Comments: More on 82277 spam

Thankyou for your very informative information, I've also had this problem, and found your investigation to be very interesting and helpful.. I've also started the complaint process, and have texted stop all.

One organisation to contact is also the ICO, basically the Data registrar, the service is breaking the law, or someone supplying data to them is breaking the law, so it is worth complaining to the ICO... I have already done this.

Paul, Thank you for all the good research and legwork that has gone into this. What a scam! My teenage daughter is getting these unsolicited joke texts. Charging us for this really adds insult to injury. I will follow this advice but I also want to complain to the ICO as per Gary's advice. Any suggestion on how to go about doing that? Thanks Penny Robertson

I have the same problem! I had received these SPAM from 82277. I have not signed up for anything with them. It took away around £10 from my mobile phone. How did they found out my moblie number?

My wife has been getting these jokes for over two months, these web comments help put a stop to it and all the costs which she didn't know she was being charged for.

So a big thank you for all out there for putting this information on the web for an easy resolution.
