The previous thread has been closed, so I have started a new one. 

I am being scammed by Vodafone SecureNet which tells me that my 3 month free period has ended and I will be charged if I don't cancel. They give instructions on how to do this, but I can't as the phone they are sending these texts to is on the O2 network. 

Is this a scam, or is Vodafone trying to become con-artists?

    Vodafone do not scam people.

     If this were a scam from someone pretending to be Vodafone then there would be a link for you to click on to pay some money.

    Vodafone might and do raise incorrect billing messages.

    Have you ever had a contract with Vodafone? Has your phone number ever been on the Vodafone network?

    If not then ignore it.

    You seem very confident in issuing statements with no proof to back them up. 

    Personally, I will wait to see what happens before rushing to anything like such a self appointed superior position. 

    It is not my fault if Vodafone make billing errors. That is for them to sort out. 

    Why would my O2 phone number be listed on a Vodafone accounts list? They have obtained my number from somewhere, which sounds like dodgy practice just on its own. 

    And even if it was a Vodafone phone, their underhand tactics of suddenly giving people a 3 month free service and then making the customer opt out after that period, if they do not want to continue with a service they never asked for - seems like a scam to me.
