Default Getting charged every Friday lunch time 1.25

Hey all,

For the past 10 weeks or so I have been receiving charges on my phone under 'application' of 1.25 every friday lunch time, I have no idea why I'm getting these, and when I phoned orange (not sure if it should be in this forum) they don't know why as its a third party payment, they have refunded me for 5 payments however. Has anyone else been receiving these charges? IF so how to stop them.

Cheers

Josh

Have you downloaded any ringtones? There are a lot of scams using products like ringtones which trick you into weekly/monthly charges.

Yeah, I believe there was a fake Zedge app kicking about recently so that might well be the case.

Is it coming via your bill? Aren't Orange able to give you a bit more info?

Having done some research I've found out it was the company 'buongiorno' who started the charges, according to them I went on their website, read through their TOS and clicked accept, however, considering I haven't used any of their services before and before I started to receive charges I was receiving some texts from them I find that hardly believable, anyway, I've managed to cancel it and have sent them an email asking for a refund, as the REP on the phone advised me too - just hope they do.

Oh and the customer support at orange said that they didn't have any info on who was charging me (seems a tad suspicious).

Mobile customer uncovers premium rate 'bug'

"Consultant Mark Hole found he could sign up anyone for some premium rate services from content maker Buongiorno.

All he needed to know was a potential victim's mobile number and whether they used the Orange network."

Angry

I just discovered I've been getting scammed by these cowboys and I certainly never agreed to any terms and conditions or accepted any kind of contract, I had never even heard of them! I spotted yesterday my phone bill was escelating with unknown charges and today received a text from mobivillage (aka buongeorno) to say I am signed up and should I wish to cancel text 'no' in reply or phone this number!! I was livid and phoned them and gave them serious grief, funnily enough there was no argument over the refund I demanded but we shall see if the money turns up at all!! I find it ironic and amusing that the 1st option on the telephone was "if you are unhappy with our services......"!!!! That speaks volumes to me at least!!!!!!
