8 BEST RESPONSES TO THOSE
PASALOAD SCAM TEXTS
Scam texts have probably been around since the dawn of texting, affecting every phone ever held by a Filipino. Scammers resort to every kind of modus to execute their plan: pretending to be OFWs who badly need load or even loved ones who have gotten into accidents who miraculously retain the ability to text despite said accident. Whatever their modus may be, all they want is some free load out of innocent people.
That said, pasaload scams are easy to detect. Sadly, some people do fall for them, so no matter how convincing the text is, if it’s asking your for load or gives out a cellphone number with the number 2 in front of it, never ever give in. Warn your loved ones–especially those who aren’t as tech-savvy. If you have any doubts, a quick call will clear things up.
The still-rampant existence of these scams is a sign that people are still getting victimized despite the government’s efforts to stop them. If the government can’t handle them, maybe some quick-witted texters can turn the situation around. Here are 8 hilarious moments when pasaload scammers became the victims.
8. Love over load
Love is the most important thing.
7. Lintik kang bata ka!
“Akin na sinturon ko! Tuwad! Sabi ng tuwad eh!”
The code still can’t be found by the scammer as of press time.
5. Beware of the nail cutter
Nothing better than a very, very slow murder.
