I was playing a suduko when win trivia free competition came on screen I entered,
next day £4.50 was take from mobile, after numerous calls taking over two hours to WIN TRIVIA 03332026672 they said they would cancel but no refund. Phoned Payplus 0800500212 (you will need short code from your provider so Payplus can block your number) also action fraud 03001232040 who are investigating this company we also rang Offcom 030012333333, hope this helps and under no circumstance text them.

Rcvd text from this #, "Chase Fraud" wanting to know if an attempted charge on my card was legitimate, telling me to text 1 for yes and 2 for no. I did not reply to text but called phone number on the back of my Chase card. Text was actually from them, trying to check on a charge. We HAD made the charge (but husband typed in wrong expiration date on the first try so that must have been what pinged it for them) so I confirmed that and everything is fine. If you have a Chase card, I would not reply to text but I would call to find out what's happening.
I don't want that type of nonsense msg
Keep receiving texts from this number referring to my bundle which made me think it was from my provider. Being charged 1.25 per text.
