Then you receive a “secret” code on your phone, and you are asked to enter it on the site. However, entering this code actually indicates your agreement to set up a paid subscription.
As a result, you enter the “secret” code, and some amount of money begins to be deducted from your mobile account each day.
You are asked to send a text message (SMS) from your mobile phone to a number shown on the site. Then you receive a “secret” code on your phone, and you are asked to enter it on the site.
The cost of sending a text message to a short number is usually higher than the cost of a normal text message for your plan. In addition, the cost information might not be available anywhere on the site, or it is put in a part of the site where you are unlikely to notice it.
As a result, as soon as you send a message to the short number, some amount of money is deducted from your mobile account. In many cases, this may initiate daily deductions of money from your phone.
