How to report a spam text?

One of the phones on my plan keeps getting spam text messages from different numbers. Is there a way to report these to Verizon? The latest was the Best Buy you $1000 gift card spam message.

Forward them to 7726 (SPAM) and follow the instructions in the response.

PS If you had searched the community, you would have found several recent discussions asking the same thing.

I did search, but I did not find a post where that was the answer. I found a lot of messages about blocking the number. Thanks for your help.

Well I also just did a search "spam text" after I posted it just to see was the results were.  I was able to see at least 6 right away with the same answer I gave you.

Most search engines work better when you link to a page. Then, that page gets returned higher in the results list. Search engine results do not improve when you chastise another user for not searching correctly.

Hmmmm I searched for 'spam text' in support and didn't find this response. Luckily I googled it and found this thread. Thanks!
