Brussels-Based OFW, Victim of Text Scam

It is sad to know that a fellow Filipino overseas worker based in Brussels, Belgium was duped of more than P90,000 by a syndicate allegedly engaged in text scam.
The victims name is Petronila Baal. He could not believe that she was victimized by a syndicate who used the names of some high-ranking Philippine officials. The suspects even used the name of our President Gloria Macapagal Arroyo to carry out their illegal activity.
The text message she received read: "Congratulations! Your SIM number won cash prize from PCMC thru CPV electronic raffle. Call me up now for the mechanics to claim ur prize, I'm Ed Robles."
After receiving the message, Baal said she immediately contacted the suspect to ask him how she can claim her prize. After that, Baal sent money four times to the suspect through Western Union.
Meanwhile, the Philippine embassy in Brussels denied that government officials are involved in the scam. You may read the whole story in "abs-cbn news online".
