Thursday, March 25, 2004TEXT SCAM
I got a text message this morning from this mobile number:09182635636
"Congrats! Your sim number won P850,000.00 last March 24/04. For details, call me now! I'm Ismael R. Apostol (GMACFI) SPD Info Officer. Ground floor, Central Bank, Manila."
I didn't reply. I was 90% sure this was a scam but I called Central Bank, just to be sure.
True enough, no one by the name of Ismael Apostol worked there and apparently, a lot of people have been looking for him. The woman I spoke to asked me if I recieved a text message telling me that I had won something. When i said, "yes", she informed me that this was indeed, a scam.
So everyone, beware.
I also just found out that my officemate's husband got a similar text message and these frauds ask for your savings account number giving you the reason that they'll deposit your winnings there. Yeah, right.
