Rubbish.

It's your cellular provider that sends these messages free of charge - a requirement by ICASA.

Either my service provider don't have my number, or a spam filter somewhere kicked in as I never got one of em.

I don't mind them. I receive 20x more spam from cell providers and insurance companies collectively, so at 2 a day for Covid-19 related "warnings", I feel I can handle them.

:ROFL::ROFL::ROFL:I managed to get that SMS blocked, but now my phone displays a message that it has blocked it. Now I have to delete that notice again every time.

I blocked them via Truecaller and turned off the "Notify me about blocked SMS" option.

They don't bother me. I get more spam from banks and insurance companies.

I haven't received one sms from them yet, hope it stays that way.
That is due to malicious hypocrisy from government - they are actively practicing apartheid by excluding landlines from this!

Got that same one on the 15th, prior to that I got the standard message on the 8th.
So still 1 per week for me (expecting the next on 22nd).
