OK this has just been a wonderful day. I have Verizon Wireless. Today they had nice customer service that was helpful to a point. They blocked this "Premium Text Messaging" for me but cannot refund the $9.99 that has been charged to my account.
So do this, call up Verizon Wireless (or whatever your carrier is) and have them block premium text messages. Then you won't get a rogue $9.99 charge on your bill.
If you call the phone number on the text message (I got it Aug 31 and disregarded it as spam, so did not even look at it) you get a mumbling voice that tells you he can help! He then gives you instructions to stop the service (text STOP to 47941) and then says any other inquires should be sent to their email address, email@example.com. So there is no human being at the phone number, that being 1 800 510 1468. That is right, the flipping company is called Too Lazy. And they sell horoscopes.
The Verizon billing specialist I talked to tells me they used a double opt-in method, where someone has to text the premium number, 47941 in this case, from the handset. Well that never happened. I don't need to pay $9.99 for ONE text message to tell me that I am a son of a bitch (I am a Taurus, thanks for asking).
Right now I am looking for a place to lodge a formal complaint about Too Lazy LLC. So the moral of the story is to call your carrier and have them block premium text messages. Then this shit won't happen.
