Unwarranted text messages

I am receiving a lot of text messages from 1(410)100-### and 1(410)200-###, about 75 of them so far. I tried to block those numbers on my phone. I also replied STOP to two of them. Neither of the attempts resolved the issue. Getting very annoyed. How can I get the messages to stop?

Those numbers mean the texts are coming through the email to text gateway. Replying “stop” is probably the worst thing you can do as that just tells the spammers know they have a live number. There really is no way to block them I know of but you can forward them to SPAM (7726) and hopefully ATT will block them.
