Marking SMS from business providers as Spam using phrases

I am using Galaxy A50 and surprisingly I cannot mark any SMS from business as SPAM. FOr example if I get SMS offers from Uber or Babaj finance, I cannot mark it as spam since it does not have a number. 

Operating system should have options to mark spam using phrases.

Can anyone help?

@Cancer: If you open the SMS message and tap the 3 dots in the top right corner of the conversation thread, you can choose to block the contact from there. Another option to try is to open the Phone app > Tap the 3 dots in the top right > Settings > Block Numbers > Block Unknown Callers > On, although this might not work if the messages have a named sender. What I'd suggest is contacting Uber and Babaj Finance directly, or checking their app settings if you have them installed, and enquiring about opting out of their marketing comms. Hope this helps.

Hi,

In the options you have given we can block numbers but not from a business which does nto have any number.\Please check the attached snap shot in which when we open sms , we do not find any 3 dots and you canot block since we do not have any number of the business sender.

I do not have any apps related to those business installed in my phone.
