to do with an EE upgrade I twigged on and asked who I was speaking too. Turns out 3 bought a CD filled with info on EE customers nearing the ends of their contract.
