To the scammer: Haha! Nice try! Your SMS SCAM was an epic fail. You know why? Figure it out yourself. I will post other links related to this SMS scam later. I’m just wondering why in the world did you get my number? Maybe you are conspiring with the group who are sending Spam SMS to me and my friends 🙂

To all the other readers there, just beware. The scammer goes by the name of Marie Velasco, Ann Velasco, AnnaMarie Velasco and its variants. I think she is not the really the girl in the picture (poor victim). Methinks that the scammer have the resources to change their website it to fit her new nick/identity but ironically she does not some money to go to Manila. (Sidenote: is a free hosting site, and it got my attention before for some activities related to… hehe thats worth another post)
