DTI-Abra warns public against text scam

DTI Abra

BY: MARIA TERESA B. BENAS

BANGUED, Abra, June 23(PIA) – – “Don’t be a victim of text scam!” The Department of Trade and Industry warns the general public from text messages they receive from unknown sources informing them of their alleged winnings of big amounts in cash or in kind.

“Do not believe in text messages that you receive from ordinary cellphone numbers and never give out any amount in cash or in kind to anyone or to any bank account that your texter is demanding from you.” DTI-Abra Provincial Director Arell Banez emphasized.

Another mode of deception using text messages is by introducing themselves as relative from abroad. In the outset, they would simply ask you about your current condition, and later on, would ask you to send them a load. Beware of this modus operandi and do not allow yourselves to be taken advantage of, Banez said.

The moment you receive such kind of text messages from suspicious sources, immediately visit or call the DTI and inquire if such is legitimate or not, advised Banez.

On the other hand, those whose vehicles and electrical appliances and electronic gadgets need repair are advised to go repair only to DTI-accredited establishments to ensure that they have adequate and appropriate tools needed in the repair of said properties. Only qualified mechanics and servicemen have fire insurance, the DTI informed. (JDP/MTBB – PIA CAR, Abra)

  1. Ket scam ti abreco saan da nga kaya nga inbestigaran? Jay capital share nga nabayag mi nga naiteden aginga ita awan pay t damagen no naiyinbes dan wenno naibulsa dan…..if my calculator serves me right, roughly 45 million pesos was been collected by all its member consumers! Isu met lang gayam nga saan ka nga agpaayab t general assemblin ta bareng malipatan min ta minilmilyon nga nacolecta yon ti member consumersen….to jun and siblings, ag iinuna kay met nga agbalay kada aggatang t properties yon yords lalo la unay ken vice mayoren…..SIGE BULSA TA BULSA

  2. mga lokdit taga DTI what a shameful undertaking for a branch of government that mandate is to see that commerce industry in abra will be protected from unfair competion and the consumers right must be protected by the agency, look at sinalang activities they intimidating people to pay 2,500
    when we passed by with my old model suv with two boxes of carton fulled with my referrence books and clothing. the guys manning the chkpoint near the police chkpoint asked me to pay for 2,500 but i asked them why two men approached me from behind with a fire arm tucked on their waist so i ran away and asked the assistance from the chkpoint of the pnp but they told me that the operation is legal and with basis. DTI or the Capitol should look into this matter, if the COP pandak will investigate i will reveal myself for the interest of everybody,

  4. No Ania t imulam isut apitimm; nangimulaka t LOKDIT, inapitmo ania. As I mentioned learn to forgive and you’ll be forgiven. If possible pray n blessed those who treated you bad and God will surely bless you also. Hatred is not also good to your health. Learn from the wisdom and humility of sir ALFREDOVALERA so you’ll have also a long happy productive life.
    God said ” blessed are the meek for they shall inherit the earth”

  7. Daytoy koma natan-ok nga aramid ti maysa a nanumo ngem mad ayaw nga trycycle driver mr. Ernesto Rante ti iyaramidan ni miss Benas ti write up. Kaniak la nga maysa, ad-adda nga maraem daytoy panangisubli ti saan na kukua ngem ti projects nga loan ta sigurado adda porsiento daytoy. Ninayunan koma met ni mayor ti cash diay Certicate ken saan koma laeng nga trycycle driver ti agaramid daytoy no diket amin nga tao, mamgnangruna ni politico. Nagganas ngatan nga maamuan no maisubli dagiti nacorakot nga agpaay kadatayo nga napanglaw uray kagudua la koma ti ginamrodda.
    Daytoy kabsat nga balikbayan, Mano met ngata ti intedna nga gunguna kas panagyaman na ken Ernesto ken ti Apo Dios ti kinasayaat ti panagpuspusona. Sika koma mr Ernesto Rante ti agmayor ti Bangued ket sigurado nga agbalin nga kalatakan ti Bangued nga ili ti Pilipinas wenno intero nga lubong. May Our loving God bless you n your family and may your breed increase. May your example be a kind of lasting wake up call to all especially the so called MADAYDAYAW NGA POLITICO.
