Don't reply anyway - delete the message and monitor your inbox for anything coming from strange 5XXXX numbers.
Just got hit with this today. Just got a text from 57030 to say i subscribed to mobvids for a sign up fee off 2 x 250 euro and 4x250 euro per week.
I've been around long enough to know better to enter my number in to any site.
So been on to o2 comreg and the people Zamano who sent the text. So all in all I got hit for about 15 euro ringing theses numbers to see how they got my number and try and sort it out.
Scam at its best.
