Getting spam through my text on my mobile

Hi guys,

Recently, I have been getting spam through on my texts, which says the following:

     "SHARKS P4 v Gracemount Sat Apr 16th 09:30am@ The Meadows. Meet 09:10AM Text Y ,or N. COLLECT MONEY w/ TEAMER PAYMENTS..."

Then it adds a bit.ly address which I won't put as it could be a dangerous address.  It's from a number which is 80688.

Any idea on how I get it stopped??  I've tried blocking the number, but obviously, that hasn't worked as I'm still getting the texts and it's starting to frustrate me.

Damo

If I get anymore from this number, I try it.  I had just deleted the texts. Doh!

Hopefully, your way will work.

Man, it looks as if you know the Internet better than me, Alex. I didn't even know how to find out the details about the number.

Thank you, matey.
