Taming Your Inbox: Text Spam Arrest

In an age where our digital inboxes are constantly swarmed with unwanted messages, Text Spam Arrest emerges as a vigilant protector, dedicated to keeping your texting world free of annoying distractions and potential scams. The sophisticated AI engine at the heart of this app not only filters out spam with incredible accuracy but also intelligently sorts genuine messages into easily manageable sub-folders.

The Problem

Each year, individuals and businesses suffer significant financial losses due to text message scams. According to the FTC, consumers lost an average of $1,000 in 2022, totaling around $330 million, while businesses faced losses of about $660 million.

The Solution: Text Spam Arrest

To combat this issue, Text Spam Arrest was developed. Its AI engine is a culmination of extensive training, incorporating the entirety of the English vocabulary, and a keen awareness of diverse online scams. This powerful combination enables the app to safeguard against various types of intrusions, particularly the top scam categories identified by the FTC, such as:

  • Imposter Scams
  • Online Shopping Scams
  • Prizes, Sweepstakes, and Lotteries Scams
  • Investment Related Scams
  • Business and Job Opportunity Scams

Alongside its spam-blocking prowess, Text Spam Arrest offers an organized approach to handling non-spam messages from unknown numbers by sorting them into categories:

  • Promotions: Captures all deals, offers, and rewards-related texts.
  • Transactions: This folder serves as an umbrella for various sub-categories such as:
  • Finance: Notifications about banking and credit/debit transactions.
  • Orders: Order confirmations from retailers.
  • Reminders: Notifications for appointments or bookings.
  • Health: Messages from medical services.
  • Weather: Alerts about severe weather or earthquakes.
  • Carrier: Updates from your internet or wireless service provider.
