I got this earlier as well. Replied with STOP after the first text, got nothing back. Then I got more texts. €20 has gone from my credit. I called the company to request a refund as I know Three can't. The SP have said that they can't find anything associated with my number. They suggested that I probably have my number wrong? Absolute scam artists. Next stop is Comreg.

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
@stue84 Can you see the quote from Three_Rachel? Read that for info on what to do about the charge and how to apply the block.

@Mac_n_cheese I read that thanks very much. I emailed ComReg who asked me to get in touch with help@pfi, which I did. They confirmed that I was charged (strange that whoever I spoke to yesterday said I wasn't.) I requested a refund and they said they can't provide one as they are just the billing side . So now they want me to email email@example.com to outline my reasons for requesting a refund.
The hoops you need to jump through to try get your own money back. They probably just hope people forget about it.

@Marko1 yeah okay but you got your refund also (the end of that email indicates you can't share it. I reckon you'll need to remove it or just paraphrase or you might be putting yourself at risk
