Not sure there is any point in doing this as nobody seems to have money reimbursed and yet on and on the scam goes. What are Ofcom doing about it? I found an amount of £10 on my calls. Most definitely not made this. If I don't get my money back I am left with no alternative but to go to the broadsheet newspapers. Perhaps then when more people kick off something will finally be done about it.

Yes, they ripped me off too, but luckily to a small amount. Ring your provider and get this amount put into a fraudulent case for all of you who had money stolen from you. Or contact the police.

Hi for the last two months I have had charges for the above number, this month I rang my service provider and he has stopped this number from contacting me, but people should not be charged for texts or phone calls that they have not instigated.

thank you

i received a text message on 5th february at 0222am from 79069 saying 'your receipt will arrive shortly'. i did not know what is all about as i have not buy anything via phone and the number was an odd one. when i checked my orange account i was very surprised to see that i was charged with 5 gbp for receiving that text. i called orange and they checked the above number and gave me the company name MIT and their details saying i have to contact them and unsubscribe and that this is most probably a scam - 08702480277, customcare@migcan.com
i never used their service and i do not know whether i will have my 5 gbp reimbursed.
very annoying thing.
i need help, please.
if anyone knows anything, please let me know.
many thanks.

I had applied online to become a secret shopper for ASDA and received a free text message with a pin number to enter on the website, immediately after entering the pin number I received two text messages I didn't understand the content of the messages so I delete them only to find out this morning that when T-Mobile send me account info that I had £6 extra on my account. I always stay within my call allowance. Phoned T-Mobile who gave me the number 0870240277 to ring and ask for a refund. I don't know if the number will cost me premium rate to call a bit hesitant to do so. Does anyone know if the number charged at a premium rate? Please advice.

just called Virgin Mobile (very helpful)
as my son has been charged £3 per week
since January, Virgin have credited the charges and put a block on all premium calls or texts, also she advised me to send the STOP message and they have proof i sent one so will no longer pay this company for any futher messages & Virgin have also put a cap on his Mobile now of £50 per month, so they cannot just charge £20 or £40 etc etc
Thanks Virgin Great help

I was charged £10 for a text from 700074002. T-mobile will not refund this as they say the charge was from the company who sent it who I never registered with and the text was totally unsolicited. A similar charge was made for another number. T mobile's response is useless. Apparently I should have immediately texted STOP or called T mobile and if I receive further texts beginning 70... or 7000... I should delete and contact T mobile.

Son has been receiving messages at £1.50 per text which has led to bill of nearly £1000.00 how do they get away with it. The worst bit is T-mobile never notified me and let it happen!! Something needs to be done about this company. Ive tried ringing and no-one answers but they want you to leave a mobile contact number - I wonder why!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

My daughter has been scammed for £30 I have phoned 02 who says they can put a bar on it but I have to pay the 30 The only reason I caught on was because 02 sent me an email telling me this bill was abnormally high for so early in the billing month. Thank you 02

I started receiving texts from a company, something to do with games.
I didn't request them and I have been charged £15.25 for receiving the texts.
O2 gave me this number to complain which I am sure it would be a very long call and they would make even more money
