I have premium messaging blocked but I'm still getting short code spam?

So lately I have been getting short code messages (271-26) for some company called "Lango" bothering me to download their crappy (a probably virus-laden) software on my iPhone. I have premium messaging blocked on my account as well as web and email message blocking, but these people are still getting through! I'm up to my eyeballs with frustration and all Verizon can tell me is to "reply stop". Really? I have an umbrella block on all this crap so why is it getting through in the first place? Is anyone else having this same issue?

Have you verified they aren't coming through as iMessages?

I'm most definitely NOT a VZW employee. If a post answered your question, please mark it as the answer.

That is a great point that Ann154 has mentioned.
Have you been able to confirm whether or not the messages are iMessages or not?
