Text Messages that want me to click link because of virus

I keep getting text messages that show me a link to use. It says my phone is infected with a virus and it's draining my data usage. the link is (do not click). It shows it is coming from Verizon Free Msg. The phone number is 929-585-5697. This isn't the only number that I have gotten this text from that is why I am certain it is a virus related message.
