Thanks. I'd imagine it's safe to give them the details they are after for Paypal. I'd imagine they can only put money in, not take it out.

@aneczqaa0 If you got the message then you've been charged. THree_Rachel has already given instructions on how to dispute it and to pm to get it blocked. Three cannot dispute for you because it's not their charge its to the company. You can see what Three_Rachel has said by reading it on this thread: https://forum.three.ie/t5/Prepay/Premium-SMS-charge/m-p/36170#M11388
