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

    Be careful with a woman named GIRLIE SALVADOR. I ordered a phone from her. After sending her the payment on smart money via BDO, she asked for a photo of the receipt. I asked for a photo of the item and the receipt of shipping via LBC. She sent me one so I thought she was really a legit seller. She even have my name on the photo of the receipt. That was a Satuday. I was still able to contact her until Tuesday but after making 18 missed calls, she then made my calls forwarded then blocked me on facebook. I believe she is using another photo on her facebook account but that wasn’t her for sure because she sounded old than her photo. To you Ms. Girlie, who told me, “babae po ako at tao ako kausap”, ” wag kayong magalala maam kasi may tskot po ako sa Diyos”, be careful of what you sow because what you will reap will be more than what you did to us. I just hope you will come to encounter God as a real Savior and not just your word decorator to scam. God bless you.

  • Scammer alert: Paulo Pobre Palmaria from Tarlac City, Tarlac. Psychopathic swindler ito. Nangangakong ibabalik yung ninakaw niya via online scam as a bogus seller gamit ang OLX (dating Sulit.ph) ang plataporma pagkatapos umamin. Puro pangako lang at walang gawa. Nanakawan ako ng P4000 nito.

    Beware of this fucking fraudster named EUGENE TAGUM DIZON from Sta. Clara, Sta. Maria, Bulacan. This man is fucking scammer claiming that he was a victim of scam and demanding you to do a cash on delivery (COD) transaction. He cheated me and after I sent the item, he never replied to all my texts. I warned him and he never listen. Now, I concluded that he is really a scammer and I became a victim of fraud activity again. Please beware and never do the same thing if this guy contact you.

    I was a victim of lending scam naman po. They said I was approved for 200K loan but I need to settle fees to get the amount so I paid 15k desperately to get the money the soonest. I have seen the contract naman and they have emailed me that the proceed with be credited to my choice of bank account last December 7. Tapos bigla pong sinabi na nag ka problem daw sa system nila kaya magprepare nalang daw ng Manager’s Check at dahil po minamadali ko sila sa proceeds bigla nilang sinabi na may delivery charge daw ang MC na worth 5K, natakot na po ako.

      Hi Malou, I also received a text message from DFC INC located in Tanay Rizal. They said I was approved for 300k loan however I have to settle 7,500 fees before transferring the money to my account. I asked them if they have website to check their financing firm but they do not reply to my emails and text messages. I believe this is really a scam. I hope you’ll be able to get your money back. Have a good day!

    • Malou Magante

      Until now the agent is still responding and Im keeping him in touch. Now they are asking another fees to settle but im no longer giving them. Did you get your money back?

    I need help! I was scammed by a person named “baby marco” at the site OLX where he has an ad that piqued my interest because the phone is cheap for only 2000 pesos. While I texted him in his phone number 09076665921 he said that hid father has a stroke and when I said that if he can ship the product he offered a discount for the ad for only 1780 and I agreed to it but I couldn’t find any legit account of his fb. He sent me his personal information and his name is RONALD PEREZ that lives in Rosales, Pangasinan where I sent my payment through palawan pawnshop and right after he claimed the money he asked my address and name but he didn’t replied for 3 hours so I called him with my another phone number and he answered that he is in lbc processing the product and after that he texted me with a fake lbc tracking number and texted me that when will I send the other half of the payment in which we didn’t discussed and then he blocked my 3 phone numbers after I tried calling him many times. Please help me. Do not be tricked by this person everyone.
