SCAM

Just had a message from the +44 7960 688589 saying that my payment didn’t get through. It’s obviously a SCAM as the website starts at 0 not O. BE AWARE!

Re: SCAM

Hi @Amillyn 

You are correct.

It's a well known scam.

Block the number and do not follow any links.

Forward the scam text to 7726 - It's free.
