35% Discount on Sun Postpaid Scam

For most people this would be really obvious. But for the sake of those people without the talent of "smelling" scams and are still susceptible to "too good to be true" offers, here's the detail of the Sun Postpaid Scam.

Your Number is Selected For 35% Discount

The scam begins with a random message from an unregistered number saying:
Suncellular:You're the one selected postpaid plan that given 35% discount on your bill.To get your 35% discount just forward the 17-digit secret code to 2292.You will receive the 17-digit secret code on the next message.

It may or may not include the so called "17-digit secret code". In my case, I received it after a few minutes.
50 09225533524 4222

Transfer 50 Pesos of Load to the Number

 If didnt get it, well, here's how it works. When you enter the 17 digit code and send it to 2292, you are actually sending 50 pesos load to the number. I read from Sun Cellular's website that the maximum transaction for postpaid accounts is up to 500 pesos.

You will just find out that you transferred load to the number after you send the code because Sun will send a message confirming the transfer. But by then, it would be too late.

Register SIM Cards

In the United States, people are required to register their SIM card numbers. This prevents people from using that tiny chip to cheat on others. It has been in discussion past several years here in the country. But until now, there is no clear path to it.

Anyway, until such a law is in place, we all need to be careful. With the advent of social networks, the bad guys are also updating their methods to victimize more people.

  3. So first you soak your Red Wheat Berries, for 8-24 hours. You can buy Red Wheat Berries at your local health food store, often in the bulk section. And yes wheatgrass is gluten free. I too, was concerned, but after searching around and asking a licensed dietitian friend in the area, the grass itself does not contain any gluten, only the kernel, and in juicing wheatgrass you only juice the grass, so yay!

  4. Mellowed by this profound knowledge of letting go, middle-aged love is less arrogant,more abject and more philosophical. Unlike in the first flush of youth when love is at the very first sight and its demise is at the very first slight, love, if it at all happens at this age, is rather with a philosophical construct, than with a person.

How Much Does a MRI Scan Costs in the Philippines?

My dad recently needs to have a Magnetic Resonance Imaging (MRI) scan for his prostate problem. So I made a little research on how much does it cost to have one. Well, turns out, it depends on many factors such as which part of the body is to be scanned. There's also this technique called "MRI with contrast" wherein the patient will be injected with a chemical to make the scan clearer. For your information this technique of adding contrast is know as Gadolinium Contrast Medium. It adds cost to the procedure but with more clarity, the more you can trust the diagnosis.

So, in my father's case, we had a Prostate MRI and I assume it's without contrast since he was never injected with the "contrast" chemicals. We got it in i-Scan Healthcare Inc here in Quezon City. The cost is 13000 Pesos. Please take not that the amount was just for the scan and the result will be read by a separate professional. Some laboratories offer this service (i.e. the reading) and t…

FREE Calls to Your Favorite Fast-food Chain on Globe Phones

In the age of mobile apps and ordering via internet, people are increasingly going from "calling" to "tapping and clicking" their fast food orders. The arrival of Honestbee, Foodpanda and just recently, Grab Food is a testament to how much this trend is growing. The visual effect these apps provide has a huge advantage over voice only "call".



In an apparent attempt to pull back some users in using the hotlines, Jollibee Group teams up with Globe Telecoms to allow free calls on their Globe handset to order from their favorite fastfood. Yes, even without a load, you can make a call to the Hotlines. Here's the promotional poster.

Just dial these numbers to order:
Jollibee - #87000 Mang Inasal - #71111 Chowking - #98888 Greenwich - #55555 Burger King - #22222

SCAM: My First Scam Text This Year; 850000 Pesos from GMA Kapuso Foundation

It's a brand new year for everyone, including local scammers. And despite all the efforts by PLDT and Globe Telecom to curb text message scammers, from time to time, they still creep out and show up in our inboxes. And as hard to believe as the messages of winning some great amounts of money is the fact that there are still people who believe them. I personally know someone and that scam text message triggered events that turn her life upside down. So my point is, we still need to be careful regarding these scam messages. The danger is real!


So without further ado, here's the scam message I received a few days ago. On Sunday, January 7, 2018 at exactly 3:33PM (PH time), I received this message from a certain Atty. Jhon Acosta with phone number 09552962911
