Cayetana Guillén Cuervo has been a victim of cyber fraud, since, as she herself admitted during a live broadcast on Morning of the First, a gang of computer criminals were posing as her identity on social networks, they entered her phone and sent a message on her behalf to all of her faces. Contacts on Instagram. In addition, he was subjected to extortion in order to recover his account.
The main character of the “Ministry of Time” spent 72 very difficult hours, which began when received a private message on Instagram from one of your contacts, his personal friend Eugenio Recuenko. In this post, the alleged Eugenio – who was in fact the hackers – warned him that the copyright on the social network was violated, and in order to maintain his official account, he must “click” on the link. Caetana, believing that her verified account will be deleted after 24 hours if she does not accept the terms, and thinking that it is something safe, she followed this link and at that moment cybercriminals are automatically logged into your phone and Instagram account, sending the message she previously received to all her contacts on the specified social network
The actress with her hacked social networks was also extorted by criminals, to whom she, of course, did not succumb to blackmail. Hema Cuervo’s daughter just told how realizing the importance of his actions and his words as a public figure that he is, And fearing that the hackers would say something on his behalf – indeed, from his own verified Instagram account – he quickly turned to the judicial police, who are already investigating the matter.
Much calmer, Caetana said that after the extortion, she went to the police station to file a complaint, for which the police thanked her very much, because, without complaints, there will be no funds to investigate these cybercrimes, which are much more common than we think.
Police say it is a Turkish-based criminal organization that they have been following since March. A very well organized network dedicated to hacking verified Instagram accounts owned by public figures with the aim of steal their accounts, extort them and then sell those accounts… The money raised from the blackmail goes to the fund to fight organized crime and terrorism, the actress assured.
Fortunately, despite the fact that she felt “sold” and “scared” because a criminal with bad intentions hijacked her Instagram account and spent a very bad 72 hours, during which she warned the entire Spanish cinema that it was not she who sent messages, but the criminal organization that changed his identity, everything was a nightmare for the Cayetana which is now fighting to catch these cybercriminals.
