Text message scammers, beware. Your random text messages asking for prepaid load might have reached President Benigno “Noynoy” Aquino III.

Aquino admitted he has been getting weird text messages. He also once replied to someone pretending to be his relative.

“Ang masakit pati scam. Kamusta na kayo diyan, ito na ang bagong roaming ko. Paulit-ulit din. Noong isang beses, nang hindi ko pa alam na scam ‘yon, sinagot ko na, ‘Who is this please? Mukha hong missend.’ Sagot, kapatid mo,” Aquino told reporters when asked if he still has the time to send text messages.

Amused, Aquino sent the apparent scammer a reply: “Wala akong kapatid sa abroad, good night sa inyo.”

Aquino’s sisters Ballsy, Pinky, Viel, and Kris all live in the Philippines.

“Noong una, naaawa ako na baka nagkakamali ito, hindi pa niya nakausap ang kamag-anak niya. Pero nakabalik ng tatlong beses, loko itong mga ito,” Aquino said.

Aquino said he has also been getting text messages that were offering car or housing loans.

Aquino said he is now tempted to change his number.

The President said he is now checking or replying to text messages in the morning and in the evening before he goes to sleep.

“So ang pinaka-practical, umpisa ng araw at bago matapos ang araw,” said Aquino.
