What do I do if I receive a spam text message?

Spam text messages are sent to mobiles usually to advertise a product or service. If you do not recognise the number, we would recommend you not to reply, as this could be a message sent to identify active numbers which could result in more messages being received.

Ofcom has useful information about how to avoid unwanted calls and texts, you can read more about it here.
