Vice Ganda warns public about people pretending to be in her team: 'Wag magpapa-scam'

Vice Ganda warned the public about scammers who claim to be a part of her team and ask for collaborations.

In a Facebook post on Jan. 27, Vice shared a screenshot of a message from someone introducing themself as “Peach” of “Team Vice Ganda.” The sender is inviting the receiver “to do a collaboration on Ms. Vice Ganda YouTube channel this coming Saturday.”

“I’ll send you the address of the venue and wear unkabogable outfit,” the sender added.

The comedian then gave her followers a strict reminder.

“‘WAG MAGPAPA-SCAM,” she said with an X mark emoji. “‘Wag agad magpapaniwala sa mga ganitong messages!”

Vice said there’s no “Peach” in her team, and if ever someone would reach out for projects, it would only be from Team Vice’s official accounts on X, Instagram, and TikTok. She also shared the handles of the official accounts.

Recently, Heart Evangelista sent out a warning to brands and her social media followers, reminding them that Alice Talents Agency and Directions Group Inc. are the only PR agencies authorized to represent her for international business transactions.

"If there’s a party that says ‘she cannot make it,’ kindly confirm with me or my representatives. Thank you so much," she wrote on her Instagram stories.

Actor Eric Quizon was also victimized after his photos were being used in a Facebook group “Dating in USA,” which has over 400,000 members.

The one using Quizon’s photos claims to be from “Manila Albay” and lives in New York.

Quizon doesn’t have Facebook or X, only Instagram.
