Spam texts

I have Norton 360 protection on my phone and iPad but I have been receiving numerous suggestive texts which are also being sent to a group of 20 numbers. I have attempted to block the numbers and delete the texts, but the texts are appearing more often - perhaps two or three a day. My phone settings are set to filter them out, but to no avail. 

How can I make this madness go away?
