Annoying text scams

I only use my cellphone when it’s really needed. I text my sisters, friends and former classmates. I call whenever I complain to Digitel. In short, I only my phone on important things. That’s why it’s annoying to receive messages from your carrier and most specially, from text scammers.

As a precaution to others, I am posting some messages that I have received.

From 09262471717: “Congratulations! Last 11/13/2007 Ur Cell# had Won P200, 000, 00 +N73 Unit frm: New PCCNS DTI-Permit#9170 Series of 2007 Call me Now! IM Atty Henry Morales”

From 09265582408: “Congratulations!!! Pres. GMA Charity Fund. Ur Sim# have Won! P680,000 Thousand. oct. 19/2007, DTI PRMT#0010/4 more info? Call no. Atty. Amor L. Lopez”

From 09264150098: “Congratulations! Pres. GMA Charity Fund. Ur Sim# had Won!680,000.00 07/22/2007 > 4 more info? Pls call me now! I’m Sec. Manuel C. Manding”

From 09267770212: “Congratulations: Last 06/21/2007 Ur cell# had Wond P900,000 + Nokia 6630 Unit from: new Pagcro DTI-NCR Permit#2578 Series of 2007 Call Now Atty: Carlo C. Diaz ”

This one from 290: Public Advisory: Beware of text messages informing you that you;ve won a prize. We never ask our winners for cash or prepaid loads to claim a prize. Don’t be a victim!

It makes me wonder why people fell prey on text scams. If you did not join the contest, how can you win? There’s a whole thread of this in the government website.

    sana sa PCCNS, wag kayong magtanga tangahan, ginagamit na ang pangalan ng office nyo wala kayong gingawa o baka may share din kayo. gumawa kayo ng aksyon dito para walang ibang mahirap na tao ang maloloko ang mga ganid na taong ito.

    Ha!I received a text msg last Nov 16,2011.Congratulstion! last 15-nov-11 u’r cell# won1 650,000=N95 unit 3rd winner from PCCNS DTI#7330s2011. Pls call me now. I’m atty. chin lopez. I almost believed it. Well the hell. I also wondered why should I call hi,. I did call bec I was curious. He said to text the whole name age and complete address. Then gave me choices where to send the money. Then asked if I’m near that money courier. Then next time i called. Told me about the company and told me to buy 3 500 worth callcards of TM because this was the final step. I need to give them the combination numbers as validation registration or something that they have to process on the net and in chuchuchu blah blah. The speaker even was not convincing. Its a communication center and how he speaks really laughable. He sound middle aged. He even pass me to his secretary who was worse. Regional accent thing. Whenever they speak in english. Nahnah…
    then i agreed to let me buy first. It will take me 30 minutes to buy them. I went out and search on the net. gash and found this and could not find such company. really a scam.
    Ohh the cel no.+639262664022. even told me not to tell anyone about this electronic raffle for my safety.
    its not pretty safe even in the mobile technology. No decency at all.
