In her latest Facebook post, the actress has posted the chat details between the fraudster operating the fake account and another person who came forward to help the actress. Anubha said the matter came to light after the person mailed her seeking her account number.

Saying that the incident would tarnish her image, the actress urged people not to trust anyone or share any information or lend monetary help by trusting such fraudsters through internet.
