    Sure ka bro hindi si Ana Marie yung nasa website na un? Wow, kawawa naman ung girl na nasa picture kung ganun. Paano kaya malalaman ung tunay na identity nun?

    • Menard August 11, 2009 10:14 pm 

      @ark
      Hula lang yun. Kase di ba kung ikaw ba yung scammer, ilalagay mo ba totoong picture mo sa scam site mo?
      Sa tingin ko biktima rin lang yung babae sa picture.

  2. Selboy August 15, 2009 11:23 am

      @joey

      Nakakalungkot lang isipin na yung kahenyohan eh ginagamit sa ganitong paraan.

    I got the SMS 4 AM today September 2 from a number not in my phoneboook (09276134788)having the same crop! btw new site given is www. marievel.cjb.net.

      @edwin
      Thanks!
      I like the “ingat” reminder! sounds like an ad in tv! 🙂

    Menard,

    I just happen to cross into this site. Thanks at meron ka nitong Comment Site na makakapag ‘share’ ng mga tulad nitong scam. Nakatanggap rin ako ng SMS from this Marie a few months ago at alam ko na scam ito. I’m a travel agent in Manila kaya naisipan ko ‘laruin’ itong scam noon. sinagot ko SMS nya at sumagot din sya. Hiningi ko ang travel plans nya at kailan sya luluwas ng Manila,hanggang nahalata yata nya na wala ako mapapadalang pera, tumigil rin sya. BTW, napansin ko, panay male ang prospect nya, Di kaya alam nya kung sino-sino mga pinadadalhan nya SMS? Duda rin ako, hinde babae itong gumagawa nito. Salamat uli at Mabuhay kayo!

    Tzun

    • Menard September 8, 2009 10:06 pm 

      @Johnny
      Hi Tzun! You are welcome! Awareness campaign itong blog posts ko, parang advocacy ko na rin kontra sa mga iskamers.
      Salamat rin sa pagbisita at pag comment!

  10. JorellM September 14, 2009 1:26 pm 

    i just received an SMS from this Anna Marie Velasco yesterday, Sept 13. Before that, a similar SMS was sent a week ago. How come this scammer was able to obtain our postpaid cellphone numbers? NTC should investigate GLOBE, SMART and SUN as someone from them could be conniving with these text scammers!

  11. Sol October 11, 2009 11:21 pm 

    I’m really pissed off with that text scam of marie marie velasco. she’s been texting me for days! anyway, i have emailed her website and text messages to DOST and sent warning to my friends and colleagues

  12. Engel October 13, 2009 10:39 am 

    Just received sms from this #09276135127… Same message as above with a new website : hxxp://www.mariebacolod.tk/
    I will inform my friends regarding this new sms scam…. Nice public service site.

    • Menard October 13, 2009 2:20 pm 

      @Engel
      Thanks!

  13. Lei October 16, 2009 7:50 pm 

    Ako din nakareceive ng text from her. The same number as with Engel and website. I blogged about this too para kumalat naman at maging aware ang tao. Grabe, d ko na nga sya nireplyan sa una nyang text. Nagtext na naman yesterday ng parang biodata nya. Tapos today nangungulit na naman. Nakakainis! Hmpt!

    • Menard October 16, 2009 9:19 pm 

      @Lei,
      Thanks for the visit and the comment!
      Tama! I-blog natin at i-expose yang scam na yan. Ayus yung sinabi mo sa blog mo “Walang manloloko kung walang magpapaloko.”

  14. marion October 17, 2009 12:12 pm 

    hi..my mom receives txt msgs from this annamarie velasco too..from the very start im convinced that its a scam but im just wondering what this person’s up to?anu nmn mppala nya kng ganun?

  15. Ziggy October 19, 2009 5:51 pm 

    damn this scam!!! my boyfriend just easily fell for this scam.. it just ruined our relationship! im thankful that i hav found this site..

  16. JienMu October 26, 2009 3:36 am 

    thanks for this site, muntik na rin ako…..she used Cell “mobile number removed pending verification from commenter”. I’ve called her and she narrated the same story. I just known that this scammer had been operating since last year, siguro dami na rin siyang nabiktima. Buti na lang at nag-Google muna ako. Thanks again.

  17. kaye November 11, 2009 1:17 pm 

    +639165571006 is also the number of the one Marie Velasco begging for help to come here in Manila to find a job. Its a mess….

  18. kaye November 11, 2009 1:20 pm 

    Thanks for this site. Although i don’t believe those text messages, i still bothered myself to check to the internet who this kind of woman allegedly a La Salle graduate having a SMS “revelation of her kagagahan and katangahan”. How can Lasalita do it? I dont think so.

  19. mench November 20, 2009 10:31 am 

    Hi..got the same message last night, this is the number she used 09165571065. tried to call the number but she doesnt answer.just want sana to make chitchat with her..hahaha..

  20. Jules November 23, 2009 8:10 pm 

    Warning to all, Anna/Marie’s New Number – 09165571065

    SCAM SCAM SCAM.

    Tinanong ko siya paano siya nagka-pera para sa website niya eh wala siyang pamasahe to Manila.

    She keeps texting me kasi I responded to her once. I want to catch this girl, I’m sure marami na siyang nabiktima.

  21. cristy December 7, 2009 9:54 pm 

    thanks that I opened the text website. I was just waiting for her exact address and was about to book her. have tried to text her several times asking for exact address which I will need for the booking. Kaya pala ayaw ibigay eh scam. Diyos na ang bahala sa kanya.

  22. Bassman January 13, 2010 5:11 pm 

    I worked for san miguel corp before and there is no such thing as san mig. nagtext din sa akin using cel # 0915-7434187. god bless her..

    • Menard January 13, 2010 11:33 pm 

      @Bassman
      Thanks for the visit and for leaving a comment!
      That same number was also given by another commenter here.

  23. godismywitness January 13, 2010 8:03 pm 

    The scammer is also using this no.: 09157434187

    F*ck..This is obviously a scam..I’m educated enough to know what’s going on..

    All i can say to this “Marie” or whoever this person may be is that: “Go to he*l you piece of sh*t..May God have mercy on your soul”

    • Menard January 13, 2010 11:31 pm 

      @godismywitness
      Thanks for the visit and keep cool! 🙂
      I know this scam of Marie Velasco is really frustrating. I’ll update this post when i got new info on variations on her scam.

      btw, I did some minor edit on the comment to comply with my comment policy.

  29. Tina February 20, 2010 7:10 pm 

    This ANNA MARIE VELASCO has been sending my Mom SMS around November/December last year. It’s been our rule not to respond to any messages such as this since this could possibly be a scam. She had been very persistent with her texts, but as always we did not respond. She had stopped texting mid-January and it was until last week that we started receiving messages from her once more. All her SMS had the same underlying message: she needs financial aid so that she can attend the “interview” with SMC.

    I suppose we will no longer be hearing from her since her last SMS to us were something in the lines of ‘Sana masaya kayo sa ginawa niyo. Meron kayong pinaiyak na probinsyana dahil sa hindi pagtulong niyo. Sana palakpakan kayo sa ginawa niyo.’ In that case, GOOD RIDDANCE!

    You’re comment did not follow my comment policy (its too long). I divided it into two parts, hope its ok with you.

    • Tina February 20, 2010 8:12 pm 

      [Edit by Menard 02.20.2010] Part 2 of Tina’s comment
      Personally, I have no ill feelings toward this person. In fact, I pity her that she would have to resolve to these actions in order get through life. Pathetic. Besides, I don’t think she will succeed in her scam as long as people are not fooled by it. “Wag magpaloko sa manloloko”. The only thing that bothers me is that she sends text messages in the wee hours of the morning and it’s been very bothersome to my Mom since she get awaken by these text messages.

      I am curious though as to how this Anna Marie Velasco comes up with the mobile number she sends texts to. Is it purely random? And if someone decides to help her, would she be willing to personally get the cash?

      Anyway, that’s all. Thanks and stay safe everyone.

    The recent sms scam from Anna Marie turns to be revising together with her mobile number in use and the format of asking riskfull favor on the same path. I received 2 sms scam messages from each mobile number +639173617046 on 03 Mar 10:45am and from 7045 13 Mar 10:36pm.

      [Edit By Menard] 2nd part of Joy Aldeguer’s comment:

      Being curious on her sms format and as an Ilongga speaking person who freshly graduated from Bacolod, never can she communicate fluently in tagalog format sms and that’s what made me think the sms was an scam. She replies if you provoke her on any further query ( see above ). Just quit making replies to save your text expenses and delete the sms once received any from above mobile numbers.

      The bad thing was the waste of time receiving the sms alert and checking the message…
