Kris Bernal revealed that she has fallen prey to a scammer who made several fake food delivery bookings in her name and had them delivered to her home.

The actress detailed her experience by showing a video of the delivery riders who came to her residence, through her Instagram page on Saturday, July 3. She initially said she received 18 bogus bookings, but the number rose to 23 after several more riders came with deliveries later that night.

“A total of 23 GrabFood deliveries all from the same name, Jen Jen Manalo. Sadly the amount of the deliveries [is no joke],” Bernal said, asking her fans to help her report the culprit. She threatened to sue Manalo as she said she felt bad for the delivery riders who had to take several orders.

“I’m not the only victim here but also the [riders] na nag-seserbisyo lamang (who are just doing their jobs) and went all the way here to deliver several orders,” she told her fans. “[To whoever] did this, I can sue you. Harapin mo ako, maawa ka sa mga tao (Face me, take pity on other people.)”

The actress, also through her Instagram page on Saturday, included a video of a phone conversation between one of the delivery riders and Manalo, who claimed that someone ordered from her in the actress’ name.

“Pakisabi diyan kay Kris Bernal, tingnan niya ‘yung Messenger niya. May umorder lang din sa’kin at dalhin daw sa bahay nila,” she said. (Tell Kris Bernal to check her Messenger. Someone just ordered from me and said to bring it to her house.)

Bernal stressed that she does not think she has offended anyone for this incident to happen, noting that she has no idea as to who was making the delivery bookings.

According to Bernal, this is not the first time Manalo had used her name in making fake purchases. She claimed that the netizen had also pretended to be her assistant and asked for free services from products that the actress promoted.

“I’ll never ask someone to order for me. I’ll order and buy it personally. It’s the same voice, same names used, but different number,” she said showing a photo of a conversation she had with a small business owner.
