“CONGRATULATIONS! Ur cel # WON Php300, 000 & 1 HONDA CR-V last 02/18/10. For inquiries call this #. This is Ed Pascua, of Phil.Info.Center. Permit #0292 series 2010.”
My question then is: How come that he can give Php300, 000 pesos plus a Honda CR-V and yet he cannot even call me and instead requested me to call him for inquiries? And BTW, I can’t remember any raffle draw I joined in the past 12 months.
This is just one typical example that spreads through mobile text messages. Most people though are aware of these scams and quickly reject it. But there are still people who are victimized by these obvious traps. Some even give money to retrieve the promised prizes. Be careful, when it is too good to be true, it’s probably not true.
