Pacquiao Show Text Message

  • Share via E-mail

How the scam works:

Multiple world champion boxer Manny Pacquiao, has a TV game show called “Manny, many prizes”. The show is very popular and scammers didn’t waste a second in trying to get a slice of its success.

Due to the object of the game – giving away prizes – it was reported that criminals send mass text messages, telling the recipients that they won certain prizes. “Your cell phone number was drawn via electronic raffle and you have won P780,000 from our game show ‘Manny, many prizes’”.

You are required to call a phone number to redeem your prize. If you do that, the “operator” will ask you for your personal information “to confirm your identity” and then for your bank account details, so they deposit the money to you.

How to avoid:

Manny Pacquiao and his team have denied any cash giveaways through text messaging, so don’t fall for it.

    Sir Manny Pacquiao.

    Just this morning, I received a text message from this number: +63 905 581 9000. The message says,

    "Congratulations! We would like to inform U that Ur GLOBE Int'l Roaming # Had Won 2-Million Pesos. During our Thanks Giving Raffles draw! From: MANNY PACQUIAO FOUNDATION OFFICE. To Claim ur Prize Call. KUYA BOBBY PACQUIAO, Contact# 09055819000 PER DTI PERMIT#0797 Series of 2014."

    I did not call them because of several text scam similar to this. But of course I would like to double check this with your office too if this is a legitimate info or another scam. Hoping for your immediate feedback.
