Metro Manila (CNN Philippines, September 23)— Actress Kris Bernal on Sunday warned her social media followers to refrain from entertaining messages from her accounts, after they were hacked by a “suspicious” group from Turkey.

In a vlog posted on her official YouTube channel, the 30-year-old actress and entrepreneur revealed that an unknown group hacked all of her online accounts, including Facebook, Twitter, Instagram, and email, over the weekend.

Bernal, who turned emotional while filming the clip, said the hackers even tried to call her, and asked her to pay $750 in exchange for her accounts’ retrieval.

“If they are asking money from you, kindly block and report the numbers calling you. Please report to Instagram that my account has been hacked,” she said. “I have followed all the process to retrieve but I still can't.”

Bernal’s accounts have yet to be fully retrieved as of early evening Monday. The actress is best known for her stint in reality-based talent search television competition “Starstruck”, where she emerged as the winner.
