Text scam

I am currently being scammed at a rate of £4.50 per week which is by way of text message fro 700046108. I have tried to contact the company with info from Virgin but keep getting answerphone message. I see from earlier posts that Virgin have been able to refund these charges. I did not initiate this and don't even know what the charges are for. I am having to change my mobile number because of this which is a total inconvenience and don't know if I will be charged again yet despite sending a stop message. I was advised not to change my number until I get a refund so feel I am in a catch 22 situation. How can this be allowed to happen

Re: Text scam

Search the call history for you online account, month by month for that 86668 number to see if someone used you phone
