Text Message Spam with rotating numbers

I keep getting spam text messages that include the name Lester (which is not my name) pawning a wide variety of "services" and products.  Is there a way to filter messages using keywords?

Customer Support

We're sorry to hear that you're receiving spam text messages that include the name "Lester." Spam text messages can be quite annoying and we apologize for your inconvenience. Let's work together to get this resolved. You may forward the suspected Spam message to SMS short code 7726 (SPAM). Once received, you will receive an SMS requesting a reply with the "From" address. The result will be a free text message with a “Thank you” notification and the investigation will begin. You will not receive any further updates once complete. Verizon offers several options to help our customers block numbers, calls, ads, text messages, and emails. Please visit our website to view these options at We're confident that this information will be helpful to you. - RobertC_VZW
