Just checking our family T-Mobile billing details, noticed a $9.99 charge on daughter's phone for a service called Predictomobile. When we called T-Mobile, we were told to text a message to the original six-digit number saying "stop." She did this and got a return message saying she was unsubscribed. However, she claims she does not remember subscribing in the first place. I also received a call asking me to answer a survey question, and being an adult, I promptly told them we were on the national do not call list and hung up. This is a scam because they do not clearly tell kids they are selling some service, and this could happen to millions of kids before anybody can stop it. Keep an eye on your cell phone bill.

Luckily T-Mobile has all the details of each bill on line so we can look at them any time.

I feel this is one more symptom of the lack of basic morality, a simple concept of right and wrong, that has become part of our culture. What kind of thinking can make it okay to scam kids???

Had an Experience with Predictomobile?

Does anyone know of a lawsuit pending against predicto?They billed my account for 12 months before I noticed it (dumb me) and now they won't give me my money back.

They keep saying they will send me 39.00 but haven't eaven sent that amount.I would like to join a lawsuit and teach them a lesson about putting their hands into other peoles pockets for the purpose of STEALING.

Just argued with predicto after calling 1800 360 0518.Would not refund my 9.99.

Said their data base showed where we made up a pin and accepted the membership. Well once I said I wanted a copy of the data base ,time date and pin used to take it to my lawyer they said OK we will send you 9.99 back. I thought so.

They have no proof.What a SCAM!

I just called the number provided by Betsy above (1-800-360-0518) fought with them for 10 minutes and they are sending a refund check.

Unfortunately I am not as savvy as the younger generation and my grown children insisted I get a computer.Trying very hard to teach myself how to use the internet, I seemed to end up with Predicto on several Sprint bills.

My husband didn't realize what it was and paid the bill every month.

as soon as I saw it on this last bill I called a representative at Sprint to have it taken off immediately because I had tried several times to remove it and it kept coming up as $9.99 each month.I would love to get my money back..I will be making calls to whomever and where ever I have to so I can retrieve my money.....

PredictoMobile charged my Verizon phone 9.99 this month.I did not order their service!!

I called Verizon and they told me to text "stop" to their 654654 number. Verizon did not refund my money.

I also called Predicto and they sent me a cancellation confirmation over the phone.Hope they do not show up on my other lines.

Was bill $9.99 on my Verizon bill.Had no idea what it was.

I had been receiving texts from them and thought it was just spam, so I deleted them. They tell me I signed up for the service. I told them I would never knowingly sign up for such a service. They couldn't tell me where I signed up.

They just told me it was from a third party web site.I'm reporting them to the BBB.

The same happened here.Predicto charged my moms line and she didnt know what it was.

I handle all the billing so when I noticed it I called tmobile and they told me to text stop to the number 654654.

I hope it doesnt come back on the next bill.:(

:( I also had the "$9.99" charge on my Sprint bill.Spoke with representative at Sprint who informed me of the 3rd party charge by Predicto Mobile.

Rep gave me the number 1-800-360-0518 of PM. Rep from PM advised me that i received a SMS and that I replied to this SMS. Totally untrue!! Rep said they couldn't refund the charge, but would remove me from their account.

Recalled Sprint who then reversed the charge and blocked all 3rd party's from accessing my mobile number.BE AWARE!

So, I had the same issue, never heard of this company until I saw the $9.99 on my Sprint bill.Sprint took the charge off & blocked my account so third parties cannot access my account anymore.

What I'm wondering is, do I have to still try to contact PredictoMobile to make sure they don't try to bill me some other way?Or should this be the end of the issue, once they realize they cannot bill through my cell service?
