Over the past few months, we’ve seen scammers make an attempt to either hack into social media accounts of idols or even impersonate them on messenger services.
While none of them managed to succeed in getting what they wanted, one of our beloved K-Pop idols has fallen victim recently. Luna of f(x) uploaded screenshots on Instagram of a KakaoTalk conversation that took place between her mother and a scammer who was impersonating her.
The conversation above shows that the scammer pretended to be Luna and asked her mother to transfer money.
Naturally, Luna was upset over the incident and even blamed herself for being unable to answer her mother’s call that day. She took to Instagram to raise awareness over scammers and stated
“To you people who steal from those who have worked hard, have you no conscience? Are you happy after making money that way?”
