CUSTOMERS of mobile network EE are warning others that there is a scam targeting them.

EE customers have received texts saying there is a problem with their bill, but the network provider says these texts are not genuine.

He said: "Do not click on the link. Give EE a call. They are aware of this."

EE has said on its online forum that these messages can be very convincing.
