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. Always do your research when it comes to prizes or easy making money. If you are really looking for a job and seek to make some money online until you hit the jackpot, use trustworthy companies such as GlobalTestMarket which offers you money for legitimate surveys online.

JUST TXT NAM,E/AGE/ADRESS/WORK- FOR MORE INFO CALL ME NOW I'M SEC: MARK REYES DTI - # 9718 S.2015......... ngaun July 27, 2015 ay tumawag siya sa akin at pinapipili ako f personally i will claim my prize or ipadala nas lng nila through Cebuana.. If ipadala ay kailangan ko mag pay ng on line processing fee na 4,850.00. nang hindi ako magpadala ay sinabi niya na tatawagan niya ang may-ari ng cebuana to make resolution, after several minutes he called me saying na bumaba na lang sa 1,400.00 ang processing fee. I told him I don't have money so I will personally pick up my prize, i ask him the address but iba ang address na bigay niya sa makati or malate, so i texted him. Why that address samantalang nasa QC ang GMA Foundation... Sabi niya pwede ko daw ihabla si Cong. Manny if I don't claim my prize or if bawasan ANG PRIZE KO.... ANG DAMI TALAGA MANLOLOKO!
