The telecommunications companies in the Philippines have been reminded by the National Telecommunications Commission (NTC) to warn the masses with regard to fake job text scams.
NTC reminded that the cooperation of telcos is needed to strengthen the agency’s information drive against the spread of text scams. Globe, Smart and DITO have been mandated to submit their compliance report by June 8, 2022.
All the NTC Regional Directors as well as the Officers-in-Charge issued statements through local radio and television stations to warn the public against the issue. These officials were also required to submit their compliance report to the Office of the Commissioner not later than June 15, 2022.
The NTC is reminding Filipinos to become vigilant regarding these scam messages, and to never give out personal information to people they don’t know. The public is also urged not to click dubious links and answer surveys from unknown numbers.
