Mobile phone bill scam
« on: December 28, 2010, 06:14:06 PM »
Just checked my account on line and was told that I owed 0.75 and that access to bits of my account was restricted until I paid it.  I couldn't see how this was true as I never get anywhere near my 100 minutes / 300 texts a month.
So after speaking to Newcastle and then to Gareth in Bombay it seems as if this was a scam. 
Who's worried about 75p?  Let's pay it.  The theory from Orange is that it's a credit card scam.  I had my PC checked for trojans etc the other week and have up to date anti virus stuff but still some clever bastard gets through.

This isn't one of those spam jobbies, it really did happen to me.
