Unknown charges from 19900019 - bigmobau.com

At the end of the last year I received a message: “FreeMsg:Big Mobile. Your link to access content: http://bigmobau.com/TCHOS7ROTYZYNPC42 Help? 1300711168 Quit? Sms stop to 19900019”. 

And then “FreeMsg: You're currently subscribed to BigMobile and have been charged $6.99/wk on your mobile account.Help?1300711168. Stop? SMS STOP to 19900019.Honolux”.

 

Because I had no idea how is this, so I thought that there is no way they could convince my provider to charge me without confirmation. I just ignored it and simply blocked that number.

 

I am on prepaid account, so don’t receive regular statements of use. Only very recently I logged in and looked at my usage list and noticed I am regularly charged 6.99… It is finally making sense to me why my prepaid balance so fast dropping down this year!

I sent SMS STOP to 19900019 – that is all I can do (although I always believed that communication with spammers is not a good idea…).

Anyway, I realise that even if I don't recall to subscribe to anything – nobody going to refund money to my account.

I only want Optus to prevent this unauthorised charges to continue.

@LOTM - We can definitely rectify this issue for you. Would you be able to send through your mobile number, full name and DOB so we can investigate? Sounds like it's been going on for quite some time. Very sorry for the experience.
