    About Spam/Scam text.

    i_nash

      Bakit ganon habang nagrereport ako sa Globe ng scam mas nagiging madalas ang text sa akin ng mga scammer. My mga receive ko message di ko na nirereport sa Globe dahil parang useless din ang mag report. Paano ba nila nakukuha ang data ng mga postpaid subscriber? Bakit sa prepaid walang ko nakukuhang scam text. Mas safe pa ata gumamit ng prepaid kesa sa postpaid. Ultimo mga agent ng condo at kung anu anong loans na scam naman nagtext sa number ko. Nakakapagtaka lang eh. Gusto ko na ata remove ang data ko sa site ng globe. Di ata safe un site niyo.

          Postpaid numbers have a given series and there is a greater probability that these are active as Globe recycles these numbers 6 months after the subscriber terminates their subscription.

           

          They are usually targeted as postpaid subscribers are supposed to have qualified as income generators and are perceived to have sufficient capability to purchase goods and services.

           

          Spam/scam utilize prepaid numbers so even if they are blocked, all one has to do is purchase another prepaid number. There is no way you can stop them right now unless it would be mandatory to have a prepaid sim card registration which many oppose as a an invasion of privacy.

              Dapat nga every purchase ng prepaid sim nakaregister din. Sa Australia kasi pag nagprepaid ka nakaregister din at di ka pwede basta basta magpalit ng sim. Kaya ang dami gumagawa ng scam dito sa pinas dahil sa walang control pag dating sa prepaid.

                    Tama, it is time to regulate selling of prepaid sim cards in order to eliminate this annoying scam and text message about getting a condo. Kahit may emergency ka na di mo pinapansin yung text messages kasi na babadtrip ka na dahil puro spam messages na rereceive mo.

                        If we just implement our existing laws then  ownership of sim cards may be traceable even without a new law on sim card registration...

                         

                        BIR regulations mandate that an official Receipt or Sales Invoice be issued for purchases Php 30.00 and above. We all know that these sims cost that much but seldom do merchants fill out who they sold it to and their addresses and one of the reasons also why spammers are around.
