Nollywood actress, Mercy Aigbe-Gentry has reacted to the growing number of impostors using her name to scam unsuspecting fans via Facebook.
The actress recently disclosed that she operates no Facebook account while urging members of the public to stop relating with anyone who poses as her representative via any of the mind boggling 67 Facebook accounts in her name.
A statement by the actress, who re-affirmed that she operates no Facebook account, states: ‘I have received calls from different sections of the public that I run a film school and a modeling agency where people have to pay to be part of. Some unsuspecting members of the public have paid large amount of money to these fraudsters who are only bent of swindling them of their hard earned cash.’
Divulging recent scenarios regarding this, the state adds: ‘A young lady recently walked into my MAG DIVAS office insisting she paid N25,000 into my account for an ushering job I posted on my Facebook page for a mega event on 16th of August. Another scenario was a call from a fan that he paid in N3,000 into my account for the delivery of the prize he won after answering questions on the films I have worked on. The public should stop relating with anyone claiming to be me on Facebook because I don’t run any of the 67 accounts.’
