I suddenly received an sms saying that I must reply yes or no to a Cellspice subscription and I will be debited R7.00 a day.
Now I have never even heard of this site so I went to investigate and shocked; I didnt even know it existed and now they have my cellphone number
I replied with a NO
and not even 5 minutes later the same sms comes through and tells me I have subscribed to the service and must reply Yes or No...so again I replied NO.
I did notice the the sms came from two different numbers but the reference is the same

    I just received the same sms, but dated back to Dec 27, 2013. This is on my DATA contract, I cannot send sms to the number provided and therefor cannot unsubscribe! I also do not know how the hell I subscribed to this ! I am laying a formal complaint at the consumer commission ! Unlawful subscription and charging for a services not provided nor requested! This company has to prove that I subscribed to their junk! This is bullshit! You owe me R7/p from DEC 27 2013!

    I have also received an sms reminding me that I am subscribed for R7p/day, but I haven't submitted to anything. My TAB cannot send sms's so I cannot sms NO to 43887. How can I stop this fraud on my account?

    Also been hit by these guys. Looks like they've been doing this for a while. I found that a company called Mira is the party that handles this. Very cross.

    I noticed my account creaping up over the last month . finally got itemised billing and found a R7 deduction of my account . I dont know what this service is suppose to be but I never agreed to it . how can companies just take money without your approval? this is fraud . How can I stop this ?

    Since last month I received nearly daily a sms to say that an mount is going of my account for subscribing to cellspice. I never subscribe this. According to me this is fraud. Can someone please explain what is going on.
