WARNING: Online scammer, gumagamit ng private message sa pag-hack ng social media account

scam, Phishing scam, internet scam, facebook scam

Ingat tayo sa mga PM, PM sa Facebook pwede pala ma-hack ang account mo! Ilang netizen ang nabiktima ng online scammer para mang-hack ng social media account gamit ang private message na kunwaring may "sex video scandal" ang kanilang tatargetin.

Sa ulat ni Joseph Morong sa GMA News "24 Oras" nitong Lunes, ikinuwento ni Freshelle Fernandez kung papaano na-hack ang kaniyang Facebook account nang matanggap ang mensahe sa messenger mula sa isang kakilala, na una na palang na-hack ang account.

Sabi ni Freshelle nagpadala ng mensahe ang kaniyang friend sa messenger tungkol daw sa kaniyang private video at may kasamang "link."

Dahil may agam-agam, pinindot niya (click) ang "link" at dito ay pinag-log-in siya. Inilagay niya ang password sa account at doon na naagaw ang kaniyang Facebook account.

"Napakagaling na po yung technology ngayon. Kayang- kaya pong iedit gamit yung mukha ko kaya po natakot ako tsaka kinabahan. Kasi kahit po hindi ako yung nasa video, kung pangalan ko po yung gamit, iisipin po ng mga tao na ako 'yun," paliwanag ni Fernandez.

Ginamit na rin ng hacker ang kaniyang account para makapanloko ng mga taong nasa friend list niya at kunwaring nag-aalok ng mamahaling cellphone.

Ayon sa I.T. expert na si Jerry Liao, ang nangyari kay Fernandez ay isang uri ng online scam na tinatawag na "phishing scam."

"Basically 'pag nag-enter ka ng username at password, mapupunta yun dun sa cybercriminal, then of course nakarecord 'yon, they can use your log-in information into your website or  to your account, Facebook account. So puwede na nilang gawin kung anong gusto nilang gawin sa account mo," paliwanag ni Liao.

Matapos mag-viral ang kuwento ni Fernandez, nagsilabasan na rin ang iba pang nagkuwento na nakaranas ng kahalintulad na modus operandi ng panloloko sa Facebook.

Sa record ng PNP-Anti-cybercrime Group, apat lang ang kaso ng "phishing scam" sa halos 4,600 cyber crime cases mula 2013 hanggang nitong Hunyo.

Ngunit hindi raw ibig sabihin nito na madalang ang naturang uri ng panloloko. Sa halip, madalas daw nauuwi ang "phishing scam" sa mas malalang krimen.

"Ang pagrereport kasi nila dito, yung secondary offense na na-commit ng offender after committing the offense of phishing, like online scam and sextortion cases. Dapat na agad-agad sila na mag-report lalong-lalo na dito sa aming opisina," ayon kay Police Senior Inspector Artemio Cinco, PIO, PNP Anti-Cybercrime Group.

Upang hindi mabiktima ng "phishing scam," ipinayo ni Liao na laging maging mapanuri at magduda lalo na kung humihingi ng mga personal na impormasyon tulad ng mga bank account at password.

Huwag din umanong maniwala kaagad sa mga natatanggap na mensahe lalo na sa mga hindi kakilala. At kung kakilala ang nagpadala ng mensahe at humihingi rin ng sensitibong mga impormasyon, makabubuting kontakin muna ang mga ito para makumpirma kung sa kanila talaga galing ang ipinadalang mensahe. -- Source GMA News

Driver's License With 5-year Validity Will Be Issued Tomorrow

Driver's License 5 Years Valid, five years valid DL, identification cards, LTO Central Office, LTO to release first batch of 5-years-old-valid driver’s license,

The Land Transportation Office will release the first batch of driver’s license cards with five-year validity today at the LTO Central Office in Quezon City.

About three million Driver's license applicants who applied for new and renewed licenses since October 2016 will be receiving their five-year-valid identification cards starting tomorrow.

President Rodrigo Duterte had earlier signed Republic Act 1093 which allows the extension of the validity of the driver’s and conductor’s licenses from three years to five years.

In an interview with the Manila Bulletin Transportation Secretary Arthur Tugade said that the five-year license cards are made more durable from polycarbonate plastic and have improved security features.

He said that the agency awarded last April the P830-million procurement of the license cards to supply six million ID cards.

The transportation chief said that the supply would satisfy demands for driver’s license until 2018.

The LTO, however, was directed to be stricter on the issuance of the driver’s licenses to assure that licenses will only be issued to competent applicants with sufficient driving skills and knowledge of road safety and proper road courtesy.

PNoy Appointed Comelec Chair Accused by Wife of Having 1 Billion Pesos Unexplained Wealth

Andres ‘Andy’ Bautista

Former President Benigno Aquino III appointed chairman of the Commission on Elections (Comelec) is being accused of amassing ill-gotten wealth by his own wife. In a press conference earlier today, Patricia Bautista, the wife of Commission on Elections (Comelec) chairman Andres ‘Andy’ Bautista told reporters that she had signed an affidavit accusing her husband of accumulating at least PHP1 billion (USD20 million) in “unexplained wealth.”

“I understand that since Andy holds the position of Comelec chair, he is liable to be impeached should there exist valid and sufficient grounds to hold him in trial for an impeachable offense under Sec. 2, Article XI of the 1987 Philippine Constitution,” Patricia Bautista said in the affidavit.

In the report by the Philippine Daily Inquirer, Patricia said her husband who was also a former chairman of the agency tasked with recovering the ill-gotten wealth of former dictator Ferdinand Marcos had wealth of his own hidden in overseas bank accounts as well as real estate investments in the Philippines and abroad.

The affidavit lists the following properties as assets not included in the chairman’s statement of assets, liabilities and net worth:

• Thirty-five Luzon Development Bank (LDB) passbooks with a total balance of PHP329,220,962 (approx. USD6.5 million)
• A Rizal Commercial Banking Corp. (RCBC) dollar account amounting to USD12,778.30 (PHP641,000)
• An RCBC peso account with PHP257,931.60 (USD5,518)
• An HSBC account with HKD948,358.97 (PHP6.10 million)
• A condominium unit in One Bonifacio High Street at Bonifacio Global City (BGC) in Taguig City
• A condo unit in The District in San Francisco, California

Patricia, who said she had been wanting to separate from her husband since 2013, wanted to “make a distinction between the ‘clean’ and ‘dirty’ money that forms part of our conjugal property.” She said she could not, however, make the distinction herself because her husband controls “most of if not all” of their finances.

In addition to the bank accounts and real estate, Patricia said her husband also has business interests in foreign companies.
Companies named in the affidavit include:

• Bauman Enterprises Ltd., a company set up in the British Virgin Islands on Sept. 29, 2010; a trustee company set up with Bank of Singapore.
• Mantova International Ltd., founded in Darussalam, Brunei, in 2011.
• Mega Achieve Inc., established in Anguilla, a British territory in 2014.

Prior to submitting an affidavit to the National Bureau of Investigation (NBI) last August 1, Patricia was able to meet with President Rodrigo Duterte in late July to tell him about the alleged ‘unexplained’ wealth of her husband.

She said she spoke to Duterte out of “fear” of her husband “and his network.” She said she had also filed violence against women and children complaint against her husband for alleged “emotional and economic sabotage.”

Andres Bautista heads the Comelec which has been slam last election for massive fraud.

Duterte Sinagot si Noynoy: Gago ka (WATCH)

Duterte drug war, Noynoy Aquino, Oplan Tukhang

President Rodrigo Duterte on Wednesday answered former President Benigno Aquino III who criticized his drug war with "Sige, pumasok ka sa droga PNoy, ‘pag hindi kita pinutulan ng ulo, buang ka. Anong walang nangyari? Gago ka," he said at the 113th founding anniversary of the Bureau of Internal Revenue.

Duterte said that uniformed officials during Aquino's term such as General Vicente Loot had drug links.

"Mga generals mo, ‘yang aide mo, ‘yung aide ni [former Interior Secretary Mar] Roxas puro nasa droga, konektado. Number one diyan ‘yung bata ninyo si General Loot, isa pa ‘yang u– na ‘yan," he said.

Duterte also told reporters after his speech that he had almost achieved in a year what Aquino managed to do in six years.

"Kasi sabi niya, walang nangyari sa campaign. Tingnan naman niya, in all of his six years, he was only able to seize or catch about 3,045 kilos of shabu. Ako, dito ngayon sa akin, just one year, I have already seized about 2,000–nearing 3,000 sa entire six years niya," he said.

Aquino had previously defended his administration's record against drugs, noting that the number of drug users didn't increase during his tenure.

Aquino on Tuesday questioned the Duterte administration's campaign against illegal drugs, and was quoted as saying "parang wala yatang nangyari."

Noynoy Aquino Said Duterte Drug War Ineffective, Malacañang Hit back

Former President Benigno Simeon Aquino III said that current President Rodrigo Duterte's drug war is ineffective. Aquino told reporters on Tuesday that during his term in 2015, statistics showed that there were 1.8 million drug users in the Philippines. At the end of 2016, the number of drug users in the country remained at 1.8 million.

“Parang wala yatang nangyari (It seems like nothing happened),” Aquino said.

Malacañang answered back with facts and figures:

Presidential Spokesperson Ernesto Abella said “Comments like the above from past leaders imply a jaded cynicism borne of a history of political opportunism, the results of (President Rodrigo Duterte’s) anti-illegal drug campaign speak for themselves.”

- unprecedented voluntary surrender of more than 1.3 million drug personalities
- 96,703 drug personalities have been arrested in the first year of the Dutertes administration’s war on drugs compared to 77,810 drug personalities arrested in the six years of the Aquino administration.
- 2,445.80 kilos of shabu (methamphetamine hydrochloride) have been seized in the first year of the present administration’s anti-drug campaign compared to the 3,219.07 kilos of shabu seized in the six years of the previous administration.
