A new knowledge base article on Apple’s website introduces an iMessage spam reporting system.

To report unwanted iMessage messages to Apple, please send an email with the following details to: imessage.spam@icloud.com

  1. Include a screenshot of the message you have received.
  2. Include the full email address or phone number you received the unwanted message from.
  3. Include the date and time that you received the message.

While iOS 7 allows for blocking Apple IDs for iMessage or FaceTime, this feature will allow users of iOS 5 and up to report unwanted iMessage messages and allow Apple to investigate the associated account..
