Scam warning Giff Gaff SIM card

  john bunyan 20:26 09 Feb 2020

My wife and I have iPhones using Giff Gaff as sim supplier. Today my wife had a mobile phone message that said words to the effect that “ The new SIM card you ordered is ready for activation” If you haven’t ordered on log in - then it gave a http web address that looked exactly like Giff Gaffs log in screen. At that point we smelt a rat. I tried phoning the mobile no on a ex directory phone - it was an e mobile one with an answering machine.

I contacted her Giff gaff account via PC , and changed her log on password on the genuine site then deleted the offending message.

This scam is on Google but very realistic

If you are on Giffgaff pay as you go you might well want to review it as they are increasing their PAYG prices by 66-100% later this month.
