SMS scam?

Hi,

Today, I got the following SMS appearing to come from 'Premium':

Nå er det siste sjanse
Få Spotify Premium i 6 måneder for kun 10 kroner
Kom i gang her - <URL removed>

Avmeld: send X til +4759444916

It's in Norwegian, and in short, it says, "Now it's the last chance -Get Spotify Premium for 6 months for only NOK 10 -Get started here - <the bit.ly link>
Unsubscribe: Send X to <not a typical Norwegian mobile number>

The link leads to an obvious fake page asking for the Spotify credentials.

Anyone else receiving it?

I followed the link on an Android device to see what it looked like, knowing well that it was a fake thing.

First, the address in the address bar wasn't even remotely related to Spotify's domain. There was a 2-minute counter that started, urging me to answer a short "survey" asking generic things about your Spotify usage habits, and I got a 92% "score", allowing me to go further! Fantastic!

Typical. Create a sense of hurry, giving the victims little time to think about their actions. Not impressed.

At this point, there was a form asking for personal info like full name, address and phone number. At this point I stopped and closed the Web browser tabs.

Nice try, morons...

I just recieved the same SMS, 2 min ago. Exact same one! Maybe Spotify should annonce that there is a storm of FAKE Spotify Premium offers going around, on their website. So that all users get aware. Has anyone tried to Avmeld: Send X til +4759444915? Seeing that they are sending SMS's from this number: 7736486.. 

Im not sure I dare, seeing that loads of people have had their telephone stripped of details and costs have magically appeared on their invoices.. 

 

Their website is: http://www.premiumsecurity.co.za/index.php?nav=contact seems to be South African..
