Actress Kris Bernal revealed over the weekend that her personal accounts including her Facebook, Twitter, and Instagram were hacked by a “suspicious” group from Turkey.
In a vlog post on her official Youtube account, the actress revealed that an unknown group hacked all of her online accounts, including Facebook, Twitter, Instagram, and email. She also added that the hackers even tried calling her and asking her to pay $750 in exchange for her accounts’ retrieval.
“I am deeply saddened that my followers have to see abnormalities and visually graphic content of violence etc in some posts earlier. I kept retrieving it since 2AM that I skipped going to work to secure my other accounts,” Kris said in a statement.
The 30-year-old actress also warned her social media followers to refrain from entertaining messages from her hacked accounts.
“Please refrain from entertaining any messages from all accounts as this is still being investigated on how I can retrieve my accounts. The hacker is calling me and asking me to pay in dollars. If they are asking money from you, kindly block and report the numbers calling you. Please report to Instagram that my account has been hacked,” she added.
“I have followed all the process to retrieve but I still can’t. If you can help me in any way, kindly leave a comment below.”
As of posting, the account of Bernal still appeared to be hacked.
