Former KARA Member Park Gyuri Warns About Scam Using Her Name And Information

Former KARA member Park Gyuri has warned people against a “messenger phishing” scam that is using her name and personal information.

“Phishing” refers to fraud that attempts to get personal or financial information out of people by pretending to be a legitimate source. These scams can occur via phone call, messenger app, text, or more.

On September 8, Park Gyuri posted on Instagram, “There’s a person who hacked my information and is messenger phishing while pretending to be me. I can’t get this out to all my contacts in time, so I’m going to upload this for a moment and then delete it. If there’s someone in my acquaintance who has been contacted like this, please report it. I checked the ID on another site and got an IP address I didn’t know from another neighborhood, so I’m checking that out as well. Please be careful.”

In the post, she shared several screenshots of a KakaoTalk conversation between her mother and the scammer. The scammer is pretending to be her daughter while asking her to send money to their account.
