Giffgaff keeps taking money off my credit although my mobile data is turned off and I haven't made any calls or texts. Go figure?

@topcop that's strange if your mobile data is off.

You can also ask an agent to investigate. They will know exactly where your credit went.

They will respond within 24hrs.

I bet it's a text scam - if so it's not Giffgaff taking it, if you accidentally signed up to one of those they can take it straight off your credit. You (or somebody else using your phone) probably clicked a bad link on Facebook or somewhere. They can read you number directly from their website and take your credit without any more imput on your part.

It should be illegal but at the moment it doesn't seem to be. There's some information here:

how much is going missing at a time? £4.50?


if yes you have subscribed to a premium text messaging service, you need to send STOP to the 5 digit number that sent you the text message or follow info at the bottom of the message on how to cancel the subscription, it is not a gg charge

No it was 4p. This isn't the first time it has happened. My mobile data is completely disabled for all apps as I use a mifi data box instead of Giffgaffs data. I have no idea but it must be a giffgaff fault.
