scam texts and calls

I keep getting texts and calls from the following numbers: 07860021554, 07778562955, 07796233986. regarding debt, ppi and an accident I have never had. what I want to know is, how do I block these texts and calls, (more texts than calls) free of charge. I never call or text them back as I know that they are scammers and when you contact them they know they have a live number and can access details if you contact them in any way. Please can anyone help me to stop these nuicance texts and calls....
