    Inside job ba ito?

    djpat16

      So nadeliver sakin yung SIM ko nung Saturday, nung Sunday nag activate. Tapos kahapon, Monday, may naresib agad akong text na ganito:

       

      Globe:You're one of the lucky postpaid subcribers to receive a P500 bill discount. To claim, just text: 500 and send to 29157832903 or 29157891502

       

      Ano to sideline ng mga agents?

          Wag mo na lang masyadong pinagpapapansin yang mga spammer at scammer na yan. Basta kapag may nagtext sayo na hindi mo kilala ignore mo na lang.

           

          Pwede mo ring silang ireport sa twitter. I-tweet mo lang si @talk2GLOBE kasama ang screenshot ng text.

            Hello, Fellow Wonderful Creatures!

             

            Inside Job? 

             

            You are just one of the unlucky creatures.  You may consider it as an inside job if the message has your complete name in the message:

             

            Network : Hello there, Poncious Pilate! You're one of the lucky postpaid subcribers to receive a P500 bill discount. To claim, just text: 500 and send to ...

             

            These creatures are subscribed to UnliText Plan/Promo. They can use any number possible in their Inside Job

                Hi there,

                 

                I just thought that way because I just got my sim. And I only texted a few people informing my new number. I am aware of some numbers texting offering loans or real state in most of the postpaid subscribers. But this?! How the hell she/he knows that I'm a postpaid subscriber?!


                And the text message obviously instructing me to share a load to another number. I am not new to spam messages but what's cracking my butt out is that I just got this SIM and I never encountered this kind of spam message when I was a prepaid subscriber.

                if the sms is coming from 4 digit numbers (4438 , 8888, 2910) well, maybe. but if not, and it is coming from 11digit mobile number, that is probably SPAM. you can report that over the Hotline. 211 or (02) 730-1000 open 24hrs.

                  Bili ka ng prepaid sim tapos bawian mo, text mo din ng same message tapos palitan mo yung number nung prepaid number mo.

                      Thanks to all of your responses. I'm just wondering if there are any of you guys out there received the same kind of spam message. Will be reporting this soon. Paano nalang yung ibang mga wala masyadong alam, malaking halaga din yung 500.

                          Iyour always weLcome djpat16: I've heard about that issue before from my friend, and sad to say' most of them follow the syntax that was sent to them, hmm .. yeah your right that's why, in that case the only way is to report it to NTC, or block that no. using your monile or download some apps to block unexpected no.s.

                            marami pang katulad nyan na mga messages.  just ignore them, report to globe's twitter and delete messages from your phone.

                             

                            when you received your SIM e hindi naman yan malalaman ng delivery guy yung number mo as far as my experience is concerned.  unless the SIM card is prepaid, postpaid SIMs don't have numbers printed on the card or anywhere else.  You even have to call another number to know your own number when activated.

                              Hello, Fellow Wonderful Creatures!

                               

                              Thank you for that wonderful question.

                               

                              I think I received this kind of message years ago. But the New Roaming message is a classic example of how some creatures will try to fool other creatures.

                              I think may thread na dati na ginawa for scam messages hindi ko lang sya makita sa ngayon.

                               

                              Meron din ako nareceive na ganyang message, nagkukunwari na tinetext nya is mama nya.

                               

                              Sinagot ko na patay na ang mama nya at ako na bagong may ari nung number, hindi na sumagot ulit
