How to block SMS with no phone number?

Lately I’ve been getting a flurry of spam SMSes from loan companies, tuition agencies etc. Problem is that most of these spammers don’t have any numbers so “Block this caller” can’t & doesn’t work.

Is there any other way to block these SMS spammers?

BTW, I’m on iOS 11.4.1.

Thanks in advance.

good to block no number calls ah longs (but ownself set) and most importantly the sms with no number, usually came with names instead of numbers

I’ve installed Truecaller quite sometime back, no use at all although I enabled it. Finally found VeroSMS - using the free version & it’s filtering out 95% of these spam SMS.
