Scam text from +447800003951

Recieved the following scamming text from the number above above:

Thank you for using Plusnet Broadband. We'll text you shortly for some feedback about your recent experience. To opt-out, please reply with STOP.

Followed by:

How likely are you to recommend Plusnet based on the experience of using your Broadband in the last month? Please score between 0 (unlikely) and 10 (highly likely).

Just a warning to everyone and information for PlusNet so you can investigate and stop the scam.

There's a very high probability that it is actually from Plusnet.😁

Yep @RealAleMadrid 

Companies use your mobile number to tell you things, sometimes legit. Didn't know the NHS had my mobile number - they do. That is fine with me.

That is how I found out I could have my first vaccine. I jumped at the chance.

Had my first one a fortnight ago, though it has made me feel RAF. (I'd better not say what that means or I will get told off!).

Have you given it to your GP. @Alex ?

I must have done @jab1. Not that I remember doing it! 

Or I gave it to the hospital when I have been in there after I've had a seizure.

Still they must have my mobile number on my medical records, which I can't complain with.
