Debt Settlement Order Unsolicited Text Message

This morning I received the following unsolicited text message from +447592519319 :-

The government has introduced a Debt Settlement Order, this means people struggling with debt can apply to have it wiped off, to apply txt OK. 2 stop txt STOP

A Debt Settlement Order has been introduced, this means people struggling with debt can apply to have if wiped off, to apply txt DEBT. 2 stop txt STOP

A quick search on the net came up with:

This is a scam. Even texting ‘STOP’ may cost you money, and will also let the scammers/spammers know that your number is a legitimate one and may lead to more text spam.

So if you really want to know what your options are, just contact me and ask the question via my Contact Page this will not cost you.

  1. Interesting – this week I have had a number of calls/voicemails with an automated message saying just the thing, and to press “2” on my keypad to find out more. I suspected it was a scam and googled the number to see if it had been reported… but nothing. Seems like this is the scammers topic du jour though!

  3. I received the same message to my pay as you go phone today, but from 07542 059649. Which database do they get the numbers from? Very annoying!

  4. Had 2 messages this week from 0044 754300393 on 22nd March and from 0044 7591291158 on 24th March to my UK mobile over here in France.
    Can’t the authorities trace these numbers and do some thing about it ?
