Block or turn off SMS notifications from unknown senders

Im getting an increasing number of text-text and email-text spam messages via SMS.  What can be done to block it?  What can be done to silence the SMS notification from unknown senders?

Not a lot can be done.  They are spoofed emails and numbers and change constantly.

Not asking for a lot to be done.  I understand they are spoofed email and numbers that change constantly.  What they all have in common is that they are unknown.  They are not listed in my Contacts.  All Im really asking is what can be done to silence SMS notifications from unknown senders.

It was answered, there is very little you can do. This type of spamming/scamming plagues all providers. Just don't respond and delete as soon as you get them. Eventually they will go away.

No, they wont go away.  In fact, its becoming more and more frequent.  If phone calls from unknown callers can be blocked or silenced, why not messages from unknown senders?  I havent found anyone, or any service, with a guide on how that can be done nor an explanation on why it cant be done.

You've been told. The spoofed numbers change constantly so it is virtually impossible to block the source.

What about silencing SMS notifications from unknown senders?
