SMS text message to BT landline, possible scam?

Over the last 2 days we' ve had a spate of automated calls from  07953966066.

Voice says " we have an SMS text from (random mobile number), message is... Blank. To hear this message again or stop calls please ring above number.

Have done a search on the number and a few people have said it is tmobile/ virgin SMS text message service. I' m not sure about this as origin number is different each time and can't imagine why 15 strangers should suddenly want to send a blank message!

Reluctant to call back and wondered if anyone else has had this?

Have blocked SMS via BT but this does not seem to stop SMS texts from other providers.

Hi

Just type 07953966066 into Google and you will find all the information you need. Seems it is perfectly legitimate.

Thankfully calls have now stopped. I'm sure the number is legit. it was just that the mobile numbers quoted were all different. Maybe just a glitch in the system.
