Everyone needs to be aware of the PAYFORIT scam aided and abetted by giffgaff
Yesterday I had £4.50 stolen from my account by PAYFORIT (giffgaff take a percentage of this so therefore are complicit in the transaction)
How did this happen?
A search led to a page that automatically entered my phone number (helpfully provided by giffgaff without my knowledge or explicit consent . Then automatically when I closed the page it subscribed me for £4.50 a week until cancelled. )
Giffgaffs response was **edited** not our problem. See terms and conditions
1. We can do whatever we like
2. You can do nothing about it!
So thanks giffgaff you're profiting from a scam which you know has ripped many people off but hey not our fault
You gave my phone number out which is my personal data!
Nothing you can do sorry
Even better for the giffgaff scam supporters
Distance selling rules don’t apply to premium phone stuff
So all of you out there need to be careful and aware that this pay for it scam is alive and well and totally supported by giffgaff
If giffgaff had any concern for its clients they would have an opt out of giving out your phone number to scamming websites that request it, but no can’t do that!
