Text Message Scams

Got caught out recently on a scam via an innocuous email (we think from Tesco - allegedly). We then started getting freee text messages (and subsequently ignoring them!) which all of a sudden turned into £1.25 text messages (despite one of the messages saying it would cost £1.50).

You can dynamically check data with a simple set of functions. These functions send data to the server, get a response back and update the page with that information.
