CUSTOMERS of a mobile network provider 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 this is not true.

Michael Watson said his wife received one of the texts and alerted EE.

He told people on Facebook: "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 and that if you receive the message to forward it to 7726 and it will be looked into.

Other scams that people have experienced this year so far include one where scammers were posing as online retailer Amazon.

Police last year warned of an Amazon Prime scam where victims receive an automated phone call claiming they have been charged for an Amazon Prime subscription.
