What's your device?
Could be a malicious App that's trying to send it on your behalf.

Try backing up your SMS then delete them all & restore them.

I did some digging and it is spam.

Lee, are you able to text out to other people without issues?

Okay, so I've done some digging, 47777 is evidently the code for iMessage, why your LG A341 is trying to route through iMessage is a bit beyond me (as iMessage is for Apple products only) but you're not the first I've seen. I'd recommend contacting Koodo's tech support and we'll log an investigation ticket to figure this out.

Try texting STOP to that short code number and see if that works.

Or even try texting HELP and see if you get a response with instructions.
