Spam phone calls are bad but even worse are spam texts. We live in a day and age where we are virtually reachable 24 hours a day 7 days a week. As long as you have a cell phone, you are reachable.
Most people won't answer a phone call if they don't know the number so what are spammers do? They started sending spam texts.
To be honest, if your phone buzzes, chances are you go ahead and pick it up to see the message. So the spammers are hoping that you read it and respond or click on the attached link.
I noticed that a couple of 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 just ignore the texts and deleted them but then they just kept on coming. Bing, bing, bing...notification after notification of new text messages. It was driving me crazy but then I found out you could block them and report them as spam, and it is really easy to do.
It takes just a couple of steps and maybe 2 minutes of your time.
