Since last year spam sms text messages are getting really annoying. I daily receive around 5 to 6 SMS with some advertisement about something and I have no idea from where they got my number to list it down their spamming list. SMS packages are very low-cost in Pakistan which resulted in SMS spamming. Finally Pakistan Telecommunication Authority (PTA) has taken action towards it and introduced a service to report spam messages. It is announced publically by PTA that legal actions will be taken against the companies and individuals who are sending spam sms text messages.
How to Report Spam SMS Text Message to PTA?
Anyone using any mobile service (Mobilink, Telenor, Warid, Ufone, Zong) can report spam SMS text message to PTA.
Simply send SMS to ‘9000’ with the following details:
- Sender’s number
- Sender’s SMS text message (including any details you want to add further)
- Your number
(Note: SMS to 9000 will be charged at Rs.0.10/sms)
