Still getting those pesky spam and scam text messages on your mobile phones? One of the ways you can do to get rid of them is to report those numbers to your telecommunications service provider for deactivation. Read on to learn how to do it.
• Submit a Spam Message Report via globe.com.ph/stopspam
All you need to do is fill out the eight required fields which include your name, mobile number, and the details of spammer or scammer’s mobile number and message. You can also upload a screenshot of the spam or scam message.
• Tweet or send via DM (Direct Message) the spammer or scammer’s mobile number and the exact content of the message (preferably via screenshot) to Globe’s Twitter account @talk2GLOBE.
• Submit a report via smart.com.ph/postpaid/smart2know
Like Globe’s, you just need to fill out a report with the option to send a screenshot. It’s a lot simpler though as you only need to fill out three required fields.
• Call Smart’s hotline at *888.
• Report by sending a tweet to Smart’s Twitter account @SmartCares
Another way of getting rid of spam and scam text messages is to block them using your phone’s built-in number blocker or with the use of an app. However, those numbers remain functional and can still send to other numbers. Help eliminate spam and scam by reporting those numbers to your respective telcos.
