Beware of "Pahingi ng Load" Text Scam

Have you ever received an sms message like this?
Ma nabangga ung sinasakyan nmin naki txt lang ako last txt ko n2 paloadan mo muna 2ng # n2 09183718853 ng 300 smart yan emergency lang may sugat ako sa ulo

The text came from this number 09322763983. THIS IS A SCAM!!! If you receive such text, try to get in touch with your loved ones some other way before giving any load. My friend was victimized this way when she thought it was her office mate asking for load. She was surprised when she found out that her friend was okay and that it was not her number. If you think that the message indeed came from your child, then at least, load a minimal amount like P10 then confirm if they are indeed your family.
