“Just don’t reply to these texts.”
This was the foremost measure proposed by the National Telecommunications Commission (NTC) in Bohol amid the tide of text message scams spread by tricksters preying on mobile users.
“If you reply to these texts, they will find a way to get money from you,” said NTC Bohol officer-in-charge Engr. Dennis Rocamora.
In an interview with dyRD Action Line’s Fred Araneta, Rocamora bared that text scams are mostly sent through regular cellular phone numbers.
“If only a phone number appears, that’s definitely a scam,” Rocamora said. “If you receive messages from providers and it would appear that it was sent from Globe or Smart, that’s not a scam.”
Swindling messages include raffle prizes while other mobile con artists guise themselves as relatives asking for money or cellphone load credits.
Several Cebu residents have fallen prey to these scams, said Rocamora.
“One victim sent money, but after that we couldn’t trace it anymore,” he added.
In most cases, after having swindled money out of victims, suspects immediately dispose of their SIM card and replace it with a new one.
“SIM cards nowadays are very cheap. You can buy at BQ for P10 to P15,” Rocamora said.
According to the NTC official, Sen. Panfilo Lacson previously moved to have pre-paid SIM cards registered but this was opposed by telecommunication companies.

what's so wrong with sim cards registration? most of the countries that i've been to have their sim cards registered, and they're not any less for that! ::)
Republic Act 8485 (Animal Welfare Act of 1998, Philippines), as amended and strengthened by House  Bill 6893 of 2013--- violation means a maximum of P250,000 fine with a corresponding three-year jail term and a minimum of P30,000 fine and six months imprisonment
