How to spot a spam text message and report it for free using 7726

What to do if you receive a spam text message

  • Forward the spam message to the short code
    (SPAM) so that we can start an investigation. If you receive a number of spam texts, we recommend putting
    into your contact list so that you don't need to remember the numbers

  • Don't respond directly to a phone number where you believe the spam text originated. Responding alerts the spammer that your number is genuine

  • If you're not able to view the number or if it's email spam, forward us the entire message (along with the full header if it's an email)

It's free to report spam
