Re: Receiving premium texts

Hi mollymegft4

 

they often use a shortcode (about 5 numbers). Texting back "STOP" or “STOP ALL” should end the service.

If you are not sure who is providing the service, post the number on here and someone may be able to tell you more.

If all else fails you can complain to PhonePayPlus - 0300 30 300 20
They are the UK regulator for premium rate SMS.
