Re: Premium SMS Scam

The fault is with the premium company so once you use the contact details Three_Rach gave and it was not subscribed to then you'll get a refund.

Same text same issue here. Clearly a scam if so many people have been targeted without consent. Amazed that a company can just take your money without your consent. Want this issue sorted asap.

@Tomt You need to make the complaint to the right company if anything is to be done about it. 3 have opened that up and provided the details so you should lodge grievances there.

Hey all,

This happened to me too on 27 June and only was added to my bill for this month. €20 added onto my bill for something I never signed up for. I screenshotted all the texts I received before I deleted them and my friends said not to reply, so I didn't. They all came through in one bunch, within seconds of one another and there was no notification about how to stop or unsubscribe, just a phone number to call, which obviously I was afraid to call too, because if the texts are a scam, the phone number most likely is too!

 

What can I do next? It's already been added to my bill, but I've received no texts since that day in June.

Hi All,

 

Thank you for reaching out to us on our 3Community to highlight your experiences. We have forwarded this to the relevant company to investigate.

For those of you wishing to dispute this, contact help@pfi.me via email and include the short-code (5-digit code) specific with the service being charged for.

I previously mentioned the premium service bar that we can add to your account. Before you decide to add this bar please visit our premium rate services blog here - Premium Rate Services FAQs  It outlines exactly what the bar means and what it affects. If you are still happy to have the bar added to your account you can contact us to request this - contact Three

@Smarkham  see above quote I took from Three_Rachel. If you read the thread it tells you exactly what to do and that it's a premium text. See above
