Receive Text from Strange Numbers

One of my lines has recently began to receive texts from numbers like this one...000-003-2665. There are more with different last 5 digits. Not on all lines, only on one of them. 

Does anyone know what these types of texts are? 

How does this get started?

Can I block them from coming in? 

Are these porn or psychic texts?

Do they cost a fee?

We know how important it is to know who is sending you text messages, and we will be more than happy to help, Tracersx. Was there any information provided on the text received by this number?  DavidR_VZW
