Celebrity Hong Seok-chun was scammed by voice phishing.

On March 26th, Hong wrote on his Instagram: “I got scammed through ‘smishing (sms phishing)’, which is a type of voice phishing.”

He continued, “While I was in Thailand filming something, a bro I know texted me. I was so busy I didn’t even call him and sent him several thousands of dollars. And I just realized it was voice phishing. If any of you receives something strange from me, please ignore because my phone probably got hacked.”

Lastly he said, “I need to change my phone. I hope none of you gets scammed like me.”
