According to the SEC, if any person or persons approached or contacted you via email, phone, or any other means and offered you a ridiculously high return on your “investment” after a short period of time, protect yourself by asking for the following information first.

  1. Name of the person and the company making the offer;
  2. Address of the person and the company;
  3. Landline numbers of the person and the company (mobile phone numbers are difficult to trace); and
  4. SEC registration of the company stating they are eligible to take investments

If the person refused to give those information, better not to continue dealing with them. There’s a high chance the company and the investment program are a fraud.

Some additional things to remember:

  • Investment houses and financing companies with quasi-banking (QB) license and with SEC registered securities are the only ones allowed to offer investment instruments to more than 19 investors;
  • Only SEC registered persons (brokers/dealers/salesmen) may offer or sell registered securities to the public;
  • SEC company registration in itself DOES NOT automatically grant authority to sell investment instruments such as securities, bonds, commercial papers, etc. Here is a list of companies authorized by the SEC to accept investments from the public;
  • Don’t fall for people who give you promissory notes or post-dated checks as proof of your interest earnings. Those might be fake or contain insufficient funds. Scammers use this trick to show that they are supposedly genuine and paying.

If you encountered these people, report them to the:

SEC – Compliance Monitoring and Enforcement Department (SEC-CED) at Phone No. (632)724-7650 or (632)727-2267 or the National Bureau of Investigation or the local police

    Hello good morning. I hope that this message will not be taken for granted. I just want to report a scam and I too was a victim. There’s a Michelle “michee” Cruz in facebook who is offering a very very low downpayment with installment terms for Apple products. (You can check her facebook account).
    I sent her a payment of P4500 yesterday December 16,2014 and never heard anything from her upon providing her the tracking number from cebuana lhuillier. She claimed my payment at Cebuana Lhuillier olivarez tagaytay cavite branch, and I think dito din nya kinukuha paymnets ng mga biktima nya ever since she started her scam.
    I was really bothered and I checked feedbacks and her name in google only to find out that she has scammed a few dozen of people already. SANA NAMAN PO MAGAWAN NATIN NG PARAAN NA MAHULI ITONG SCAMMER NA ITO. DI KO NA HINAHANGAD NA MAIBALIK PA PERA KO PERO SANA IN THIS WAY WE CAN HELP LAHAT NG VICTIMS NYA AT WALA NA IBA PANG MABIKTIMA SI michelle “michee” Cruz, her middle name is Dimapilis based on my research. sana po pagtuunan nyo ng pansin itong message ko. She has been doing this scam since 2012, and until now wala pa po action at libreng libre parin sya gumalaw at manloko ng tao. These are photos provided by her to assure her “customers” that she is a legitimate online seller.
    Please help us work on finding and stopping this woman from her modus and scams.

    luisonlinetrading also known as Jhames Luis Mercado is a Fraudulent Seller. (OLX.ph profile link: http://members.olx.ph/index.php/view+user+classifieds/id/3961715/luisonlinetrading?_report=1&recent=1)

    This is in regards to his Ad, “zenfone 5 by asus 16gb ram 32gb rom” (original link, but he has deleted the ad:http://www.olx.ph/index.php/view+classifieds/id/65643427/zenfone+5+by+asus+16gb+ram+32gb+rom?referralKeywords=asus+zenfone+5&event=Search+Ranking,Position,1-3,3#advertisementDetails).

    I decided to buy it so he asked me to send him half (PHP 1,575) of his selling amount (PHP 3,150) so he can ship the unit over to his Smart Money Account 5299-6756-0427-7101. He was hurrying me to send the money so he can ship the unit once he receives the payment. But when I texted him the Reference # 060343679111, he made all sorts of excuses that he could ship the unit. First, he said, all smart remittance center in his area (Baguio City) are already closed (I sent him the money around 5:00 PM, 17 Jan 2014). Second, he said that he needs me to send him PHP 350 for the shipping but he told me earlier he is going to free the shipping as goodwill. Third, he said that it is raining in his area, so he can’t go to LBC. Fourth, he said he is undecided to whether return my money or send me the unit because I told him I want our transaction cancelled. And so on and so forth he used delaying tactics. Now he is not replying to my Text messages anymore, and he has already deactivated his account on OLX.ph and deleted his Ad already. Lesson learned, when making online purchases, it is best to meet up with the seller to close the transaction, choose the top rated sellers, if it’s too good to be true then it is a fraud just like his Ad selling a Zenfone 5 that has 32GB of external memory and 16GB of RAM for only PHP 3,150. I made a mistake, I was not wise enough. Charged to experience.
