    That's not from BlackBerry. It's PIN spam. Delete it and ignore it.

    Scam.
    Fraudsters are spoofing BlackBerry (RIM, which doesn't exist anymore, so dead giveaway) using P2P PIN messaging to try and trick people into sending them money for the "fees" for the "free prizes they won".

    It isn't spam via BBM.

    PIN spam is done via a direct messaging system done peer to peer (P2P) using the device PIN.
    On the legacy BlackBerry devices, you could disable/block this via the device firewall, "Block PIN Messages"
    To see what the PIN messaging system looks like, go into the Hub, tap the three bars in the lower left, scroll to the bottom to PIN Messages.

    So, native, there is no way to block PIN messages, however third party filtering/blocking apps are available that can.
