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

Ursim# Hadwon PHP850,000
&Call Me Now

 Do Not Ever Reply

Obviously, this is a scam. It bears all the marks of it namely, unexpected win of a huge amount of money, unknown sender, don't know your name and a request for a call. But some chose to reply with nasty words or even curses. They may reason that it doesn't cost them anything and that they just want to have fun.  While that may prove to be harmless, it may not always the best thing to do. Here's some logical reasons:

  1.  Some of this just randomly key in phone numbers or get it from poor sources. Replying will just tell them that the number they have sent to is valid and exists. That information may help them attack you in the future with more subtle methods.
  2. It's a waste of time and energy. Let's face it, it's not worth it.
So, what scam messages have you received this year? Let me know by your comments!
