At&t let a third party charge me $9.99 without my consent
I got a spam SMS from 31850 asking me to sign up for some quiz, I just ignored it, I've always heard not to reply 'STOP' to spamers because then they know your number is real and being spammers they don't care what you reply. I've seen messages on this board where people reply 'STOP' and it does no good.
Anyway, I just got my bill and AT&T let this "third party" (it's in quotes because they have to be in cahoots with at&t for this to happen) charge me $9.99 for their subscription. I don't have time to deal with it now but I'll probably have to take time out of my day monday call At&t.
I usually don't get upset over stuff but I can't believe that AT&T lets someone sign me up for a $9.99 a month charge without consent, without a password or pin or an email or anything.
By the way, you are all now signed up for my subscription service. Please read this sentence to confirm.
