Pormal nang naghain ng kasong Identity Theft ang aktres na si Nadia Montenegro laban sa parody account sa Twitter na @nadsmontengero.
Nag-file si Nadia sa Camp Crame, sa Cyber Crime Unit ng Philippine National Police noong Lunes, May 16.
Sabi pa niya, “You can also file with NBI [National Bureau of Investigation].
“Myrtle [Sarrosa] filed with NBI same with Robin [Padilla]. I filed Identity Theft, Cyber Crime law.”
Sa panayam ng PEP.ph (Philippine Entertainment Portal) at Cinema News noong Miyerkules, May 18, ikinuwento ni Nadia na matagal na siyang may poser pero hindi lang daw nagkaroon ng pagkakataon noon na mahuli at maparusahan ito.
“This started five years ago, in the beginning, grabe na rin yung mga tirade.
“Nung time na yun, may problema kami na may korte-korte pa.
“Ang dami nang mga lumabas na mga accounts; like @nads montenegro with an s, may @nadzmontenegro with a Z.
“Iba-iba talaga, bashing all the artists... unang-una, bashing me.
“Not even bashing me but pretending to be me and me saying nasty things about me.
“For five years I’ve been trying to do everything to report the account but no luck.
“Then last year, nabuhay na naman siya nung nagkaroon ng controversy ang INC [Iglesia ni Cristo], sumali siya.
“I found myself at the end of the tunnel, asking for pasensiya sa mga kapatid na INC na nagagalit sa akin, thinking na ako yun.
“Dun ko naman nakita na talagang picture ko, grab picture from my Facebook account, yung family ko talagang nandun.
“If I was somebody who has another account, I would think it was really me because even the name was mine.
“Lumala na lang itong last week nga, nung ang tindi na ng mga tirada sa presumptive President natin, Mayor Duterte.
“All this time kasi, I’ve been quiet about election, even my social media.
“If you know me and follow me, ang social media ko ngayon is to promote Tubig at Langis or Kusina ni Nadia, it’s all positive.
“It’s been two to three years… I use it for friends, family, good vibes.
“Itong last week lang talaga ang matindi, to the point na ang dami ko ng private messages na natatanggap.
“Threats na, ‘Wag kang lalabas ng bahay.’ I have to take it seriously, too much na.”
A WARNING. Bago si Nadia ay nagreklamo rin si Melai Contiveros laban sa mga bashers.
Sumunod naman ay sina Robin at Myrtle, na katulad ni Nadia ay nag-file na rin ng kaso laban sa kanilang bashers at hackers.
May ilang nagsasabi na mahirap mahuli ang mga taong gumagawa ng mga ito dahil puwede nilang i-deny at palabasing na-hack at may gumamit lang ng kanilang accounts.
Ayon naman kay Nadia, may paraan ang mga awtoridad para mahuli ang talagang may mga sala.
“This is important to all social media users.
“When you have Facebook account, Instagram account or Twitter account, you really, really have to take responsibility.
“There are laws and guidelines… just because it’s your account in your name does not give you the right, it is not hundred percent right.
“Maa-identify ka talaga, there are ways. This is also a warning.”
Ano sa tingin niya ang motibo ng nasabing nagmamay-ari ng parody account?
Sagot ni Nadia, “I know this person is not out there to bash or to hit on someone else but to really ruin my credibility, my name and my friendships.
“Ang daming artista tumatawag, ‘Ikaw ba talaga ito?’
“Sabi ko, ‘Bakit ko naman gagawin ‘yan?’
“Those who know me know it’s not me, but there are millions who don’t know me.”
WHY ME? May idea ba siya kung sino ang nasa likod nito?
“Hindi pa, but we have an idea.
“This is not just one person, maraming accounts ‘yan.
“Maraming nakakaawang dapat nating ipagdasal.
“With the help of the team na pinapa-investigate namin and all, we kind of have an idea na this is not just one person.
“When this account @Nadsmontenegro was deleted, amazingly Saturday morning nakapagbukas agad siya ng panibago.
“In few hours, mayroon kaagad siyang 4,000 followers.
“And then again, this account was deleted again, this account was suspended.
“The next morning, iba na, Nadzi Tabsi na and 16,000 followers na.
“I think this person has been keeping a lot of accounts in social media and just keeps changing the names.
“Galit sa akin ito, wala akong makitang ibang rason.
“Kasi I don’t think one person will wake up one day and then, 'A ito si Nadia Montengero ang gamitin ko.'
“Bakit ako naman? May galit ito definitely.
“I don’t wish it on other artists, but if you will do something as evil as this, gamitin mo na yung mga tao na mas kilala.
“Pero bakit ako? Ang daming artista na naha-hack na ngayon.
“Iba-iba, e, may hackers, may bashers, but mine is identity theft.
“This person is pretending to be me and has been ruining my name, collecting enemies every day by the thousands.
“This is something I can’t live with.”
CHANGE IS COMING. May mensahe ring iniwan si Nadia para sa kanyang parody account user.
“Alam mo, I’m not mad at you anymore because you’ve done so much damage already.
“My anger will not help the situation, I will just continue to pray for you because you really need prayers.
“You must really have been going through so much.
“The words that you use, the lingo, the things that you wish... you wish for people to die.
“Nakakaawa ka, you will not find happiness pretending to be somebody else.
“And you will not find true happiness if all you do is evil stuff.
“Hanapin mo ang Diyos, mas masarap ang buhay na ang Diyos ang kasama mo.
“To those who are just trying to create havoc and doing evil things, just stop.
“Please stop the hit on social media.
“Facebook was created by [Mark] Zuckerberg to find friends, find their lost friends, to make friends.
“Let’s be more responsible naman as citizens, wag nating isisi sa ibang tao, gobyerno, sa president.
“You need to change, we need to change, I need to change, we all have our responsibility being citizen of this country.
“Social media is a big world out there.
“Sa mga magulang din, watch your children kasi nakakagulat, magugulat kayo.
“The account holders are 18 and below, biggest percentage, mas marami.”
