Viral: Here’s how to ‘scam’ a scammer

By: - 05/21/2019

USONG-uso pa rin talaga ang mga scam text messages na sinasabi at nagpapaasa na may napanalunan kang pera kahit wala ka namang sinasalihang game o pa-raffle.

Madalas hindi na natin ito pinapansin dahil alam nga natin scam nga.

Pero ibang klase itong Twitter user na si @ariesleguin_el kung saan ini-scam niya (pardon the word) ang gustong mag-scam sa kanya.

And there, his tweet gathered huge retweets and likes.

Nakatanggap kasi siya ng mensahe sa isang number na sinasabing ang kanyang number ay nanalo ng P650,000 worth of cash. The usual standard messages in text scams.

What was different here was how he replied.

“Maraming salamat sa pagsubscribe mo sa Daily Onanay Facts ka-TM! Mababawasan ka ng P25 regular load araw-araw.” he texted back.

Nataranta ang scammer, sa akalang mababawasan nga siya ng load! Napa-stop siya dahil dito.

Umabot na sa 37,000 likes at 6,973 retweets ang nakakagood-vibes tweet na ito.
