Nowadays, fake news is an all-too common occurrence not too dissimilar from, say, having subsequent typhoons visiting our lovely little archipelago for a bit of havoc.
it is as such that it is always good thing to double check everything you see or read before believing in them.
Take for example a recent episode involving Angel Locsin.
Apparently, a scammer is using the actress’ popularity as philanthropist in duping netizens into giving donations supposedly as intended for calamity victims.
It’s a good thing Angel got wind of it sooner than later, quickly warning fans about it.
“Any page na nag o-offer ng help na may nakalagay na ‘Angel Locsin’ ay fake po,” the 35-year-old posted on Instagram.
“Hindi ko po ginagamit ang pangalan ko pag tumutulong,” she reiterated, adding that the current Facebook page they’re using for their actual effort concerning typhoon victims is “Typhoon Ulysses Assistance Initiative.”
