Help Phantom Emergency alert every 15 min

My Samsung Galaxy J7 prime got an emergency alert yesterday, and now it does a phantom emergency alert(only the sound and vibration) every 5 minutes or so. I have to leave the phone off, it is unusable. I looked up how to disable the alerts and followed the instructions in the advanced notification settings; this did not stop the phantom emergency alerts.
