The message read: “Congratulations! You have successfully subscribed to Prayer of the Day! 50 PESOS will be deducted from your payload.”
She then followed up with a bible verse that read: “I have set the LORD always before me. Because He is at my right hand, I will not be shaken – Psalm 16:8”
After the spammer had got a taste of their own medicine, they quickly attempted to opt out of Shaina’s messages by replying ‘Cancel’, to which she replied “Sorry, you have entered an invalid code. Please try again.”
Her tweet has now been shared more than 65,000 thousand times.
