The site that started the claim of Claudine’s death looked like but came out fake even though it was using the abs-cbn’s themes. It used some links from the posts connecting to rogue Facebook apps in which the spectators has to request permission to access users’ profile information. By allowing them to access their profile, the post would automatically come out in their timelines. This helped the scam reproduce unexpectedly over the net.

This might sound depressing to the Barretto family, but the good thing is, Thank God it was just a hoax. The one responsible for this may actually have a purpose of entertaining the public but it just doesn't sound entertaining at all or may want to earn by producing such ill-way of scamming.
