How long does it take for block a number to take effect

Some random people from the internet got hold of my number and added me to a group chat of 6 people and have non stop spammed me for a whole day now. So I blocked all their numbers, yet I am still receiving messages from them non-stop. Can anyone help?

It should be effective immediately, do you have an Apple product, perhaps they're using iMessage.
