Repeated spam texts

Hello, has anybody else experienced repeated spam texts. I've received over 15 messages from "Apple" today and they just keep coming. I can't seem to block the number either, any ideas?

Re: Repeated spam texts

Not just people on Plusnet, obviously a new general spammer.

 

If you can't block the number, you need a better phone Wink

Re: Repeated spam texts

It's called spoofing - you know, like the email that pretends to be from PayPal - nothing to do with the victim's phone!

Re: Repeated spam texts

If the OP's phone is incapable of blocking texts from what it clearly identifies as from the same number, it's everything to do with their rubbish phone!
