Okay… I have been receiving this series of texts for about a week now. I thought it was going to stop if I just ignored it but this freak keeps texting me day after day after day! Talk about dedication. I still have not caved. Believe me, I’ve been tempted to reply with just about every bad word I can think of (sorry but f— off comes to mind) but I still haven’t because I know that any form of response from me will just encourage her to text me more. *sigh*
Okay, so I took a screenshot of her July 26 text to me. She actually started before this date but I thought it was just a one-time thing so I paid no heed. On July 27, she texted me the exact same message again!
This person then proceeds to text a biodata. Like I care… all lies, I know. I’ve been on the receiving end of too many crank texts to be so gullible as to believe a single word. What do you know, she even leaves a url.
Following the url will lead you to her supposed site where she again repeats her entire sob story. I’m pretty sure Sam Mendoza is a fictitious person and the scammer used some poor random unsuspecting young woman’s graduation photo on the site.
For goodness sakes, despite my non-response, this person will not stop texting me! Fail lang ang paawa effect because I don’t feel any pity at all. I just feel more and more pissed off each and every day that she texts me! If I could have her arrested for harassment I would have done so already.
If ever you find yourself on the receiving end of these texts please do not be fooled by the entire sob story. This is an old scam text that has been circulating for years. Google it to see what I mean. Many have blogged about it too. Some have tried calling the number used to text but the calls are never answered. Some text back and well, they just get more lies about this girl’s supposed desperation to come to Manila — more pleas for money to finance her trip.
I am taking the time to blog about this because I personally know people who have lost money to text scammers like this one. I’ve actually blogged about other kinds of text scams in the past.
