Seen this on another site but a heads up to make sure you check your bank statements for tester amounts being deducted from bank accounts to O2 and other mobile PAYG accounts before being ripped off big style and it doesnt matter if you have a mobile from that provider or not
here is a link to the first page but makes scary reading at the amount of it happening

Its got nothing to do with your network. Destroy all your slips with credit card details etc on it inc statements. Never dump. Plus sometimes a member of the stores staff copies your details ( illegally) and sells or gives your numbers and pin to Friends. The criminal groups get the credit card details buy goods like top ups or internet shop and then sell it to Mates for 1/2 or 2/3 price and pockets the cash. While you get the bill. Quite literlly they make millions on these rackets . Some groiups operating in the UK included the Tamil Tigers as well as various Irish groups are know to opperate these scams on an industrial scale to fund their Causes.
