Real text or not?

Hi,

I have just received a text stating my installation date needs to be confirmed, to text back saying Yes or No.

Is this a normal process? 

Number was 07800 002204.

If you think about it, what real harm could a message like this do if you replied either answer answer. Nothing.

Re: Real text or not?

If you’re due to have installation of services or a tech to call to fix a problem then yes it’s genuine.
If not then either the text has been sent to the wrong number or it’s suspect. If you click yes do then reply back asking for account details?
