Anyone else recently getting a flood of spam texts from Area Code 469?

It seems like since the last week of December, I suddenly started getting spam text messages from area code 469. Every single one is a different phone number so blocking them individually seems to do nothing. Anyone else having the same issue? Last week, my work cell phone started getting texts from 469 as well.

Any apps for IOS that can block texts from specific area codes?

The phone calls go to VM unless they are in my contact which is nice. So I just clean out the VMs later in the day. I probably get about 4 to 5 warranty calls and 2/3 refinance my credit card offers.

The annoying part is even if I just filter to ’Known Senders’ in iMessage, I just show an unread text and a lot of them are being sent early in the AM.

Ever since the election finished... most of my spam texts/calls disappeared

Still average around 3 a day but they don't call on the weekends anymore :hs:

No idea how they got her name with my number.

I get calls and text for my mother about wanting to buy a specific property she owns, they mention that address not the basic "we were in the area and saw your house and would like to make an offer".

I suspect it is because she is (clearly) associated with my father and some of those online peoplefinder tools think that I am an alias that my dad uses.
