I received a text purporting to be from Argos saying I had a refund of £245 due. Was immediately suspicious as haven't shopped there for a while. The link looked reasonable but not right. Investigation found it leads to a surprisingly realistic website but based in Tokyo. BE WARNED
Thanks for the warning there @dav1d1
Theres so many scams about these days you have to be so carefull.
All the best and thanks again.
SPAM texts can be reported free of charge I'm told according to OFCOM by forwarding to 7726 (that spells SPAM 🙂 ) [or 87726 if you are on Vodafone] Do NOT reply to a spam text.
Delete it afterwards!
Thank you for the warning / info ..... far to many of these scams around , the more warnings the better .
For sharing important info.
I received one of these texts just before Christmas. I reported it.
Had one simalar from sainsbury in Mayfield, tippled straight away, there ain't a sainsbury in Mayfield, they can keep there £150 that I won in competition, never entered anything!!.!.
