Had £3 taken from my credit by this company is there a away of getting back? Its the other half's phone and doesn't know how this happened.
Bodyin8 is a well know 'Payforit' scam which has been reported many times in the past few weeks. You can find specific details of this scam here: http://payforitsucks.co.uk/bodyin8-scam-june-2018/
You need to be aware that while you are connected to the internet via mobile data, your number may be passed by GiffGaff to third parties for charging purposes. The mechanism by which this happens is called 'Payforit'. This can’t happen while you are connected by WiFi.
Once the third party has your number they can make ‘Payforit’ charges to your account and, very unfairly in my opinion, it will be your job to argue for a refund! GiffGaff make no effort to confirm that you have consented to these charges and refuse to help you recover your money.
The Payforit mechanism was intended to make it easy for consumers to purchase goods and services and have them charged to their 'phone bill. Unfortunately Payforit has proven to be very insecure and hardly a day goes by without someone reporting another scam on here.
I have put details of how to deal with these scams on my website at http://payforitsucks.co.uk.
Unfortunately GiffGaff and all of the other networks have no incentive to bring these scams to an end, as they receive a share of the income from them.
The steps you ought to be taking are (with links to detailed instructions):
1. Stop further charges being made
2. Get a refund of any charges already taken
3. Complain to the Phone-paid Services Authority
4. Protect yourself from further 'charge to bill' scams
Let me know if can offer any further help or advice. These scams are a disgrace to the mobile communications industry.
