There’s a great way to fight this if you have AT&T. Forward it to their unsolicited legal department! When AT&T receives enough notices about a specific phone number or text block, they will take action on behalf of their subscribers!

First, PRESS DOWN on the original scumbag message until a pop-up appears and choose COPY.

Click and HOLD DOWN in the field you usually type things and choose PASTE and then SEND the message. In a few seconds, you will receive the confirmation AT&T has received this message and needs just one more thing to apply the big boot of justice to these internet roaches.

That’s it!! You have just helped take one more dirtbag off the internet!

On a related note, since I have started doing this about three weeks ago, my unsolicited text messages on my AT&T cell phone have gone from about three per day to ZERO.
