- Sophie Lichaba's social media account got hacked and her name was used to promote fake products and investments.
- The first was a Bitcoin scam and the other was a fake anti-aging face cream.
- She was so sick and tired of it that she took to social media to give the haters a piece of her mind.
It is so sad to see how many people are attacking celebrities over social media. Haters and trolls are making celebs think twice before sharing their lives with the public.
Social media makes it very easy for people to make assumptions on situations without knowing the full story. It has also made it extremely easy to steal people identities.
Sophie Lichaba, talented actress and business woman, has recently found herself in a multitude of social media scams.
Briefly.co.za learnt that the first was a made-up Bitcoin investment scam and the other a fake anti-aging cream. Both these items have been linked directly to her name and she has had to deal with the wrath of unpleased customers/investors.
Taking to the scene of the crime, Sophie had her say about the people that were tarnishing her name with fake things.
The actress expressed how tired she was of it all and that she understands the risks of social media, “but this is too much”.
Sophie stated that the Bitcoin saga started after her Facebook account was hacked. After this, she posted to her account, the story behind all the Bitcoin scams, but the article was removed.
Completely fake accounts were made in her name and they were identical to her actual social media accounts. Sophie was never even associated or interested in Bitcoin in anyway.
The whole fake anti-aging face cream was just another way that her name, face and identity was used to scam innocent people out of money.
Sophie expressed her deep frustration with all of this and pleaded that people leave her name out of things that she is not associated with.
No is it only extremely cruel, it is a criminal offence to use a person’s identity without their consent. Especially when you are implicating their reputation.
