Re: Unwanted charge texts

i nearly fell for something like this. comp on facebook by legitimate company. click on link. they want mobile number but in very small print in the terms it says 'you will be signed with our partner for amazing prizes at 4.99 a month. needless i closed the tab down. that's how they get you.
