Manny Pacquiao and GMA-7 Warns Public about Text Scam

 

If you suddenly receive a text message telling you that your cell phone number was drawn via electronic raffle and that you won P780,000 from Manny Pacquiao’s new game show, ‘Manny, many prizes’ or that you have been awarded the second prize at a raffle draw conducted by the ‘GMA Kapuso Foundation’, what do you do?

Text the sender back and say, “May God forgive you for deceiving people with your lies.”

Seriously, report the incident and the number to the National Telecommunications Commission and have them bar the number from sending these text scams.

Manny Pacquiao and Mel Tiangco of GMA7’s Kapuso Foundation have denied any involvement or knowledge as to where these texts scams are originating.

Pacquaio said his Manny Pacquiao Foundation and his new game show are not giving away money by sending people these types of text messages, while Tiangco laughingly said their Kapuso Foundation is eliciting donations for the less privileged and is not giving away money through raffle draws and such as claimed by the text scams sender.

So people, take note so you don’t get fooled.

    There are tons of text scams out there. Interesting is that Apple just released an iPhone app a few days ago, called Scam Detector, which exposes in detail over 350 of the most notorious scams in the world. Lots of telephone scams as well. It is worth checking it out, if you have an iPhone. There is their info: http://www.scam-detector.com. It’s kinda cool, actually.
