How to Stop Spam texts

My wife and I are getting texts from 1(410) 100-013 . They are coming a few times a day and waking us in the middle of night. They must be spam or something, they make no sense. Is there a way to stop them?

Re: Spam texts

 

Hello @roadcall

 

I am sorry you are getting those spam text messages. 

 

Check http://soc.att.com/1NVtef2 for help to manage these.

 

Texts from this particular short code are usually blocked if you reply to the original message with the word "Block".

Re: Spam texts

There are apps that will silence your phone on a schedule yet allow important alls to come through. If on Android, Silence Premium Do Not Disturb does that very well. I wouldn't go to sleep without it.
