97885: text messages are genuinely from Vodafone

I recently received a text message from 97885, claiming to be from Vodafone and asking me to reply and take part in a survey.

However, that number isn’t listed on Vodafone’s page for numbers they make calls from and there isn’t an equivalent page for numbers Vodafone sends texts from.

One query to Vodafone’s customer services later, it turns out 97885 is indeed a number they use for sending legit text messages out to people. So if you get one of these too, then hopefully this post will save you wondering or having to contact them to check.
