Could someone be stealing my credit?

A few times my credit has been a lot lower than I expected. I don’t use my phone that much. It might sound paranoid, but could someone remotely steal credit from me? Or is that ridiculous?!

Hm... You can ring your customer care and let them check if you unwittingly 'subscribed' to some sms service. Also: Not knowing what type of phone you use - could be your email client checking for updates etc etc...
If you give us some more details (phone type, apps and services you use etc ), we could narrow it down...

It was a service I was unwittingly subscribed to. Needless to say, I am subscribed no longer :|

I hate that! Every time I check my balance or have topped up, Vodafone send me some nonsense 'invite' for competitions etc etc... And it's quite easy to hit a wrong button. They shouldn't do that - it conditions folks to 'interact' with sms from unknown senders offering some 'chance to win' etc etc...
SMS from unknown senders belong in the bin. Unopened and ignored.

This has also happened to me, I'm an Optus user and I've stupidly subscribed to something with my phone number and ever since then about over 10$ of my credit goes missing it'll probably look like "19900100" which is anonymous so you can't really track them down but I suggest contact your network and let them know also I recommend getting a new sim or just text "STOP" to the SMS

They can cancel all subscriptions for you!
