There was some unusual activity on Sofia Vergara’s Instagram today, and fans were quick to notice. It all started when one post supposedly coming from the actress announced that she was giving away no less than 1000 iPhone Xs!
‘Hello, guys! I am giving away 1000 FREE iPhone X’s and Apple watches on my Instagram stories right now!!! Claim them before it’s too late! Gracias, Te Amo,’ the message read.
Soon, followers started warning Vergara that there was something going on with her account, suspecting that she had been hacked.
Fans urged her on Twitter to check it out as soon as possible as they were pretty sure she didn’t have so many phones to spare.
Sure enough, a rep of the beauty, later confirmed for E! News that she had, indeed, been hacked.
Vergara also took to her Twitter to warn her followers not to share their personal info with the hackers: ‘Guys my Instagram got hacked. Don’t answer those idiots. Don’t send them any info. we r after them.’
This is definitely not the first time that a star gets a social media account of theirs hacked.
It is pretty scary knowing someone with bad intentions might be hiding behind the face of a celebrity you love and trust and then get you to share bank details and other personal information.
Thankfully, Sofia’s fans were not fooled, and the Modern Family actress was not affected too much either.
Later, she posted a pic with her hubby Joe Manganiello on vacation together, proving the hacking job did not manage to ruin her great mood at all.
