23334 Scam?

Hi,

 

I fell for a Premium number scam this morning, from 23334.

 

They were pretending to be o2, asked if I had used o2 priority in the last 3 months (I replied "1" for yes) and then realised I'd been had.

 

So I'm wondering how do I prevent additional charges from this #? Am I automatically subscribed? Will I be charged for receiving future SMS' from them? How do I block the # and unsubscribe please?

 

Should I just close my account with o2?

Not all do.

Surveys will come from a shortcode number which are free to respond to.

Nothing fishy about that at all @Baz80 

Why do you think you've been had?

Hi @MI5 ,

 

Thank you for your reply.

 

I think I've been had because the # appears in my mail box as 23334 whereas I see previous messages from o2 appear as 'O2 UK' etc.
