Aiko Melendez Gives Warning to Those Who Are Using Her Boyfriend’s Name in Scams
AIKO MELENDEZ – The actress gives a warning to Zambales scammers who were allegedly using her boyfriend Jay Khonghun’s name in scams.
Aiko Melendez has advised the constituents of her boyfriend Jay Khonghun, the vice governor of Zambales, against utilizing the platform for a scam on Instagram. Aiko fabricated a bogus text message from her boyfriend begging for help with the Aetas on her Instagram account.
“Good evening po Senator. Si vice Governor Jay Khonghun po ito ng Zambales, pwede po ba kami makalapit sa inyo para po sa gaganapin na activity dito sa lalawigan namin para po sa katutubo nating mga Aetras. Salamat po Godbless,”
The bogus text message was released by Aiko to alert other government officials and her boyfriend’s constituents that scammers are using his name to commit fraud. The vice governor went on to say that the SMS pleading for donations did not come from his office or from him.
“Magandang Gabi po Sa aking mga kababayan sa Olongapo At Zambales. Nitong mga nakaraang araw, meron pong gumagamit ng aking pangalan upang humingi ng pondo para sa Ating mga kapatid na mga katutubo,” he said.
Jhay further stated that he will not approach anyone, particularly senators. He went on to say that he only has one mobile number.
“Nais ko lamang linawin na HINDI po ako lumalapit kahit Kanino man at Lalong lalo na sa ating mga butihing mga Senador. Iisa lamang po ang cellphone number na ginagamit ko,” he explained.
Some senators, he claims, have been duped by this scheme. The vice governor further urges people not to take advantage of indigenous people’s welfare in order to commit fraud.
“May mga Senador napo na nabiktima ng manloloko na ito. Wag sana nating gamitin ang kapakanan ng ating mga kapatid na katutubo Sa kalokohan,” he said.
Jhay sent a warning to the fraudsters who were perpetrating fraudulent crimes in his name, stating that he had already denounced them to the National Bureau of Investigation (NBI). Following that, the politician advised voters to report any strange text messages sent in his name.
“Kung sino ang gumagamit ng aking pangalan tigilan nyo na po ito dahil nagreklamo na po ako Sa NBI. Salamat po #careNshare @vicegov_jaykhonghun,” Aiko captioned in her Instagram post.
