Thanks for your suggestion. Neither works. These are messages sent from email addresses so the 3 dots on the sms doesn't work. In fact the option to block the contact doesn't even pop up with these texts.
You can turn off the notifications, they will still be in your messages but at least they won't sound or light up your phone.
1. Open the message from the email you dont want
2. Click the 3 lines for more options on the top right
3. Click notification type and change it to custom
4. There should be a gear wheel next to custom now open that
5. Turn off notifications for your custom message notification and your email texts will be silent.
Samsung should allow blocking emails, but hopefully this helps reduce your issue.
Most phone carriers offer a way to use your phone number as an email
Actually, lately I have been completely overwhelmed by an extreme amount of spam emails coming into my Samsung Galaxy S10 in the form of text messages. They all have a link leading me to varying bogus sites that all appear to be legit but are all clearly fradulant.
One example is , "Hey K******n, your Netflix subscription has expired. Contact us to get a free year" Or " Our FedEx delivery driver has made the last attempt to deliver your package. Please contact us immediately to make arrangements for delivery"
I am seriously, no exaggeration am receiving no less than 5 to 6 of these messages a day at all hours of the day/night. I have blocked every single number that they come in from and yet they still come in from another number. I am at witts end!
Please, if anyone has advice please help.. And yes, I have done that thing where I hit the three dots at the top right-hand side of the message app and filtered out messages and everything else I could find to do online 🤯
I am with you! It is driving me crazy and online it says I can report spam messages but can't find anywhere to do it in my S10+. I am at witts end too especially when they come in at 4am
I'm with Kbirbs1, this is getting out of hand. I have an S8. How do we block emails that come through as text messages? There is no block option in the 3 dot menu
