Actress and comedienne Pokwang warned fans about an illegal recruiter allegedly using her name. The recruiter is promising potential recruits that they will be part of Pokwang’s entourage in Toronto, Canada in April next year, the actress said.

The comedienne minced no words and threatened the alleged recruiter that she will reveal the latter’s identity to the public soon, as stated in her Instagram post yesterday, Nov. 30.


“WARNING!!! Wag nyo gamitin ang pangalan ko at palalabasin nyo na kasama sa entourage ko ang mga taong ipapasok nyo sa Toronto Canada sa darating na April!!!” she said. “Malinaw na illegal recruitment yan!! Meron akong video ng taong ito at napakalinaw sa video na binanggit nya ang name ko na kunwari palalabasin nyo na kasama sa entourage ko ang na recruit nyo na kawawa naman magbabayad sa inyo???”

(Warning! Do not use my name and make it seem like your recruits would be part of my entourage in Toronto, Canada in April. It is clear: that is illegal recruitment! I have a video clearly showing this recruiter using my name, fooling recruits that they would be part of my entourage.)


“Malapit kana sumikat wait lang ha!! Baka may mga kamag anak kayo na nag a apply ng student vissa (sic) sa canada wag kayong maniwala soon ilalabas ko video ng mga taong ito!! (You will be famous soon, just you wait! Maybe you guys have relatives applying for student visas for Canada, [warn them to] do not believe these people, I will release their video soon!)” she added.

The alleged illegal recruiter’s face was covered with angry face emoji by Pokwang in her post, hiding the scammer’s identity for the meantime.

A clearly frustrated Pokwang told those who are part of the recruitment sham to not involve her in their operations, because unlike them, she is earning honest money for her family.

“‘Wag nyong gamitin name ko utang na loob! malinis akong naghahanap buhay para sa pamilya ko wag nyo akong idamay!!! Mga P%#tang ina nyo!!!” she said.

(Do not use my name, for God’s sake! I have a proper job earning honest buck for my family, so do not involve me in this! You sons of b*tches!)

“Tigilan nyo yan meron akong video nyo na isang kaibigan ang nag forward sakin at concern!! at muntik nyo na sya mabiktima na hayop ka ang tanda mona manggagancho ka [pa] hayop ka!!” she added.

(You better leave me alone, I have a video of you guys sent to me by a concerned friend! And you almost deceived her, bastard. You are already old yet you are still a scammer, you animal!)


While Pokwang has not yet revealed the alleged illegal recruiter’s identity to the public as of writing, her fans assured her of support and some pledged to report the scammer to the authorities. JB
