Brenda said she was on set when a guard told her an unknown man was waiting for her at the gate.
“Apparently the scammer told this guy I’m a forex trader and he had money to invest for him. Fortunately, the guard had the guy’s phone. He showed me the messages. I asked the guard to tell him he was being scammed and went back to my work. I am hurt.”
Brenda told Daily Sun she hadn’t opened a case yet.
