Sprint Block Text Facility Fails to Stop SPAM Originating from Email Address!!!!

Why does Sprint's Block Text facility fail to block SPAM originating from txt@info.com?  These text messages are phishing by attempting to spoof a Bank of America (with whom I have no business relationship) request to call a phone number. This problem is nationwide and well documented at:  http://news.cnet.com/8301-1009_3-57508716-83/phishing-attacks-via-text-spiked-this-week-researcher/.   I keep sending "Spam txt@info.com" to 9999 which responds thanking me for reporting the issue, and by adding txt@info.com to my Block text list, but the SPAM continues to come!!!  Why can't Sprint fix their Block text facility -- my ONLY line of defense.
