The Australian Communications and Media Authority launched a new service that allows a user to report text spamming.Called Spam SMS, this ‘reporting tool’ is a simple way to report spam SMS by forwarding messages received to 0429 999 888.

ACMA Chariman, Chris Chapman said, “Young people are increasingly exposed to targeted SMS marketing messages but may be reluctant or indifferent to reporting spam. We can actually do a lot to help in this space, but we have to know about it.”

“Spam SMS is a simple and convenient way to tell us about spam. All you need to do is forward the message to 0429 999 888 as soon as you receive it,” added Chapman.

ACMA says that the information received by Spam SMS will assist them in in its investigations into breaches of the Spam Act.

The “Spam SMS” launch is part of the Australian Government’s National Cybersecurity Awareness Week.
