Where is this from and how much r they charging
He never does comps so how did it happen?

Hi Mona Lisa,
That's from this Australian Idol Comp

I've just received an SMS from the same number, Mona Lisa.
Although I've entered the Australian Idol contest I definately didn't sign up for weekly clues.

I've found this number listed on a website as a possible solicitor (of spam).

I'm wondering how much they charged for the call and how they got my number.
Anyone else getting calls from them?

I called Telstra and they have blocked the number and will reverse any charge.

We did not sign up for anything and am concerned that this is allowed to happen so easily without my consent.

I just got a SPAM subscription SMS from 1973 3733.

Does anyone where this has been generated from?

Its does not include text in the message to OPT out, although I did send a STOP message, which generated a further message to say that I have been unsubscribed.

I have read somewhere on other posts that they must include and OPT OUT option in the SMS.

Can someone please advise who I can contact to lodge a complaint.

I never enter anything that remotely suggests a subscription service.

Also received some Free Fusion sms advising of sales. Am pretty sure that received one, sent the opt out message and then received another one from a diifferent number.

This number has generated a $3.50 mobile charge:mad:

Can this week get any worse

Help please. It said I was unsubscribed when I sent the stop after the 1st message and I just received another message!

Watch out for 08 6210 2310 checked up & it is Telstra trying to drum up business & pester everyone, they ring & ring.

Plus 02 8114 3800 which is Optus trying to get you off pre-paid onto plans.

tarzwal, you can ring the Telecommunications Ombudsman, I think they can sort it out for you, in phone book somewhere, or do a search?

got a missed call and message on my phone at 1.43am!!

from 07 3263 8378 - believe it must be a scam number, no legit company would be calling at that hour.

I will not be calling them back to find out.

Thank god I had my phone on silent - would not have been impressed if it had woken the baby

Scam numbers

If you want a neat little trick. Often they will ask if you and your partner is between 20 and 60.

Tell them you're 61 and your partner is 19.

They close the call verrrry quickly :)

Was it for a Samsung Galaxy. If it was it is a scam.

My partner received two different sms messages about the Apple comp which is a scam. It looks to be a subscription service so check your charges.

I checked out these two websites. I am going to ask my partner to check his account to see he hasn't been charged?

I have received two so far in the last week. The first one I deleted after googling and the second one I have not removed as yet. The second number was + 13473317723 at 6.53am on a Saturday morning. They should not try and scam a comper so early lol!

Quoting the message

"You made Apple's winner of the day! Go to and on the last page enter code: 9621 to claim your prize. You have 24 hours to claim. "

Edit: I am on prepaid and checked my balance yesterday and today and it seems I have not been charged anything :) Possibly once you are on the site they may ask for credit card details. I wasn't going to go there though :no::no::no:
