HOAX: Angel Locsin dies in car accident (+video)

This is to warn the public of a recent link baiting attempt, this time using the names of actress Angel Locsin and television network ABS-CBN.

The fake news headline used the phrase “Angel Locsin just died in car accident” and “ABS-CBN.com” as the supposed news source in order to lure unsuspecting netizens into clicking it.

Clickers would then be redirected elsewhere, to a site that has nothing to do with both entities.

Readers should be wary of the said news as it is a hoax. Hovering over the link, without clicking it, would uncover the real site where one is being led to.

The “Hot & Trending” YouTube channel also warned the public not to click the link.

The bogus ABS-CBN Facebook page is using the media company in spreading celebrity death hoaxes to lure curious and unsuspecting individuals to visit the page.

The most recent celebrity who became victim to the hoax is singer Yeng Constantino.

If you encounter fake news in your newsfeed, do not click the link as it might cause harm to your computer or device.
