Globe spurs fight against online fraud, blocks over 140,000 smishing messages

Ayala-led Globe Telecom said it successfully blocked 142,575 smishing messages related to fraud in February and March this year.

Globe said that this is possible because of the firm’s consistent effort in improving their security tools and platforms.

Anton Bonifacio, the telco’s chief information security officer said that Globe is collaborating with government and industry players to share programs on threat information. It added that it has been pushing awareness campaigns against cyber attacks through SMS, social media, and its official website to keep the public informed.

The official encouraged its customers to participate in Globe’s #StopSPAM campaign where they can report scam messages via the company’s website.

In 2021, Globe blocked over 1.15 billion scam and spam messages, 7,000 mobile numbers likned to fraud, and 2,000 unofficial social media accounts and phishing websites.
