Description
Someone created fake Facebook profiles of two well known female celebrities in Pakistan. One of them is a renowned singer and the other is famous TV actress. Both are not tech savvy. Interestingly, both never used Facebook and never created their profiles on social networking sites. This fake person, who created these profiles was using their names to recruit young girls as models for dubious events and inviting them for fake jobs. There was danger that he could commit some serious crime against these young innocent girls, who would approach him for work in the name of these famous celebrities.

This case was reported to Bytes for All, Pakistan by a renowned Women Rights Activist and journalist in Karachi. Knowing the seriousness of the issue, Bytes for All immediately reached out to the Policy Head of Facebook explaining the whole issue with necessary documentation.

Thankfully, both these profiles were deleted immediately by the Facebook. We now have requested these celebrities to open their own official web pages so opportunists do not use their name and cause problems in future for innocent girls in the country.
