You can report a spam text number to your mobile phone provider by forwarding the number to 7726 (which spells out SPAM .. in the old way that phones used to be).

I didn’t know that !!

Got one of these (woke me up ... at 04:50 ... 🙄 ), supposedly from Hermes and needing £1.45 paid).

Forwarded it to 7762, but can’t know what good that did.

(actually, thinking about it ... I forwarded the message (to Vodafone, as it is my provider) but not the mobile number, so nothing will come of this ... however, it proves that the 7762 thing works !)

It works !

Got one today from HSBC ... passed the text message to 7726.

Got an automated response from Vodafone (my provider), asking me to send them the number it came from.

Did that.

Got another back from vodafone, saying the number I sent is "now logged for review".
