Obnoxious PPI pests move into sms

I’ve had a few calls from pests lying to me that could recover mis-sold Payment Protection Insurance (PPI). I know they are lying because I have never taken this sort of insurance out.

Today I received a text message from 07879989478 saying:

“Records passed to us show you’re entitled to a refund approximately £2130 in compensation from mis-selling of PPI on your credit card or loan. Reply INFO or stop”

I wouldn’t dare risk replying and am going to see if I can find out who owns the number. It is almost certainly an anonymous PAYG job but I quite like the idea of an expose.

Lets see how I get on.
