  1. From a concern citizen,

    I am from Cagayan de Oro City
    A friend of mine received a text scam, it says: “ Congratulations! Last 10/30/2011 Ur Cell # had won! P650,000 + N99 frm: (PCCNS) DTI-#8659 series of 2011. Pls. call me now. I’m ATTY. MIGUEL G. LOPEZ. Txt received from 09152008736.

    My friend called him and ask if this is a scam, he told me NO its not a scam. He told that this is approved by DTI and COA.
    He is asking for load worth Php2,700 pesos and money to be use to process the cash prize. He also ask me to pay Php27,000 for tax and the deadline that the BIR gave is today.
    If my friend cannot pay, the cash prize will not be release.
    He also said that whatever money my friend will pay will be reimburse to by PCCNS.
    He said to send the money as soon as possible through Western Union, and Send it to JAMA A. PLAMA (PLEASE investigate this person), the money is to be claim at Western Union, Isulan Branch Sultan Kudarat.

    My friend already gave around Php30,000.00 according to ATTY. LOPEZ will be use to process the papers and documents and send it to JAMA A. PLAMA thru western union.
    Everyday, this ATTY. LOPEZ always call and ask for money and yesterday he ask again Php27,000.00 for tax.
    My friend asked me for help. I advice her not to gave anymore money because I think it is a scam.

    This afternoon, ATTY. LOPEZ called my friend and the Php27,000 is already available. When my friend started to ask the details of this award and ask any supporting documents. He argued with my friend and said that the cash prize is ready and can be claim through LBC Kwarta Padala just to convince my friend to give the Php27,000. He even mention the LBC Branch in Makati.
    But my friend don’t have money to gave him, he persuaded my friend to borrow money from other people but my friend ask for any document and that he was not able to provide.
    He hang-up the call when he noticed that my friend already asked so many questions.

    Miguel G. Lopez is not in the list of registered lawyers in the Philippines when we searched in the internet.

    I just want to report this TEXT SCAM to you so that you can find ways to address this. Also if you can investigate this JAMA A. PLAMA since my friend already gave Php30,000 cash to this person.
    Also, if you can still contact and also investigate the number of ATTY. LOPEZ. Can you also ask the Globe Telecom on what will they do to stop this, since the person is using a TM number? Also please ask the NBI to investigate this. Coz, TEXT SCAM already rampant.

    I know that my friend will not receive any cash prize and will not anymore recover the Php30,000. But as a concern citizen, I don’t want this to happen to other people. That’s why I am sending this information to you to help solve and end this kind of scam.

    Please don’t publish my email address & my name to keep my privacy.

    THANK YOU AND GOD BLESS THE PHILIPPINES

  2. Ang totoo, di mo na dapat ito inilagay pa kasi hindi naman kami NAPAKATANGA AT BOBO gaya ng friend mo. LUMANG RAKET NA ITO AT MATAGAL NA. Di ko maintindihan kung bakit naloko at nagpaloko pa yung kaibigan mo. Siguro pag dumulog sya sa NBI at Globe baka pagtawanan lang sya run. Marami na akong natanggap na ganitong text messages, pero hindi ko pinapansin dahil alam kong scam. Simple lang, una wala naman akong sinalihang kahit anong contest para manalo ako ng ganung kalaking halaga. Pangalawa, sinong BOBO at TANGA ang magbibigay kaagad ng ganung kalaking halaga ng walang kahirap-hirap.

    Eto pa, baka maluko na naman ang friend mo o ikaw, merong mga nagpapadala ng EMAIL MESSAGES SCAM sa mismong email addresses ng prospects nila na mga foreigner. Karaniwan, NIGERIAN NATIONALS. Malaking sindikato ito na lumilibot sa buong mundo. Simple lang laman ng email messages–nanalo ka sa isang raffle contest o may isang Bank Manager o Government Official na nakaiwan ng isang milyun-milyong halaga, dolyar pa nga. Kukumbisihin ka na kontakin sila kagad para mailipat sa iyo ang pera, sobrang kapani-paniwala ito dahil kumpleto sila lahat ng dokumento. Aalamin nila lahat ng Bank Account mo kahit Credit Card account. Pag binigay mo, UBOS KA!! Dahil mahuhusay na computer hackers ito, kaya nilang ubusin lahat ng pera mo sa banko sa isang saglit lang o magkautang ka ng napakalaki sa credit card.

    Laganap na ito sa buong mundo. Ganito lang naman ang rules para di ka maluko sa ganitong sitwasyon. Wag kang GAHAMAN at maghangad ng malaking halaga. Kapag ang isang transaksyon ay humihingi na ng kapalit na halaga, lukuhan na yon. Walang matinong contest na mananalo ka at ikaw pa ang hihingan ng pera.

    Isang tip, para hindi ka mapeste ng ganitong mga EMAIL SCAMS. Gumawa ka ng 2 o 3 account sa email sites. Ihiwalay mo ang ginagamit mo na pampersonal at pangbusiness. Anumang mangyari, wag mong gagamitin ang email address na ginagamit mo sa pangbusiness para sumagot sa mga forums mag-download ng pictures kung saan humihingi ng email configuration. Kahit gamiting username sa FB o Twitter, wag. Isa pa gumawa ka ng hanggang 5 password variants para sa mga account mo sa internet. Iba sa FB, iba sa Twitter, iba sa personal email mo, iba rin sa business email. Dahil pag isa lang, kaya nilang pasukin ang email address mo at malaman ang bank account o credit card account mo.

  3. Isa pa pala, WALANG MANLOLOKO NA GINAMIT YUNG TOTOONG PANGALAN NYA. Kaya wag ka nang mag-aksaya ng panahon na paimbestigahan pa ang pangalan na binigay nya. Kahit ang cellphone number na ginamit nya kadaling palitan, mura lang yung SIM card.

    Ang mga SCAM na ito walang katapusan. Marami talagang mapagsamantala sa kapwa. Pero sabi nga dalawa lang naman ang klase ng tao sa ganitong sitwasyon, isang MANLOLOKO at isang NAGPAPALOKO. Pag naghangad ka talaga ng malaking halaga, mas malaki mawawala sa yo. Anumang halaga na makukuha sa isang madaling paraan, siguradong lukohan yon. At anumang sitwasyon na humihingi ng napakalaking halaga bilang kapalit, lukohan rin yon.

  4. My dad immediately contacted this ATTY. CARLO V. DIAZ. He’s 71 y/o and isn’t knowledgeable of cellphone scams. He has given personal information to the fake lawyer such as name, age, address and his account #. When he was told about the service bank charge which is 1 percent of his 650,000 prize he was willing to deduct it from the prize but the person said they cannot lessen the prize money. My dad dropped the call upon knowing he has to pay 6,500 before he gets the prize. Now, I have to call his bank branch to inform them about the incident and if we have to close the account and change it.
