With extrajudicial killings and vigilantism on the rise, good-for-nothing scammers are also aiming to use this to their advantage by capitalizing on the public's fear.

In a post on Facebook, a user whose friend was almost duped shared how the new text scam meant to extort victims with death threats works.

According to the post, the scammer will first notify the target through a text message saying they were tasked to kill the latter, along with their family.

The scammer will then send another message which details the victim's private information such as their home address and workplace to scare them further.

The good part comes when the scammer says he had a change of heart and would not carry on killing the victim if he was paid a varied amount which goes up to P100,000.

The user suggested the following, to prevent being a target of the scam:

1) Never ever expose your password
2) Always log out on all your online accounts
3) Never ever put online your personal details unless the site is reputable and heavy in security
