Here's the full DBM advisory courtesy of Department of Budget and Management (Philippines)

It has come to our attention that scammers claiming to be representatives of the Department of Budget and Management (DBM) are sending text messages announcing winners to an alleged DBM raffle. The messages usually require the recipient to contact a specific number or send a reply to claim his/her prize.
Please be advised that the DBM does not hold raffle draws, promos, or other similar contests. The DBM is a government agency that oversees public fund expenditure for the National Government. As such, the DBM does not engage in commercial and promotional activities, nor does it contact individual members of the public via SMS.
The public is advised to disregard text messages purportedly sent by the DBM and other government departments and agencies. Furthermore, we urge scam victims or SMS recipients to report these incidents to the concerned department, the Department of Trade and Industry, and the National Bureau of Investigation to facilitate proper criminal action against the perpetrators.
Thank you for your cooperation.
