Virgin Media Text 07953 966 066
 
I am getting loads for calls from 07953 966 066, which I gather is Virgin Media Text. The messages say to call 07953 966 066 to stop getting these messages. Why should I have to pay to call this number to stop messages I never asked for? Is there a weblink that I can use to stop these messages?

07953 966 066
Around 10:25 on Tuesday night We received a call on the land-line from this number, the wife picked up the phone and I could see by the question marks floating above her head she had no idea what the hell was going on. Picking up the extension I heard a robot (crappy computer generated like I used on the Spectrum decades ago)telling a rather stale joke about Jesus and someone else.
The voice said I was sent this by mobile number ???? (didn't get it) and should 07953 966 066 to cancel any future calls.
Advice:- Don't call back - It must cost them money to call you so if it happens again let it run on the land-line and/or ignore any calls to your mobile.

i have just recieved 2 calls on my landline saying there is a message for me. it says to stop recieving these messages please call 07953966066 from my landline. i have phoned virgin up and they say they can stop the text alerts i get but it won't take effect until tomorrow, they also said to call 08009533333 and report it but the lines are only open 10am-4pm daily. i will report it and see if it is a scam. it does seem very strange to be getting these. my work place is also getting them and we have 30 lines which can be very busy
Caller ID: 07953966066
Then this seems to point that its not from virgin but you have to phone virgin to pick up the message that has been left ????

How do I pick up messages?

It depends on whether you receive text or voice messages and if you have an answering machine or voicemail.

* If you receive text messages they will be sent to your text compatible phone for you to pick up and save if required.
* If you receive spoken text messages and have an answering machine or voicemail service, then the Voice Text will be recorded as a normal message.
* Alternatively, just dial the Text Store on 0845 602 1111 or 07953 966 066 from the phone that received the message and follow the instructions. Please remember that text messages are only saved for 24 hours from the time the message was sent.
I love how fast a GOOGLE search brings up information :)

Just realized it's a t-mobile phone, so 08005875252 has no effect.

Got called 8 times with a blank message but reading here and once I knew it was T-Mobile I had an idea who it was.
Sure enough it's my idiot mate telling me his mobile keeps sending the messages. It's in his pocket and as he moves it dials.
Am I supposed to believe this ? Or is the **** just being his usual wind-up merchant self ?
I don't have a mobile and I'm beginning to detest them.
Cheers for the info here
