With the Holidays around the corner please be mindful that unwanted messages are on the rise. Often these messages may look like they are from someone you know but are really a scam looking for personal information. If you get an unwanted text message, do not respond to the message. Instead, there are three ways to report it:
1. Copy the message and forward it to 7726 (SPAM). This helps your wireless provider spot and block similar messages in the future.
2. Report it on the messaging app you use. Look for the option to report junk or spam.
