Payforit / KKOMobile, "text STOP to..." scam.

I must have clicked on an add or something when my phone was in my pocket, because I got a text yesterday saying...

 

"FreeMsg: Thank you for subscribing to KKO Mobile for £4.50 per week from MyDoo untill you text STOP to 64546. HELP? 08458341119"

 

Will it be able to charge me if I have no credit and top up using goodybags? And how can I stop it for sure? I've read about people not being able to stop it, and the text number I just tried sending "STOP" to and it keeps saying message failed to send.

 

So yeah, what's the deal here?

No, they can't charge you of you have no credit

Spam Texts:

AVOID replying to these texts as they may incur CHARGES to you

Forward the spam messages to 7726 for FREE, they will investigate the sender and hopefully stop them being sent to you in future

For further information, see this guide... http://community.giffgaff.com/t5/Help-Ask-the-community-got-stuck/What-to-do-if-you-receive-SPAM-tex...

It can not charge you if you have no credit, but as soon as you top up, it will take the lot.
Check this company out and contact them to stop this.
I do not understand how you easily have accepted this charge and in the long run it may now be easier to get a new sim and start again.

My advice is to forward the spam messages to 7726 and they will attempt to stop them. (It's free btw)

Best not to reply directly, as you may be charged for doing so.
