Block the 1-410-100 messages

I am getting text messages from 1-410-100 and I can't block them because the last digit of the number is different. They are from an att phone to an att phone  from att. From you. How can I stop this. I forwarded them to your spam number 7726. If I have to change phone numbers I will but it won't be thru att.

One of the 3,000 plus texts I received said it was sent to (my phone number)@txt.att.net. I will be contacting AT&T with this info to see what they can do about it. These all started after I went on AT&T and two accounts were merged. It was soon after that these texts started.

These are NOT spam messages in my case. One of our systems monitoring processed sends out texts when a job goes down and we need to take care of it. I want to be able to filter these messages, but since the last 3 digits constantly change, I can't do anything with it. 


@Chuckers611 Get your system administrator to send the messages to yournumber@mms.att.net instead of @txt.att.net. Those messages will then all come from the same source and you can filter.

Block randoms from an iPhone:

 

1
Open your iPhone's
Settings. Tap the Settings app icon, which resembles a grey box with gears on it.
  • This method is ideal when you want to block someone who is already a contact in your iPhone before they have the chance to text you, but it can't be used for non-contacts
2
Scroll down and tap Messages. You'll find this option about halfway down the Settings page.
 
3
Scroll down and tap the white "Filter Unknown Senders"
switch. The switch will turn green
. Your iPhone will now separate messages that come from senders not on your contacts list to a separate tab in the Messages app.
  • In the Messages app, you'll see new tabs at the top: Contacts & SMS and Unknown Senders. You will not be notified of messages that go into the Unknown Senders tab.[2]

I continue to get 1-410-200 and 100 messages. There is NO phone number associated with them. When sending to 7726 response is immediate to now provide number. There is no phone number to reply with.

I just started getting these at five am in the morning last thursday, very annoying to be woke up that early.  I will try that filter method because I definitely do not like being woke up extra early in the mornings.  Please do try and do something about those.  Thank you, same issue all from different numbers by one digit and scaling upward, and all different spam messages.

These message started when I got my new number.   
1-410-100-254

this one is not the first but it started in March when I got my number.  This one and hundreds of others like it, belong to a Mobile credit card.  
I see every single purchase, every denial.  
this is private information I do not want to see.  
I have blocked every number since I received the first one.  
I have saved the messages to show her if she doesn’t believe me.  
only problem I have is i found out who she is,

I cannot   I cannot get in touch with her, because I do not know her.    
very very frustrating

Good morning receiving text messages from scammer 1-410-100-006 and 1-410-100-007 first one said click here for USAA BANK SAVINGS and second one say Click here for NAVY FEDERAL BANK SAVINGS. If this many people are reporting we should not have to do anything else AT & T should have investigatiing and tracked these people or person down by now.

I have started to receive these messages (several per day) recently, and it's incredible frustrating and a bit unnerving wondering if this "person" is getting my information somehow. It's discouraging to see that this post was created in 2017, and people are still dealing with this. It's a nuisance.

I just adjusted my settings to Filter Unknown Senders, so hopefully that will help, but there has got to be a way for spammers like this to be stopped completely.
