Star of Jenifa, and recently divorced actress, Funke Akindele has disowned a fake facebook account which is being used by some imopstors to defraud unsuspecting individuals and fans.
Akindele made this ugly development known through her management company, Tofarati Ige of Entertainment Media Limited, during the week.
A statement made available to HVP reads thus: "The attention of the management of star actress, Funke Akindele, has been drawn to the fraudulent act by some criminals who had opened a fake Facebook account in her name to extort unsuspecting individuals and fans."
"The criminals had used Funke Akindele's name to open the account and demanded for payment from unsuspecting members of the public to participate in movie productions and promotional campaign with offers of a wide range of prizes including Laptops, TV sets and other consumer products."
"We wish to state that the actress, who has a genuine account, will not demand money from anyone to take part in her movie productions or to run her school. Bonafide students of the school pay only to the school's account and not her personal account."
