The messages usually require the recipient to contact a specific number or send a reply to claim his/her prize, the DBM said. ?Please be advised that the DBM does not hold raffle draws, promos, or other similar contests,? it said in a statement. ?The DBM is a government agency that oversees public fund expenditure for the National Government. As such, the DBM does not engage in commercial and promotional activities, nor does it contact individual members of the public via SMS,? it added. The agency advised the public to disregard text messages purportedly sent by the DBM and other government departments and agencies. ?Furthermore, we urge scam victims or SMS recipients to report these incidents to the concerned department, the Department of Trade and Industry, and the National Bureau of Investigation to facilitate proper criminal action against the perpetrators,? it said. ]]>
