Mobile phone scam

Can anybody please tell me if there is an organisation I can report unsolicited messages to my mobile phone telling me it is my last chance to claim my 4 star free holiday to Tenerife, or an alternative £5000 cash award by dialling 09061743806? They must think we are retards!

Also how did they get hold of my mobile phone number?

Scary had the same text earlier this evening, just deleted it.

They no doubt bought your phone number from somewhere (or guessed it). Have you ever used it on a response form for anything and not opted out of the marketing option?
