Hackers threaten to take over comedian’s Instagram account
Popular comedian Oga Obinna has exposed con men who have reached out, threatening to take over his Instagram account.
According to a screenshot shared online the hackers reached out to Obinna via his Whatsapp, asking him to fill a certain form to secure his account.
“Hi Oga Obinna, your account will be permanently deleted from our servers within 24 hours unless you provide feedback. If you think we will accidentally remove your account, click the link and fill in the next required field,” read the screenshot
The comedian called out the hackers saying that he felt that it was a scam the moment Instagram reached out to him via whatsapp.
“Sounds like bullcrap to me. Hackers Alert! Instagram Support contacting me through WhatsApp lol” he wrote
Celebrities have found themselves being victims to hackers with many of them losing control of what is shared on their pages.
In 2018 Ugandan socialite and Businesswoman Zari Hassan’s Instagram was hacked with the hackers adding a link to her bio demanding Sh400, 0000 to give back her account with at 4.2 million followers.
The hacker also went ahead to share photos of Zari’s then rival Hamisa Mobetto and her daughter and those of her estranged baby daddy, Diamond Platnumz. They also uploaded pornographic images, which were later on deleted.
