There are still online scams using SIM cards, even though the SIM Card Registration Law is in place.

The Presidential Anti-Organized Crime Commission, as shown in Marisol Abdurahman’s story on “24 Oras,” found that anime names and addresses made up of only numbers and symbols can be used to register SIM cards.

Also, scammers can register up to 64 SIM cards at once using tools like the one that police took away in a recent raid.

During its show, the PAOCC registered a SIM card with the name and image of Bart Simpson and Monkey D. Luffy. It only took three minutes to do that.
