I just received a text from ixkfgoctlns@realdealsmsalerts.com

[[SPAM]] You have earned a complimentary cruise for two! Call (610) 8440866

How do I block this kind of spam?

Thanks.

If you're on a post-paid account and log into your on-line MyVerizon account, look under Manage My Device and click the blue Block Calls and Messages.  At the top of the page, click the blue Manage Family Safeguards & Controls.  Scroll down to Internet Spam Blocking, then click the blue View Details & Edit.  Choose the appropriate line at the top, if applicable.  Check the boxes for 'block all text messages sent from the web' and 'block all text messages sent from e-mail', then click Apply.

You can block all text messages sent from the Web with a setting in your MyVerizon account online.

For now you can forward the message to "SPAM (7726) and follow the instructions in the reply from VZW.

I'm most definitely NOT a VZW employee. If a post answered your question, please mark it as the answer.

Thanks for the reply.

I forwarded the message to 7726 (SPAM).

But it is not possible, using the webform provided, to block a text message received from an email address.

Thoughts?
