Vivoree Expresses Dismay to Scammers Using Famous Names for Fraud Activities
Kapamilya actress Vivoree Esclito expresses her disappointment with scammers for using famous names to scam other people.
People who prefer to use other people’s names to defraud are still common, according to Vivoree. According to the actress, she was also a victim of this fraud, in which her identity was exploited to deceive others.
This type of job is wrong and unlawful, the actress said at the online press conference for “Click, Like, Share.” Vivoree said that there was a fraudster who purported to be her and preyed on unsuspecting folks.
“Ginamit ‘yung pangalan ko to scam other people. I think it’s as worse as being scammed directly,” said Vivoree.
The actress made no indication of the type of fraud in which her identity was employed. In the meanwhile, Vivoree is keeping the public in this state. ‘Don’t just hand out personal information to prevent scams,’ she said.
“Naloloko pa rin ‘yung ibang tao at ginagamit ‘yung pangalan mo. It’s very unfortunate na ginagawa ‘yun ng mga tao. We just have to be careful din talaga not to disclose our personal information. Let’s also ask help from other people. Trace ‘yung mga taong nambiktima,” she reminded.
Many scammers have recently preyed on their victims on social media and other internet platforms by exploiting the identities of prominent people. Some con artists stated that the individual they utilized was holding a raffle and activities where people might win a large sum of money.
