(Vodafone) (Barcelona) phone theft scam

Here. The Moroccan and other mafias have presumably organised a service whereby thieves phone the premium-rate number and receive a percentage of the proceeds, all of which is paid for by Welsh schoolteachers, or, if capping is introduced, by the rest of the phone company’s customers. So why is nothing done about this?
