Re: Charges

Sounds like you have been swallowed up by a pay for it "scam".
Read the information on the links below to find out how to stop it and get a refund. You can also apply for a ban on all charge to mobile methods by contacting customer services.

Thanks.
Was made easier by doing it all on a laptop. Doubt the same would be said if I was on mobile...

Well I just replied to another poor soul scammed out of money and I managed to type both websites plus MI5's petition, not without edits, though. But nothing to do with the new forum layout, just my bad typing joy
