SMS Scams

Among the various kinds of SPAM that I receive through SMS, I received this jewel recently. It was a scam, asking me to credit RM30 into someone’s mobile phone account. Slick. Thankfully, it’s obvious that my dad did not send me this SMS and he was not in trouble with the police. The source of the SMS is +6285237184056 (an Indonesian number).

Ini ayah Tlong bagi credit mexis 30RM ke nombor baru ayah 0128650385 Ayah lgi ada msalah kat balai Police.ta payah caal sekejap ayah call.

Scammers – they should at least work on spelling and grammar.
