Nowadays many sites send SMS messages to communicate with the users or just validate that they own a given phone number. However sending SMS messages requires using a service that costs money.

This class can reduce the costs of sending SMS messages to numbers that the user informed incorrectly by making a basic verification using the numverify API.
