MANILA, Philippines — Nagbabala si dating Metropolitan Manila Development Authority (MMDA) chairman Benhur Abalos, ngayon ay campaign manager ni presidential candidate Ferdinand Marcos, Jr., na-hack ang kanyang phone number kaya’t binalaan ang publiko na balewalain kung mayroong post sa FB.
“My Globe cellphone number has been hacked this morning. It has been sending out unscrupulous messages. Went to Globe office this afternoon to complain & had the number immediately suspended. Please ignore messages that you get from that number. Thank you,” pahayag niya sa social media nitong Linggo.
“As checked, complainant (cell phone number) did not send SMS to those numbers provided. We’ve validated also that complainant (cell phone number) received only SMS from them,” ayon sa service provider.
“It is possible that those numbers that sent messages to the complainant were victims of illegal broadcaster devices that used the complainants number as the sending number,” dagdag nito.
Nagbabala rin si NTC Commissioner Gamaliel A. Cordoba sa mga may-ari ng illegal broadcaster devices at kanilang operators na mahaharap sila sa kasong criminal at civil penalties.
