Premium SMS and Telstra Carrier Billing

Did Telstra forget the ACCC ruling and their obligations when it came to 3rd party charges ? Just receieved a bill with an extra 99.99 being charged for SMS Connect. This is a scam and for some reason Telstra billing allowed it to be charged. Yay now endless hours dealing with billing to dispute it. MERRY XMAS GUYS AND THANKYOU.

Appreciate the concern with SMS Connect charges. Do you happen to have settings in your handset for read receipts relating to SMS?
