What could be worse than getting an unsolicited spam call twenty times a day? Getting a spam text non-stop. We live in a day and age where we are virtually reachable 24 hours a day 7 days a week.

Most of us are smart enough not to answer a phone call if we don't know the number. So what are spammers doing? They started sending spam texts.

If your phone goes off with a notification of a text most of us will pick up our phone go ahead and read it right. So the spammers are hoping that you read it and respond or click on the attached link.

I noticed that about six months ago I went from getting 2 or 3 spam texts per month to about 2 to 3 spam texts per day. They are usually addressed to someone else and they ask for you to click on a link. (BTW, never click on a link that you are unsure of. That is one of the easiest ways to let spammers get info off your phone) 

I would usually just ignore the texts and delete them but then they just kept on coming. Bing, bing, bing...notification after notification after notification of a new text message. It was driving me nuts until I found out you could block them and report them as spam.

It is really easy to report spam texts and block them. It takes just a couple of steps and maybe 2 minutes of your time.
