I'm pretty sure many of us have received a similar message on our mobile phone like this:

I received this message from +639072471248 this morning:
Congrats! Ur sim # won Php. 950,000 2nd Prize Draw Last Jan/05/2011 Pls call me now.I'm Sec. Noel A. Mendez Auditor of Phils. Charity Foundation DTI.1344.


Our company phone (postpaid line) usually receives messages like this. I decided to call the number, not to claim the prize but to rage over this scammer.

Phone ringing...

"Alleged Noel Mendez" : (in a not-so-secretary-ish voice) Hello..sino po ito? (NAG-TAGALOG SI SECRETARY?!)


Me: You called me, you said I won P950,000..

ANM: Kayo po ba yung naka-receive ng message?

Me: What's your name?

ANM: Nakalagay na po dun ( this time, sounding like a little angry)

Me: Then why don't you tell me your name?

ANM: I'm Noel Mendez..

Me: And you're a secretary? Style n'yo bulok! Scammer! I've reported you to the police! They are tracking your number now!

ANM: Go ahead! Di mo malalaman ang location ko!

Me: Maghintay ka lang, they'll be arresting you any minute from now!

He turned off the phone.

Still not satisfied, I sent him this message:

Style n'yo bulok. Ang alam nyo lang mag-collect ng sim cards para makapangloko ng kapwa nyo.Sabay-sabay sana kayong sunugin sa impyerno. Halang ang mga bituka n'yo. Maghanap kayo ng matinong trabaho! Mga impakto kayo!

***

Funny how he claims to be a secretary when he doesn't have sufficient load to call the 'winners' if this is really legit. Time and again, we have been warned. I usually make 'patol' to this scammers just to make them feel that we are aware of their effin' moves.

AGAIN, should you receive such message from the Phils. Charity Foundation, this is a SCAM! In order to win in a raffle, one must submit an entry,and you dont have to pay to claim your prize. They usually ask for celphone loads in P300 for them to process your claim.

There is privately funded concerned citizen group heading a private investigation on the syndicate behind these text scams since the government is doing nothing about it and are probably coordinating with the NBI with the investigation. May mga leads na sila. Matagal na rin pala ongoing ang investigation na ito and may finally have an entrapment soon. Lets wish for their success and help the investigating team by sharing details about experiences, may research team na din kasi on this. Thanks!
