Rallenatl, I understand your concern receiving multiple different messages to your email account. I would be as well if this was happening to me. What device are you using Verizon Messages with? Have you uninstalled the last update to the application? If not please do so to see if this stops the messages from sending.

I'm having the same exact problem, and doing a search on this, it appears many other customers are having this problem as well, dating back several months.  Why hasn't this been fixed by now?  It almost seems as if someone is trying a different pin number every 15 minutes from this number:  900080004102 until they get a match.  And it's the same number that's messaging several other people. I have blocked these on my phone, but can't block them on my Outlook email for some reason. I got about 50 of them since yesterday, and this has been going on for days now.

Getting these multiple messages can be a little much, TrishCats. We want to ensure we get these to stop coming through so much to you. What make and model phone do you have? Have you checked your Messages+ app to ensure you have the most recent updates installed?
