MANILA — Actress Liza Soberano on Wednesday took to social media to reveal that there have been offers from unknown parties to buy her and Enrique Gil's fan accounts.
"Saw that some random accounts are trying to buy some LizQuen fan accounts. Nice try but LizQuen can’t be bought. Mighty proud of all of you," Soberano tweeted.
After her revelation, the actress received messages of support from their fans, who stressed that their love and loyalty are not for sale.
Here are some of their reactions.
Prior to Soberano's revelation, the fan pages of Bea Alonzo and Angel Locsin also received offers to sell the accounts.
Alonzo on Sunday, July 19, shared screenshots from her supporters, showing similar messages asking them to sell the widely followed fan pages they manage.
Fans of Locsin had the same encounters, according to screenshots posted by the actress on Monday, July 20.
Buying a community page to promote an agenda, and in the process deceiving followers of the group's original content, is one of the schemes of "professional" trolls, according to tech news editor Art Samaniego.
Samaniego warned administrators to be vigilant not only of these offers, but also a "modus" where members seek administrator privileges who then kick out the original owner of the page.
