I received them very often in the 1st half of this year. Made the mistake of trying to unsubscribe by replying "UN" as instructed. That only invited more spam from property agents. Learnt to just ignore the SMS and the volume trickled down.

So don't respond to those SPAM messages at all.

Thanks for the link. I went in to read. Great read! To stop receiving spam sms is never to unsubscribe / reply back to spams.

SMS easy to ignore. It is those unsolicited marketing calls from insurance companies to spa to property, etc that I find irritating.
