Unsolicited premium text -secret sales

I have a contract which for my daughter. She received a text today which days she has subscribed to secret sales codes for £4.50 a month from Mobtech. Until she texts stop to 60031.
She is only 10 and has never signed up for anything like this. We monitor her use of the computer and iPad. Does anyone know if it is a scam or whether we should reply or not? I have heard various things which all which seem to contradict each other. Thanks
