Receiving unwanted messages on Mobile Daily

So is there something that can stop these..this is the phone number a I reported it on this site so far. I have never open any of the links being sent to our mobile. We don't use it hardly at all...

Caller identification
⚠️ According to our users’ reports, there is a high probability that the telephone number 07939231737 that contacted you is a text message scam!

Why do we care? Falling victim to a scam can have a huge emotional impact as well as a severe financial one. It is vitally important that older people are aware of the type of phone scams, and know what to do to protect themselves. Reporting scams, those that are successful and attempts, is hugely helpful in trying to catch the fraudsters and helping others avoid them in the first place.

warning
Report this number

p.s. I have just been deleting them,as I guess anybody that has the link ..maybe cause..well I honestly not sure..but at worst could be a virus! or just vulgaraity

Has your mobile phone not got a block number feature?

They do indeed. Probably got around 10 numbers blocked on my phone.

It;s a pity that network providers don't seem to have a service that, if enough people block a number, would automatically do so to prevent others from having their time wasted.

yes with all the technology that's about these days you'd think phone companies could do something to keep their customers safe

Re: Receiving unwanted messages on Mobile Daily

I'm always blocking numbers. Like you said they get sneaky and use another one, so that gets blocked as well. If I'm not sure I check the number out on the "who called me" website then it gets blocked if it's a pest number. I have blocked so many over the past few years.
