yes but after they had emptied my pay as you go account. each time i opened text from 85222 it cost me 90 pence. i do not understand why something cannot be done about this scammer who it appears has been doing this for several months
I got the same message, and I called the number at the back of the card. They confirmed there was a fraudulent charge and closed the account. It's always a good practice to check, but use the number on your card not the one they send via text message.
"email@example.com Attn:UR MOBILE-PHONE won $500,000 in SOCCER world cup Email: firstname.lastname@example.org"
Where are these messages coming from?
Rang them and also text stop to no avail.

I'm not sure why you need to text this number but I got a text from LA Fitness today asking me to use 66644 to stop the texts.
Instead I contacted them on 0843 170 1099, you can also use 01302 892515 and ask for member services.
I pressed 2 for leaving LA Fitness.
I then ended up asking to be put on the black list so they would not contact me again.
Why shall I pay for sending STOP to these scammers? Lot of people are complaining for this, and criminals continue to steal our money. Why you, so named SMSwatchdog, don't stop their illegal activities? What is the point in your existence?
fraud company. charges before giving any warning on their website for a unreasonable amount of money.
this company's manager that was given to me sounded like: Karina Alice.
this company set up their website to trick people and charges them before giving them clear warnings.
they refused any refund.
very bad and it should be band.
how to stop this service. this give me tips, gossips etc
I replied by telling whoever it is that I was reporting the number...so far I've had to response..so I hope it worked.

Like you I was on a website when a banner popped up and it opened up a new page. Next thing I know I've got this text. If EE charge me, I will be very angry indeed and cancel my direct debit. You should not be able to authorise anything without a pin on a phone.
