put the number into your contacts as 'scammer 1' etc and then block it in contacts

I don't know if this helps but on the note 10 there is an option to block numbers in the 3 dot menu in messages.

@Members_9f0F4Sq: There's a few things you can attempt. If you open the Messages app > Tap on the relevant text > Tap the 3 dots in the top right, you can select 'Block Contact' from here. Alternatively, open the Messages app > Tap the 3 dots in the top right > Settings > Block Numbers and Messages > Block Numbers, and apply the block from here. You can also enable Caller ID and Spam Protection by opening the Phone app > Tap the 3 dots in the top right > Settings > Caller ID and Spam Protection > On, to show information about unknown callers and telemarketers. I hope this helps.
