Without see the content of the Text we have no way of checking if it was from us, chances are it was a Phishing Text, you can find out more around dealing with Phishing mails/ Texts here.
I've just had exacty the same text from same no. Googled it, found it was Virgin. Is Virgin unaware that not identifying who sends a text will result in few responses given the no. of scams on mobile phones?
Just had the below text, too
A quick google also pulled up a page on it being a scam number!!!
If, as a customer, we are supposed to call every company that we receive a text off (just to check if it’s real) I have 2 requests;
1. Make it so we can talk to someone within seconds of calling - not have to jump through 15 rounds of ‘press 1 for…’
2. Pay me a wage to do your work!
Dont send stupid messages by text. Anyone following this up is likely to be more complacent with the next one that they receive!
