What the shitting Crikey!!
Now completley unrealated to the article, and rant incoming...
Reading this article I thought i'd log in and check my three account..you know just out of Curiosity.
I noticed I had a £3 charge that was outside of my normal fees...Looking in to it I'd been charged for receving a text message!!! I had a look at the text message in question and it reads "To get our short simple tasty cooking recipes and enjoy hassle free cooking visit http://my.recipefind.co.uk". I had just ignored it as spam, but had been charged £3 to just receive it...the number it came from was 65144.
Just phoned up 3 who have refunded the cost and blocked future paid messages..... Thank you el-reg without you I probably wouldn't have noticed it. I would never have imagined you could be charged for receiving spam.... Sorry folks rant over
