    The sad thing is, as long as there are gullible people in the world there will be scammers just waiting to take advantage.

    Yes, anyone who expects something for nothing should be taught a lesson.
    And if it was my son, he'd be getting one.

    My comment wasn't directed at your son, more on the general population and all these scamming ******s.

    A mate of mine spent an hour on my mobile once talking to husky voiced women. We didn't speak for 3 years.:eek: :D

    Well, the days of a good hiding are gone (probably rightly) so I agree, make him pay. He won't do it again.
    If you're anything like me, you'll hit him out of his pocket money/treats and then relent after a couple of weeks, you wimp ;)

    You really must control that jealousy Dave. I bet she really missed your cajoling conversation, and her inflated wages, during those bleak 3 years :smashin:

    definitely not allowed here :) Unfortunately we cannot edit sites that are linked to.

    The very reason I posted a request to the OP to let us know if he'd read the link.

    After I posted the link the alarm bells started ringing :blush:

    lol, I would never call a premium line number when there are perfectly good resources elsewhere. In any case, I don't think a 13 year old would be interested in GCSEs... unless he actually is, in which case :smashin: and !

    Well he may have been interested in the GCSE link he is basically a good kid no problems at all with schooling or manners etc.. infact we got a letter from his school to say he was in the top 5% academically and that's not just regional.
    I have had a word with him and he was told about this on a forum through a game called infamousgangsters.com all his mates go on the game...Its now banned on his pc as i have blocked the site :(
    Anyway thanks for the help guys,one final thought.His mother hit the roof with the extra on the bill and i think she was hoping it was me as with most mothers she hates punishing her offspring.I know he needs this lesson but am i being a little harsh....:rolleyes: :lease:
    He earns his own pocket money through cricket [which he loves] earns about £30-40 a week in the summer , I am to tight to give him pocket money :rotfl:

    personally, I think you can be too harsh in cases like this. If he is a good kid who has just made a mistake, you telling him off will be sufficient punishment.........

    Does Sky allow you to block all premium rate numbers as BT do? I've had them blocked on my line for years.

    No comprehention of the cost of things. Still, we'll pay for it and she's had a good talking to, so hopefully she wont do it again.

    More importantly who is sexy sue then? :D
