"Congratulations you win P450,000 (around $9,000) and a brand new laptop in our raffle draw." Said the text. Say what...I win big bucks of money. That is very alluring and seductive and tempting text for you to read. Then again, think think and think. Where did I participated raffle? Nothing. And hiw the hell I win? Its a scam. So, we tried to ride the scammer as if we're interested. We texted back. As expected a man called us and with his convincing voice asking us how he should send the money. The move is as expected THAT WE SHOULD SEND AN AMOUNT OF MONEY FOR PROCESSING. "You are scammer?" We asked. And the was cut off!

sometimes we need to ride them so that we can also play them, its only them playing us. These people are just to smart to convince people and how sad there are many people they can victimized. The harder part is that they are hard to identify.

I think this is the best thing to do, send their numbers to National Telecommunications agency and other agencies that can arrest them. Too bad they are one of the hardest to identify.

well, I supposed you also ride with their modus operandi, sometimes we need to bad trip them so that they will feel how their victims feel. They're good in preying people, how I wish we can prey them also.

I've received these types of text and I'm surprised that people still do it and people still fall for it. Sometimes, I'm tempted to send a profanity-laden text but then I change my mind and just ignore the text altogether.

yeah, sometimes we are tempted to send them bad words but then again, what else that we can get from them, we are just stress, so the better idea to do is just ignore them.

In the past it was common to receive it. However, such kind of scams are so outdated and probably nobody will be cheated any more
