Jane's complaint against Prizehook

Jane Stichbury


Each week a charge of £3.75 via a text which has not been requested.

Complaint against Prizehook

I have been very surprised by a substantial rise in my phone bill over last three months bills. It seemed I had been calling a premium number although I knew I had not. Eventually I discovered the charges were from a weekly text I received from prize hook. I did not realise the significance of these texts and had just deleted them each time, not realising that I had been charged £3.75 each week for a single text. I have never subscribed to these texts and realise now that this charge has been made over a period of 10 weeks, thus costing me around £50.00. I am at a loss as to what I can do. I realise now through reading accounts from others that although one can apparently STOP these texts, it doesn't necessarily work and even if I could stop them I have lost a great deal of money. Please help if you can!

I have sent a message via email to which I have had an automated reply. I will apparently be contacted in 2 working days. In the meantime, I have read the numerous complaints, all with very similar accounts. We need to get together in order to get justice.

I have been contacted by prize hook with many fatalism of how I am supposed to have ended up in this position, all of which are not open to confirmation. I have been assured that the rtexts will stop. They are also suggesting I have received only 3 texts but I know the number is much greater. This is very unsatisfactory so I will continue the fight for reimbursement of monies.

Judging by the number of other complaints I would summarise that this company is deliberately extracting money by charging for unsolicited text messages . I am surprised that they are able to continue with this practice- the complaints are continuing to appear on your site, for the most part unresolved. It is a clever scheme on their part as the amounts concerned are not great enough for individuals to take legal action, (mine was in excess of £50.00) But the numbers of people duped is huge.
