SPAM Political text messages

All 4 phones on my account received a text message this morning from 1(410) 100-001 with a link to a YouTube page. None of us clicked on the link but I went on YouTube to see if I can find what this was and it appears to be a darn political ad talking about how "first time in decades we have a somebody with INTEGRITY". The name "Jim" appears in the from section and the subject line is "Together" along with the link www.youtube.com/watch?v=nyhfJTFJHu8. We did NOT sign up to receive these messages and I really want it to stop! They came in at 4AM and woke everyone up. We all have iPhones and we live in Pennsylvania so I know whoever the ***hole who sent it did so because of the Primary that is happening this week. Very annoying and not wanted!

This has nothing to do with ATT.  Att does not give or sell your numbers or information out to anyone.

Hello @Moe2016

 

I don't know what device you have but have you tried blocking the number from the device? 

 

below is a link on how to do it on IOS and a Android app that should do the job  

 

IOS: Link

Android: Call Blocker app

I have the iPhone 6s and yes, we all blocked the number but it doesn't fix the fact that the dirtbag woke everyone up at 4AM. Our numbers are all registered on the DO NOT CALL LIST so to say we are upset is an understatement.

Well, it's a do not call list, not a do not text list. On top of that, the do not call list only stops sales calls, not political calls.
