Re: 44700035505 premium unsolicited ongoing texts received at £1.50 each
I was a victim of this scam in December 2007. Eventually I tracked down the scammer and received a tatty £5 note in "compensation" for their "mistake". But if they managed to scam a million victims out of £1.50, that is nothing.
Phone companies should block these messages unless the recipient gives permission. Advising victims to reply STOP after being defrauded is just not good enough.
