Spam texts

I have been receiving spam texts for about a year and they won't stop. Can't block the text like I can a call. This is very upsetting. I'm receiving more than a dozen a day.

Hi sweeterthanhunnie2000,


Avoid opening spam messages and text scams. Please check if the Trend Micro Fraud Buster is enabled on your device, it checks your messages for security threats whenever you receive an SMS or MMS. Here's how:

  1. Open the Mobile Security app.
  2. From the list of features, select Fraud Buster
  3. Allow all the needed permissions.
  4. Read the Fraud Buster Data Collection, then tap Accept.
  5. Toggle the switch to ON beside the Fraud Buster.

Please make sure that the Trend Micro app is updated. You may follow this link on how to upgrade Mobile Security for Android to its latest version.


Let me know if you need more help.

Hi, !


Never reply and don't click any links from these messages. Have you tried to report the numbers? Here's how you can report spam on Android:
