Short answer: Call your bank. Long answer below...
Got following text from the number in question: "Halifax has noticed your credit card ending *NNNN* was recently used online on *date and time*, at *website name*. for *£amount*. Please confirm if this transaction was made by you by replying Yes or No." I replied Yes. Then received text saying: "Thanks for confirming the transaction was made by you. If it was "declined" you'll need to wait 10 minutes before trying again. Thanks for using our fraud service." Had just stopped an online transaction halfway through, so it made sense that a red flag had been raised at Halifax HQ. I called Halifax and the text was genuine, BUT, first person I spoke to said it wasn't a Halifax number. On advice of this forum I asked to be put through to the fraud team and they confirmed it was legit, so make sure you persist. Anyone writing here that it's fraud is either confused or, as a previous poster has noted, a dick.

Except it really is Lloyd's bank fraud line! I had the same text, called their main switchboard, confirmed it was legit and cancelled my cards for me. Sounds like somebody *did* make some money off you in the end, just not the ones you thought.

Legit
It's 100% the car phone warehouse. They can't help it if people hand in fake numbers etc. If you've never dealt with them then this is usually he case.

07860035287/447860035287
This number is legitimate. Confirmed by calling TSB on their landline given for my local branch (York, UK). This call was initiated by a failed (on my part) transaction for an on-line purchase. When the E-Verify page came up to authenticate my debit-card it asked for ALL of my bank account details which I thought was unusual. As I had no way of knowing whether the E-Verify site had been compromised (hacked) I terminated the transaction (or so I thought).My wife contacted the company we were making the purchase from who also verified this purchase was on hold. TSB put these onto a PENDING list, hence recieving the SMS. My stance on this? Better safe than sorry.

Block and dont answer
This number keeps ringing me! Its definitely a scam! I picked up for 2 secs and it was a recorded message about 'Government awareness'. Its better to just block this number unless your willing to pay an expensive bill.

Vauxhall Lookers
This company are always calling or texting me and have been for months, they are wanting me to test drive a car or have my numerous cars MOT'd. I say numerous because they give me a reg number that is always different!!!. I have asked them to remove my number from their data base and both times they have assured me that they will but obviously haven't. I believe them to be Liverpool based and I am on the South Coast!!!!

PPI SPAM
This number sends PPI spam of the highly illegal sort where it pretends that it's part of an ongoing PPI enquiry that you might have. Actual text: "We have been trying to contact you regarding your PPI Claim, we now have details of how much you are due, reply POST to receive your pack or reply STOP, E Ltd" Obviously do NOT text STOP back, they will then know someone is live at your number.

This woman must be suffering multiple personality disorder, she called herself "Lucy" when she texted me - otherwise the same BS message as is listed here a thousand times over - RU Still looking 4 fun I'm local and game if UR LOL chat. I was gonna text it back and just tell her to do one, glad I checked on this site first, that would've cost me a bit just to do that and I expect my number would've been put on a suckers list...
