Multiple Porn spam texts from VZWpix.com

I've been the unwilling recipient of several messages like this for the last week.

Is there any way to block this garbage? It's coming thru Vzwpic so there's no # to block.

You can block messages from email addresses via your MyVerizon account online by adding a block to your line. 

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

Forward to 7726 (SPAM) and follow the directions in the reply.

Did not work... the text is from a gmail account thru vzwpic.com.

I followed the directions but they ask for a # but there isn't one.

Wonder if I can block vzwpic?

Hello Reddy13, getting unwanted messages can be a headache, especially when they have strong content. Based on your screenshot, we see they are coming from an email address. You can block emails and domains by following the steps on this link: https://www.verizonwireless.com/support/block-unblock-services-faqs/. Let us know if this helped.

the 7726 does not work because there is no number!!  Will not work with email address.  I have been trying to get this resolved with Verizon advanced Tech Support and today they said I would have to block all text messages or change my number.  There is nothing they can do.  The last tech support actually said it is freedom of speech!!  How many of the numbers in the group details belong to children?!  I have called the FCC and they said because it is an email I needed to contact FTC.  I called FTC and they could only take the email address and will let their lawyers know.  They will decide if there is a case.  What the ?!?!  I have sent emails to every local news TV station consumer help hoping to hear back so someone can help us.  I think it may come down to a class action lawsuit.

Yes you can block emails on your verizon account but you can only block 15.  That's 15 for live!  I have received 6 of this porno text messages in 2 days.  What happens after the 15!?
