“This is a viral link that will take you to a site that looks like a spoof YouTube. Wherever a page similar to Messenger appears, it is stated that the video will not be displayed unless you log in. By sharing the post ‘Don’t fall into this trap,” she stated.

The Marathi actor warned her fans to be cautious. On social media, a honey trap link is being discussed, which is used to extort money from people.

In recent years, there has been an increase in the number of cases of social media fraud and cybercrime. Fraud is frequently committed by misusing the name, sending incorrect messages, and hacking accounts. Thus, it becomes important to stay alert and practice caution.
