This works just like blocking unwanted calls. After going through this process, you do not need to worry about getting those unwanted messages from the contact you blocked. Also, the contact you blocked will not be notified that they are blocked from sending you messages. In fact, when they try to send messages to you, it’ll likely show up as “Sent”.

This will apply to both text messages and iMessage (if the recipient owns an iOS device). Let me know in the comments section if this worked for you and if you were able to successfully stop the spam messages. If you got stuck at any stage, let me know too. Happy to help!
