The top Nollywood stars, Destiny Etiko, Uche Jombo, and Chinyere Wilfred, blasted a loud alarm bell that roused fans and colleagues.
Regarding Patience Ozokwo, a respected cinema veteran, they raised a red flag of caution.
Patience Ozokwo’s WhatsApp number had been hacked, according to Destiny Etiko, who raised the alarm on her Instagram page like a town crier in the virtual square.
She revealed a number of texts she had sent asking for help with money, saying she was about to give a sizeable $200,000 to these fraudsters. But in a cunning act of doubt, she insisted they provide a voice message to confirm it was really Patience Ozokwo.
Destiny made it crystal clear that the esteemed actress had never made such appeals in the past. She cautioned colleagues and fans to be careful and stay guided.
Destiny Etiko wrote;
“Pls be careful o Mama’s watsap got hacked @patienceozokwo l almost sent 200k to them o But decided to tell the guy to send me a voice note to confirm cos MAMA has never told me such b4 and the person stopped chatting me Pls let us be guided”
Uche Jombo, who is not one to keep quiet, took to her comment area and disclosed that she too had been the object of a sizable 300k demand. She didn’t stop there; she continued on to her Instagram story, where she posted the same message with the same payment request that she had got from the sly hacker.
Not wanting to miss out on this online battle, Chinyere Wilfred posted a warning on her Instagram profile to warn her coworkers to be on the lookout for these hackers.
