@martin251

 

Thank you for the warning.

It's to easy to innocently get caught by these.

I received one not long back, fortunately I suspected it wasn't legitimate.

Yeah, I received one of these texts a few weeks ago.  I blocked the number and reported it. 

 

I seem to be getting quite a few of these sort of texts lately.  Pretending to be from places such as giffgaff, Argos, etc. Smiley Mad
