Use India Against Spam app to report. It works amazingly. You'll get call a back from your operator in 2-3 days after reporting and in most cases they deactivate the sender's number.
Edit : Spelling
You can report such messages to 1909, there is a format you follow. There is an Android app which does the work for you. Be ready for a follow up call from telecom company but the solution shall be permanent.
Edit: Here is a old article about it.
India against SPAM - developed by an Indian developer. IT has worked for me on most occasions. It eases the process of reporting DND violations to your operator.
This app, in conjunction with Truecaller blocking, seems to have kept the telemarketers at bay for me...
DISCLAIMED: I am NOT affiliated with the app or the developer. Just a satisfied user, that's all. :)
You can write directly to TRAI, if nothing else works.
I use this app to format and send complaints to my provider, Voda (Mumbai) - https://play.google.com/store/apps/details?id=com.deepakj.smspam&hl=en
Time to play by their rules. If you get another of these SMS/Calls use this app to report the incident to 1909 as and when they happen.
I used to use this a few years ago. Airtel always replied to all my complaints. At least a dozen times I was told that the offending phone service was disconnected due to repeat violations
also IOS doesnt let apps read msgs or something like that.
anyhow there isnt a database, since the msg banks are bought almost every day and the numbers change way too often almost like use and throw.
This guy made a reporting app though helps kill numbers, at least thats what i hope it does, rather wish-full thinking since TRAI is just a bunch of useless turds.
Install this App if you are on Android and report such numbers. Works great. As there is way report such number on DND and the app makes the procedure easy.
In India, TRAI (Telecom Regulatory Authority of India) have a service wherein one can forward a spammer's details to them and that will block their number.
There's an app called India Against Spam which takes advantage of this process and helps users automate it (sort of).
Check out the app, in case you have something like that in the UK or Turkey and you want to add that as a feature to your app too.
EDIT: India Against Spam
