    Phone text "live" mobile scam on 3 three, others? ie vodafone 02 orange t-mobile tesco virgin??

    Received a text on my 3 phone to text "live" to 81456 or I will be disconnected! Rang 3 they say they didnt send it. This is obviously some sort of scam!!!?!!!......I bet others would have replied..... ? has anyone else received this text as 3 seemed well aware of it when I called. Be on your guard as this may just be random? Text was sent from "3" so be aware they may have charged me till i replied with STOP?....... maybe its me?

    I find it hard to believe that people would actually fall for this!
