Should be able to phone your telephone operator and get the stop code for it?
#2
Your SP will be able to tell you where they are originating from.

Text STOP to the number & see if it has any effect

To stop the service you simply need to send a text with the words STOP ALL (in capitals) to the shortcode number.

This sounds like them fobbing you off, I work for a mobile company who have games etc and the operators always know who is sending the messages
