There is a feature to report spam messages. It is the exclamation point button between the delete and quote buttons in the upper right hand corner of the message.

Exclamation Point is the Report button

Tapping on the report button brings up this screen. From there you can pick why you are reporting the message or fill in the description box if the reason doesn't fall into one of the two provided reasons.

A PM of an unsolicited video to someone else's channel or website would fall under the "The reported message has the only purpose to advertise for a website or another product" reason.

Please do report the message. As Perturbee mentioned in the opening post, if spam PMs aren't reported we don't know they are being sent and can't see/read them. By reporting the PMs we can see/read the PM and act accordingly. :)

I got a spam message but deleted it straight away, next time I'll report it. It was from a user called EmilyTheft, I think some sort of advertisement, nothing particularly offensive just spam.
