Annamarie Velasco

I got a text message from Annamarie Velasco.
Pued po b akong humingi ng 2long sa inyo? I’m Annamarie, 21yo fresh grad po from bacolod. Gagawin ko po ang lahat ng kapalit na gusto nio, ma2lungan nio lng po akong makapunta sa mynila. Im willing to take the risks. My job hiring na po kc ako jan sa smc-ortigas, sayang naman po kung madidissolve lng.. My picture po ako sa www.mvelasco. cjb.net – Marie


I checked the website. Seems true, but anyone can make a website nowadays. Especially Information Management daw sya. So I discussed it with my classmate and we made the following reply:



1. Mag-ingat ka sa tinetext mo.
2. Mag-ingat ka sa taong tinetext mo.
3. Mura lang ang pamasahe. (sabi ni classmate, may 230 pesos ngang plane fare eh)
4. Kung may job offer ka, you should have negotiated the compensation.
5. Paano ka maiinterview at makakapagexam kung di ka pa nila nakikita?
6. Kung gusto ka nila talaga i-hire, hindi nila ididissolve yung position.
7. Paano mo nalaman number ko?
8. Paano ka naging fresh grad eh di pa graduation? (although my sister said na graduation na raw).



Then I was thinking she's from La Salle, a DOST scholar. That scholarship is not enough.



A few days later, she texted:
Name: Marie Velasco
Age: 21
Birthdate: Feb 21, 1987
Height: 5'7"
Complexion: Fair
Vital Stats: 35-25-36
Hair: Long and straight
Other: joined some provincial pageants for allowance
Course: BS Information Management (Computer and Accountancy)
School: DOST Scholar in University of St. La Salle – Bacolod
Parents: Anna and Mario Velasco (both deceased)
Picture: www.mvelasco. cjb.net



After that, a few days passed then she texted again the same mesage, the first one.

Nabother ako...So I asked what position and office and company addresss and she replied
My deadline na po sana kasi ako dis coming march 23 po. 9am sa SMITS department po sa ortigas. Junior IT Specialist po ung position na inaaplayan ko...Sayang po tlga kc dhl related sa course ko...



I replied that I will be confirming first then we'll get her personal details that would be needed to book a flight via credit card. She did not reply. I was in class so I asked Nelson to do the searching and calling for me. At lunch break when Nelson had not yet succeeded, I used the internet and phone in the department to contact SMITS. The HR said that I was the 2nd caller (Nelson was the 4th). They do not have any applicant for interview nor for hiring with the name.



With that, it's a scam.



I browsed the net. She uses different websites. The first one above, and the 2nd is www.annamarie. cjb.net and there's www.annevelasco. cjb.net. There are also different stories, and what she is willing to give for her to go here. She is willing to have sex (she claims to be a virgin at that). She said she randomly texted numbers with 09178 - I was thinking, these numbers are all Globe plans. It has been said this has been going on since 2007. She uses different phone numbers. She only accepts cash (not e-tickets), because "there is terminal fee to pay" (like, hey it is only 30 Pesos). Other comments would say she got low grades. This is La Salle, highest grade is 4.0, lowest is 1.0. I also computed her age.Twenty-one and she was born 1987. She should be 22. And a lot more. So be careful. Always.

Hi, i'm from La Salle-Bacolod as well. I've double checked with our registrars and there's no such course as BS Information Management in our school. she's also claiming to be a fresh grad, but her TOR, diploma and other docs are dated March 2008... Her diploma shows special order # ... etc... w/c is totally fake. Our school is exempted from special order given by CHED since it is PAASCU accredited and given full antonomy for several years now... this is 100% scam!

This girl is obviously a faker/ poser.
Well crafted scam. Intelligent scammer.
She will ask you to send money via a bank account or money transfer (Western Union, LBC).
She is already being tracked by Anti Cybercrime Syndicate, a private group going after cyberscammers.
Her days are numbered!

If you have received a message in your cellphone from these numbers beware!!!

Hi! I also received such message and it agitated my wife early Saturday morning and I was awaken by her ire.

I know that this may be a scam but have we ever traced her being and where in Bacolod is she residing.

Am sure, if this is really a true person with untrue messages, then she should be apprehended.

Ang hirap kasi sa BANSANG ito, madaling BUMILI ng SIM card, 50 pesos lang, meron ka na SIM na magagamit para manloko ng tao!

What kind of independence we have here. Pinoy pa, madaling makaisip ng mga ways to trick other Filipino people.

Hi, I just received the same messages for the last 6 months and the latest in the last 6 days. I was willing to help w/o asking anything in return but felt it was a scam. I actually called her but she doesn't like e-ticket. Thus she is indeed a scam. Let us all beware.

A definite SCAM! there's a lot of work in Bacolod and from what I know there are call centers there too! She can start her IT career there and be a local support of the call center there. Hay... this may part of her thesis to see how technology can work for her advantage IT+Human Psychology and see how much effect this will have on people, how modern technology affects people and how efficient the modern communication is... If I was her Thesis adviser, pasado to kasi we're here commenting on this "alleged scam" and it only proves that text messages and the internet is an effective communication and marketting tool. Pero when it comes to the contents and convincing power? Olats to kasi her story makes no sense (unless tanga yung nakabasa), think about it, IT graduate, good grades, di makakuha ng trabaho at gusto pumunta ng Manila? WTF? if she has a dream she can start in Bacolod kung walang trabaho, start from clerical works or work for fast food chains at mag-ipon. tapos, San Miguel? don't you think Sam Miguel does not have a local office in Bacolod? if she's really worth it they'll hire and pay for her travel costs and accomodation. Hay... if this is a real SCAM, poor execution but if this is a study, well done! an effective testcase! Cheers!

BTW, new number nya ---> 09173501435
