PIN notifications in the middle of the night

I keep getting PIN notifications around 3am Atlantic time that come from some news server in Nigeria.  I have no clue how they got my PIN as I've never registered for this.  Is it possible to block a PIN?  Any idea how to stop this?

Re: PIN notifications in the middle of the night

Hey s754706,

Welcome to the BlackBerry Support Community Forums.

 

Thanks for the question.

 

PIN Messages can not be blocked on the BlackBerry Z10.  Try going into Settings>Location Services and turn Location Based Ads off.

 

Let me know if you have any more questions.

 

Cheers.

I did this and unfortunately it didn't work as I got a PIN afterwards.  The PIN # is and it refers to a site ipaidabribenaija...on the site, there's no way to unsubscribe and I don't know how they got my PIN
