Beware! New Text Scam Targets Mothers

Beware! New Text Scam Targets Mothers

 

The creative industry in the Philippines is improving by leaps and bounds. Proof? Thieves and con artists are becoming more creative in ways they can get money from you. One of the most popular modus is through text, where they will trick you into sending load to a balikbayan relative, or to switch your phone off for service maintenance (and then proceed to contact your parent to ask for ransom money), or that you have won an imaginary contest. Indeed, if you’re not careful, you can be fooled by these text messages.

There is a new text scam that’s targeting mothers. In the new modus, the con artist will send a message to a mother, pretending to be their child. They will say that they are texting from a doctor’s cellphone, and that they are in an accident. The “doctor” will then reply, saying that the child is in the operating room.

Below is a screencap of a conversation that happened between the con artist and the victim. The post is now spreading on social media:

Whoever you are, stop victimizing innocent mothers who love and care for their children! Remember, karma knows where you live!

You don’t know the stress you gave my mom! You have no shame! It’s not my fault if your parents raised you like that. You can fool yourself but don’t fool other people!

You had the nerve to harass the friends and relatives of my mom, who made sure I was safe!

It’s craziness to say that I’m in critical condition because of an accident, and that he needed cellphone load to call the blood bank?

I am vigilant as f*ck against people like this, and I’ll let karma knock your life into the deepest sh*t of hell! And I’d be damned, that’s for sure! Nonetheless, f*ck you, Dr. Mendoza!

Please share this to people you know, especially mothers that are quite susceptible to these kinds of scams since it involves the welfare of their children.
