Text Scam warning... be aware "Handog Pangkabuhayan"

The Philippine National Police Directorate for Investigation and Detection Management (PNP-DIDM) has warned the Filipino public of a text messaging scam currently making the rounds.

Mobile users who receive an SMS asking them to join the “Handog Pangkabuhayan” (”Gift of Livelihood”) promo are advised to ignore it, as it comes from a syndicate seeking to con unsuspecting people out of their money. The text message asks recipients to text or call a particular number to join the “promo.” Those who do so are asked to continue texting or calling several times to remain “qualified” for the “contest.”
