echovox text message Scam!

Hi Guys,


Have you ever received a text message on your cell phone with "911" written as the main subject?


I received it, never read it, deleted it and even though I was charged with CHF150.00 in my bill. Because I subscribed to their Services?? What Services?? Neither Swisscom can explain.


Called the Scam Company Echovox more than 33 times, and they simply hang up the phone, after of course I waited over 20 minutes on a paid call.




Now Swisscom asked them a Report where they must prove that I requested their Services.


And this will go on an on.


Why is Swisscom allowing ist customers to receive this scamming/ fraudulent Messages?


I am so upset ...
