Trevor Gumbi has taken to social media to share that hackers tried to hack his Instagram account on Wednesday night. The comedian first shared a screenshot of the direct messages (DM) he received from an "Instagram admin" who told him they've locked his account.
The actor asked his friends and followers if the DM really came from the IG team or if it was just hackers. The star wrote:
"Do you guys think this is REALLY IG reaching out to me or is it the hacker? I’m conflicted. I’m so trusting."
His fans told Trevor that this is a scam and that the message was fake. A few hours later, Trevor posted that the hacker managed to change his password but needs the verification code to gain control of his account.
"The hacker changed my password but needs the two step verification code to gain control. For now I still control this page #They tried it."
After a few hours, Trevor shared a snap of himself sleeping while holding a hammer. He captioned the post:
"With all the hacking going on, this is how I slept when sleep actually came to me at 4am #DontLetThemCatchYouSleeping."
