Re: Premium rate text from 700146429,

Hi SueSwan,

 

Welcome to the communitySmiley Happy

 

Sorry to hear your getting premium rate texts.

 

A quick Google search of this number 700146429 shows several links to articles describing many different people being tricked into signing up for these messages.

 

After replying you wont always get a text back to say the service has been stopped. I can check a database of numbers we have access to which may contain the details for this company.

 

Have you go the number you text STOP to for me to check this for you?

 

Speak soon.

Re: Premium rate text from 700146429,

Hi SueSwan,

 

Thanks for your reply,

 

I was hoping to give you some information about the company sending these messages, so I have checked this number against a database we have of these types of numbers but this one is currently not listed.

 

As long as you've text the message 'STOP' you should be ok.

 

Have you received any more text messages from this number since you sent the message to stop?

 

Cheers

Re: Premium rate text from 700146429,

That's the difficult part, we don't get any texts from the number, they only show up on the bill. So I was waiting for the next bill to check it.

I couldn't find any records of the phone number either. Hence my frustration. It's like being mugged!!

Re: Premium rate text from 700146429,

Hi SueSwan,

 

Thanks for the further information.

 

What you've described is very strange and shouldn't be happening.

 

At this point if you get any further discrepancies on the bill I would speak with our mobile team on 789.

 

If these phantom charges are showing yet you received a text from this number this definitely needs to be checked out. 

 

Let me know how it goes.

 

Speak soon

I've just had a text this afternoon, first one as far as I can see. It says to text STOP to 64546 it's Jamster Tone club. £4.50 per week. For help it says ring 02071369911
I've just text stop to the number given and received confirmation that the subscription has been terminated.

Re: Premium rate text from 700146429,

Hi SueSwan,

 

Thanks for the update.

 

Sounds promising. If you've had a confirmation back the SMS should stop.

 

Hopefully that's the end of it for you.

 

Any further issues with this just let us know.

 

Many thanks
