    SPAM SMS with No Number 10th Mar 18 at 12:44 PM
    I have read your guides, registered with TPS etc. etc. but how do I stop SPAM SMS?

    These messages DO NOT appear to have a number and just display (possibly) a name and SMS centre.

    Example - this is the contents of an example SMS - have NOT clicked the link.

    Hi Vip Member
    Enjoy my new system
    Test it and start make money:
    ****.ws/37a4

    OR

    Hi
    This system change the world
    test it and get it free:
    ****.ws/1Kgj

    Surely these messages should be 'caught' by someone - mobile phone companies if Laws / Rules were changed or applied

    Link modified both messages from same domain

    There is no easy fix for spam whatever the phone companies do the spam alway seems to get through to someone.

    The only way that would help is if the phone company's or whoever takes the ability to hide or withhold your number away then you will be able to block them.
