Hi ScottL, I recommend calling *611 to have a customer service representative investigate this for you.

I too am receiving these, and from what I can tell on the internet that many people are receiving these.  Telus should acknowleding these spam texts are coming in and doing something about it.

(999) 999-9999 is also the number of record for any Telus "Send A Text" or "Send a Message" texts sent through either the Telus interface or directly from an email client. This would suggest it is not sensibly blockable, as it is possibly any of a huge number of senders, but also there may be an opportunity to filter if the spam has enough in common, or trace if reported.
