EE take action to stop Payforit subscription scams

It would appear that, at last, EE are doing something about these subscription scams.

The links below relate to changes being required by EE for subscription services using Payforit. Essentially EE are now requiring two step authentication for all subscription services using Payforit. This means it will no longer be possible to become signed up to these services just by clicking a link.

What isn’t clear is whether EE will apply these requirements to it’s ‘own portal’ services (which don’t use Payforit).

At least one of the networks appears to be taking some action to stop these scams.

With the demise of Payforit, and a PSA consultation on a new Code of Practice for Phone-paid Services, we have decided to launch the Phone-paid Services Consumer Group (PSCG).
