Premium Message Blocking - What does recipient and sender see?

I recently blocked all texts that could come via a website or PC under the Verizon Safeguards link because I was receiving harrassing texts, and I am wondering what would I see if someone were to attempt to send me a text from their email or website?  I also am interested in what the sender would see on their end after attempting to send the text. 

 

Since changing this setting to block these types of texts, I have recently been receiving texts that say the following:

 

"Premium Messaging to this mobile number has been blocked.  Only the account owner may request a change to this setting with his/her wireless provider".    Is this message an alert to me that someone has attempted to sent me a text????

 

Thanks in advance for your help!!!!

Yes, the message you received from VZW was to inform you that a premium message was sent to your mobile number, but it didn't come through because the block is enabled.

 

If a VZW customer attempts to send you a premium message, they will get this message(the subscriber (Mobile Directory Number) has Premium Messaging Block enabled.).

 

If you make an attempt to send a premium message, you will get this message(Premium Messaging to this mobile number has been blocked. Only the Account Owner may request a change to this setting with his/her wireless service provider.).

Thank you Natavia for that answer!  That is what I thought.  I just wish there was a way to confirm where these are coming from.  Before I blocked all messages of this nature, they would usually come in as unverified sender because obviously the sender wants to remain anonymous.  So glad this blocking feature is now an option for eliminating this type of harrassment!
