On my PC I can label a mail junk and from then on it goes to the junk file. On my cell phone (samsung galaxy note 4) I have 2 options to register it as spam.

Block the sender

Block the Domain.

There is one sender, Lifelock, that I have tried both ways and it keeps showing up. The domain name will change some letters and reappear. Same with the sender addy. So how does this happen and is there anything further I can do? Almost as tho there is a proggy on the phone mixing up letters so the ad can get thru.

Assuming you already tried getting them to remove your number from their call/text lists by contacting them directly and it hasn't worked. File a complaint with the FCC including relevant information (your contact information, description of the unwanted spam, etc). Given the kind of company they are, sending the FCC breathing down their necks should get it resolved reasonably quickly once they get to it.

If you look at the bottom of the email, there may be an unsubscribe link. This is industry standard for scrupulous marketing firms. I've had a pretty good success rate using these, though obviously you should scrutinize the email for legitimacy before clicking.

Problem is…you actually have to click on spam…and that is something I will never do, hell I turned off the preview pane years ago.

I constantly get spam from Lifelock, from a different domain every day, I just keep blocking them, and realize this is the reality of the day.

Thanks for the replies. Turns out Lifelock does have a unsubscribe button. clicked on it and I see you get taken to a slte called Mega Marketing. Anyway, lets see if I get any more ads.
