iMessage is a competent instant messaging service that offers the most basic features and for the most part, it gets the job done. However, if you have used this messaging app before, you must have received those annoying spam messages.

In order to start reporting spam messages, you can report it to Apple by following the official instructions below:
If you’re seeing unwanted iMessages (spam) in Messages app, you can report those to Apple.
To report unwanted iMessage messages to Apple, please send an email with the following details to: firstname.lastname@example.org
1. Include a screenshot of the message you have received.
2. Include the full email address or phone number you received the unwanted message from.
3. Include the date and time that you received the message.
