Fake Raiders

The Business Software Alliance warns schools, internet cafes and other computer-related establishments to be on guard against “unscrupulous persons pretending to be members of the Pilipinas Anti-Piracy Team conducting raids on companies using unlicensed computer software for extortion purposes.”

These people are playing on people’s fears of being caught with pirated software as a large percentage of software use in the Philippines is illegal.

In recent weeks the Anti-Piracy Task Force has been conducting raids on those businesses selling pirated softwares but they are now shifting their focus onto business that use pirated software.
