Nagbabala ang isang netizen sa publiko matapos manakaw ang halos lahat ng naipon nito sa kanyang Bank of the Philippine Islands (BPI) account.
Anito, hindi niya inakala na sa pamamagitan umano ng official BPI-OTP number ay mabibiktima siya ng online scam.
Sa Facebook post ni Justine Qui noong August 11, inilahad nito kung paano siya nabiktima ng ganitong modus.
"Last Friday, August 7, I received a text message from the OFFICIAL BPI-OTP number telling me to expect a call.
"The message said their agent with the number 09162083912 would call regarding my account. Sure, a little strange, but this was the official BPI-OTP number that has been sending me all my previous OTPs for all my online transactions.
"Past experience told me this number only sent automated messages, so this must’ve been an official call from BPI, right?" anito.
Kinabukasan daw nang makatanggap siya ng tawag mula sa numerong nakasaad sa BPI-OTP message.
"The “representative” on the phone told me that BPI was testing out a new system and needed customer confirmation that their messages were being sent and received in real time.

"I was told to read two sample messages out loud, which I would realize were activation keys that allowed the scammers to access my BPI online account," sabi ni Qui.
Nang gabi ring iyon ng makatanggap naman daw siya ng mga emails na nagsasabing mayroong funds transfers mula sa kanyang account at dineposito sa isang Paymaya account.
Laking panghihinayang naman ni Qui na P200 na lamang ang natira sa kanyang naipon. Agad naman daw niya itong ini-report sa BPI.
"I immediately contacted the BPI customer support hotline to ask for help. I forwarded a screenshot of the BPI-OTP message I received from THEIR number. You know, the number we’ve been conditioned to trust because that’s where all our OTPs come from," anito.
"I told the support personnel what happened, and all they could offer was to report the issue. They said they couldn’t do anything about the money stolen from me with the help of their own security number. Nothing. Nada. Just me, a “reported issue,” and my annual savings of Php 200."
Ikinabahala rin ni Qui na ang mismong BPI-OTP number pa ang nagamit ng mga scammer.
"Aside from the obvious issue of losing all my money, what concerns me the most is that the BPI-OTP number - an official number that I am supposed to trust for all my banking transfer passwords - is compromised," anito.
