SB7 Mobile are one of O2's "Trusted Partners" who operate Payforit scams on their network.

O2 leak numbers to these "partners" when you use mobile data to access the internet. The partners are then allowed to make charges to those accounts without any verfication of consent.

O2 take approximtely 30% of the charges just for faclitating this fraud.

 

Do you know the name of the "service" you were allegedly subscribed to?

 

Make sure that you stop the charges by sending a STOP ALL text to the five digit number asociated with the charges.

 

Ask O2 to put a "charge to mobile" bar on your account to remove your vulnrbility to Payforit scams.

 

Insist on a FULL refund from SB7 Mobile, unless of course they can PROVE that you entered into a contract with them.

Hello Paul, this has happened to me.  I have been ill for 4 years and I have found it at least goes back 3!  Possibly even further and maybe a 1000 pounds or more.
