Tip 2: Never share your MPIN or one-time password (OTP). Scammers often pose as a GCash representative or a friend to trick you into giving your OTP. Remember that your MPIN or OTP are only for you, no one else!
Tip 3: Only do GCash-related transactions within the app. Some scammers use similar-looking phishing sites to ask customers to verify their accounts or log-in. Beware of this scamming scheme! When asked to verify or log-in, only do so on the GCash app.

Also be wary of scam or spam messages posing as registration portals. Make sure you only share your personal information in the legitimate links of telecom providers.
