It is getting more common to receive phishing attempts and spam via text (SMS) messaging - sometimes referred to as smishing. These messages can be reported to your carrier.
Here is an example of a phishing message received via text message. Never click on a link in a suspicious text message! You can report such messages directly from your phone.
Copy the contents of the message to new text message and send to 7726 (SPAM). This will report the message to your carrier.
Sending a phishing/spam example to your carrier should prompt an automated response asking for the sender's number. Copy the number that sent the phishing/spam message and respond to the automated message from 7726.
An alternative is to report the phishing/spam message to SpamResponse.
