Beware: Text and Load Scammers
A few hours ago, my father received a text message from someone he don't know. The SMS sender is asking my father to give him/her 8 pesos worth of prepaid credits because of some important thing he/she has to say. Here's the actual SMS:
meron ako importante sasabihen sayo di na ako makaka reply call ka nalang or share a load 8peso e2 new number ko,
My father texted the number using Globe's Text-Back-Mo-Libre-Ko service to ask who he/she is and so he/she could reply for free. The message sender didn't reply. I just told my father to wait for the reply since this might be one of those scams.
Just a few minutes ago, I received the exact SMS (yes, even the comma at the end of the message). My number and my dad's mobile number is almost the same, only the last 2 digits are different. If this person has no more credits, why waste his/her precious peso and ask me to give him/her 8 pesos? And why send the exact message to both of us? Scam artist alert. :~) BTW, here's the mobile number he/she used: +63(915)6006662... :~)
