Nadine Samonte slams fake blog using her name, photo to endorse product
Nadine Samonte slammed a fake blog that used her name and photo to endorse a product that claims to treat diabetes.
The actress also called the item, “Diaremedium,” a scam, as per her Instagram post on Wednesday, Sept. 2.
“Why???? First of all [I] [don’t] have [d]iabetes and [I] [don’t] have a blog!!!!!” Samonte stated.
She included screenshots of the blog as well, which featured posts that were supposedly written by her. The people behind the site posed as her as well when replying to questions on the page.
Samonte then told the blog to stop using her name and photos to promote their items.
“I [don’t] usually do this in social media pero (but) how many times this caught my attention,” she explained.
Samonte later noted that she already reached out to the blog about the issue but has not received a response. She then threatened to pursue legal action against the site if they refuse to take down the fake posts.
She also expressed her anger toward the site for fooling people. Samonte then tagged the Instagram pages of the said product, urging them to read and reply to her statement. /ra
