PingBills | Ping: Pag Prepaid SIM Cards Rehistrado, Sigurado Walang Makapanloloko

Kapag rehistrado ang SIM card ng mobile device ng isang tao, hindi niya ito basta-bastang magagamit sa paggawa ng krimen at ibang ilegal na aktibidad, lalo na ang panloloko sa kapwa para magkapera lamang.

Ito ang pangunahing nilalaman ng Senate Bill 25 o β€œPrepaid Subscriber Identity Module Cards Regulations Act of 2019” na inihain ni Senador Panfilo Lacson.

Kabilang sa mga layunin ng Senate Bill 25 ang sugpuin ang krimen at mga kabulastugang nagaganap gamit ang mga mobile gadgets gaya ng cellular phones, sa harap na rin ng katotohanan na nahihirapan ang mga awtoridad na ma-monitor at makontrol ang nagaganap na abuso sa mga makabagong teknolohiya ng komunikasyon.

PingBills | To Stop ‘Tapon-SIM’ Scams, Crimes: Lacson Files Bill Requiring Prepaid SIM Card Registration

A bill by Sen. Panfilo M. Lacson may finally help stop online scams and so-called “Tapon-SIM” crimes where criminals use prepaid SIM cards that can be disposed of to throw law enforcers off their trail.

Senate Bill 25, dubbed the β€œPrepaid Subscriber Identity Module (SIM) Cards Regulations Act of 2019,” requires the registration of prepaid SIM cards to prevent their illegal or malicious use.

“Not only is this prepaid SIM card easily accessible, i.e., it can be bought almost anywhere, the owners thereof can likewise easily evade detection since prepaid SIM cards are virtually undetectable. Due to this, unscrupulous individuals almost always take advantage of the same in the pursuit of their criminal activities to the detriment not only of a particular interest but that of the whole nation,” Lacson, who as a law enforcer had fought kidnap-for-ransom gangs that used such ‘Tapon-SIM’ tactics, said in his bill.
