I am actually on the Prepay4G_19.
Maybe it's because of that.

It's not a SCAM and is a Vodafone NZ shortcode

Oh ok, because all my vodafone txt will either say Vodafone or 756.

Just thought it wierd for Vodafone to send me a text to purchase something I've already have.

That's odd - are you sure you are on the Prepay Smart plan?

Prepay4G_19 is just the Add-On name, you are still on the Prepay Smart plan. Strange that this is being sent to you when you are already on the plan, however as we've said before this is definitely not a SCAM and is a valid Vodafone shortcode.
