Scam Scam Scam Scam

Three texts received over the past two days:

Note that the landline number and the message centre number does not change, but the sender’s number changes every time (to remove the possibility of blocking it) and there is a different REF:DR code each time. From this thread on Who Calls Me, it’s some kind of phone charging scam.

Debt Relief Order is a real thing, and if you need advice on how to deal with your debts go to a reputable adviser such as MoneySavingExpert or Citizen’s Advice Scotland.

This kind of spam scam is deliberately preying on vulnerable people who already have money problems. Probably the spammer scammer is not even in this country. My mobile phone provider is O2. What can be done about reporting these vampire squid and blocking them from using the O2 and other networks?
