I have grown tired of receiving spam text messages and emails about purportedly winnings from online lotto or inheritances or raffle draws. I probably receive a minimum of 5 such letters on a daily basis. I really do not mind emails such as best testosterone boosters for after all these are just email ads that boast of products that I don't have to "buy".

I know a couple who was sucked-in big time to one of these text messaging scams. The husband received a text message informing him that he won 700,000 PHP from PAGCOR, a gaming institute here in the Philippines. He was asked to produce 60,000 PHP to facilitate the release of the winnings. He was able to deposit 30,000 PHP before he told me and a group of friends about it. We told him not to produce the other half as the winning is scam. He and his wife did not believe us. To date, they still owe some people who lent them part of the 60 K they lost in this scam.
