Text Scams

Text Scams

Text scams can be ridiculously stupid.

I still receive text scams from time to time asking for prepaid load and telling me I won some promo. Lately, the quality of the text scam messages have significantly degraded.  Take the one below for example from 09067538164 :

Congrats! Ur SIM # had won! Php.950,000.00 “hndog pngkabuhayan ni”Pres.BENIGNO ‘noy,noy AQUINO”To claim ur prize.Pls.Call me now.I’m Ms.LEAH LOPEZ, (Auditor of Phils.Charity Foundation)DTI-#01401.s10

This is just one of the thousands (and thousands) of text scams being sent everyday. Plain stupidity. With that type of scam, who would take bait? Here are the reasons that makes it an ineffective spiel:

  • I won PHP 950,000.00 and you inform me through text? I say take a thousand off my winnings, buy PHP 1,000.00 worth of load; call me!
  • “hndg pngkabuhayan ni”Pres.BENIGNO’noy,noy AQUINO” : We have a Jejemon scammer now?
  • “Ms.LEAH LOPEZ”: The names sounds too perfect, girl. If you’re going to use aliases, make it sound more Pilipino. Use common first names like: “Julie Ann,” “Mary Ann,” and “Charlene Mae” or authentic-sounding first names like “Hilda,” “Susan” and “Rose Marie.”
  • Phils.Charity Foundation: The name is too general. It’s from our **** president and you use “Foundation.” I doubt if Mr. President could even come up with a “foundation” other than “Mommy and Daddy Foundation.” Next time, use appealing names like, “Philippine Charity Sweepstakes Agency” (PCSA) You get to use the first 3 words of the name and they won’t even know the difference from the real PCSO (Philippine Charity Sweepstake Office).
  • Lastly, don’t you know how easy it is to verify DTI Sales Promo Permit Numbers. Click here.

Reminders to avoid Text Scam:

  • If you haven’t joined any promo, there’s no way you’ll win big prizes.
  • A winner usually receives a written notice (through letter or telegram) from the provider, not through a simple Jejemon text message.
  • Do not provide private information like Bank Account information, Credit Card Number and Billing Address even if they say it’s for “verification” purposes only.
  • Do not deposit money or send prepaid load if they say it will be used to pay for the “tax” of you winnings.

    Het olja bör sättas i sitt sammanhang. Het olja är enligt dom muslimska lagarna till för att hällas över otrogna kristna och judar som är uppstudsiga. Kokande olja är betydligt hetare än vanligt simpelt kokande vatten.Muslimer är inga mesar. Var cool och stek dina fiender om du vill vara lika cool som en muslimsk kämpe.

    The very heart of your writing while sounding agreeable originally, did not really work perfectly with me after some time. Someplace within the sentences you actually were able to make me a believer unfortunately just for a short while. I still have got a problem with your jumps in logic and you would do well to fill in those breaks. If you can accomplish that, I could surely end up being fascinated.

    You are right, this is not the point of this post. Open source vs. proprietary is a whole different discussion.While trackers are meant to be shared, sometimes , you need a way of keeping track of stuff for yourself only. A bug tracker in such a case is overkill.Most of email I receive is actionable so it helps me to keep track of what has been done and what is to be done without having to leave all the email as Unread (which a lot of people do)

    Thank you Ian for the links. I read your blog post in February already, and I think your framework and the four attitudes towards creative consumers (discourage, resist, encourage & enable) make a lot of sense.

    Ah, e pelo que eu pude perceber no jogo Grêmio x Cruzeiro, embora o estrelado esteja realmente muito abaixo do que já foi, não é tão ruim a ponto de merecer a degola. Mas merecimento nem sempre é o critério.Eu sei que não é uma notícia esportiva, mas caberia um relato sobre o efeito do CRACK NA TESTA sobre as pessoas – nesse caso do incêndio aos alojamentos da construção da arena do Grêmio…

    Who cares, 401k, SS and RE appreciation are pipe dreams anyhow. We all have to work till we die and the cash we have liquid is the only real money we have anyhow. Plus think about it you can only put 15.5K in a 401k a year and once you buy your house that is it. In your late 40′s and 50′s your should be puting away like 40K a year in your taxable accounts to retire, that is the nut you got to watch.

    I think you missed something. The police were there to help the muslims restrain them selves! They already admitted that if a muslim man sees the flesh of a woman he can NOT be responsible for the loss of control as he rapes her. Therefore, logically, they want to police to lock them in the building so that they can not get out and commit rape until after the protests. I just feel sorry for any sheep left in the mosques.

    * Sigh* You’re right. I don’t hate Lucas (I’m saying that now). I actually like him. It’s just that this is like one of those stories that I hate. There’s 2 boys who love the same girl. The girl can’t decide so she becomes a slutty thing. But at the end she chooses tall dark and handsome. It’s never the sweet kind boy. Thanks for being honest Brittany.
