Scam Calls & SMS

What is the SMS Scam Filter?

In effort to combat the rising number of scams targeted at consumers via SMS, Telstra have turned on a brand-new feature to find and block SMS scam messages with suspicious links as they travel across the Telstra Mobile Network, to stop many of them before they reach your mobile device.

This involves deploying capabilities to detect and block SMS messages identified as scam and stopping
the message before they reach the end user. This will reduce the volume of scam messages that are sent to those on the Telstra Mobile Network using SMS.
