Radio campaign vs text scams launched

The National Telecommunications Commission recently launched a radio campaign to complement its current “Kontra Text Scam” efforts informing the public to disregard text scams and properly report these to the Commission.

The nationwide radio effort is being implemented in cooperation with the Kapisanan ng mga Brodkaster ng Pilipinas.

The 15-seconder radio material reads “Text Scam messages na panloloko at paglilinlang! Wag pansinin! Wag i-click ang link! Magsumbong sa NTC sa o di kaya’y mag e-mail sa Tulong-tulong laban sa text scam!”

Reporting text scams to the NTC may be done in two ways — Submit the following information by e-mail at
a. Your complete name, address, email and contact number;
b. The complained cell phone number;
c. A screenshot of the text scam message with the sender’s mobile number ; and
d. A scanned copy of any government-related ID issued to you.

And the last one is to upload at the NTC’s website by doing the following:
a. Click on the Text Scam Complaints button found in the main page;
b. Fill out the details in the Text Scam Complaints Form; and
c. Click the SUBMIT button.

For any additional queries, call the NTC’s Consumer Hotline numbers: +632 8920 4464, +632 8926 7722 and +632 8921 3251. Calls made to the NTC Consumer Hotline numbers will be entertained from 8:00AM to 5:00PM, Monday to Friday.

The NTC acknowledged the KBP’s desire to help fight the proliferation of text scams by entering a partnership with the Commission on the airing of the radio material.

The NTC and the KBP’s effort is based on President Ferdinand Marcos, Jr.’s call for unity among different sectors of the country to work together for the welfare of the Filipino people.
