23 Jan – Luis Manzano recently warned fans of the existence of a fake Twitter account using his mother's name and photo to scam fans.

As reported on Inquirer, it was a fan account for Manzano himself that originally informed netizens about the account using the handle VilmaSRecto, saying that it does not belong to the veteran star.

"Please don't be fooled. This account is a poser. Congresswoman Vilma Santos Recto does NOT have Twitter account. Please help us report [the account]," the fan account posted.

On 16 January, Manzano also took to social media to warn fans of the said account, writing, "Please report this fake account spreading fake news and harassing people."

On the other hand, the actress-turned-politician herself stressed on Instagram that she does not have a Twitter account, writing, "This is a fake account". Aside from Instagram, Santos communicates with her fans through Facebook.

The mother and son duo are currently busy doing volunteer work to help the victims of the Taal Volcano eruption.
