Actress Sophie Lichaba has joined a long list of celebrities who are victims of scamming on social media.
In the past we’ve seen the likes of Somizi, Jessica Nkosi, Shawn ‘MaMkhize’ Mkhize condemning imposters who posed as them on social media in a bid to solicit money from their fans.
The former Generations actress, who made a name for herself a bubbly ‘Queen Moroka’ who was a connoisseur of the finer things in life on the defunct SABC1 soapie, has also come out to issue a warning to her fans. She took to her social media to alert them of a fake account that has been created under her name.
The fake account has been hard at work, convincing social media users to join Bamboo Money, promising them big returns when they invest their cash into this pyramid scheme.
“FAKE Account Alert!!! Attached Facebook account is fake! Including the scam of taking money from people. Please share! People are stranded and sick minded using people like me. Be cautious. Do not invest!!!” Sophie wrote on her Facebook account.
Her followers appreciated the alert in the comments section, with some advising the actress to get her account verified so it’s easier for Facebook users to differentiate between a fake account and her original account.
“Please have your account verified so it has that blue tick at the top just after your surname,” one fan wrote.
“Thank you for letting us know my diva. I know you’ll never stoop that low.” Lungster Ngelo Dee advised her to have her account verified,” another replied.
