This paper introduces a technique for increasing the rate of accuracy in spam filtering and reducing the false positive (fp) in Farsi SMS. This technique is based on combination of naïve bayes assumption with an introduced formula to increase the filtering accuracy up to 90%. In order to validate introduced formula and to measure the accuracy, the obtained results have been surveyed by precision-Recall techniques.
