Sports executive, president and owner of the NBA team, Los Angeles Lakers, Jeanie Buss has announced that her twitter handle has been hacked.
The verified Jeanie Buss twitter account with more than 400k followers, was hacked by cyber criminals for obvious reasons.
Soon after the hackers got hold of the account, they advertised three PS5 game consoles to Buss’ followers. They went further to say profits made from the sales would go into charity, and that anyone who purchase the product, will attend a lakers game for free.
“Lakers Fans, my Twitter account has been hacked. Please do not engage with it or send any money. These are NOT legitimate offers. The Lakers will alert you when I am back in control of my account,” Jeanie Buss said in a statement.
Meanwhile, at the time of filing this report, the tweet made by the hackers have been deleted. This, many believe could be an indication that the account has been recovered.
