GMA News issued a public advisory to warn the public about a fake news site that tried to imitate their website URL.

“False news is being circulated online under a URL that resembles GMA News Online’s,” GMA News wrote.

“Please be advised that the only links/URLs being used by GMA News are gmanetwork.com, gmanetwork.com/news, and gmanews.tv,” it added.

GMA News was referring to the fake news site gma-tv.com, which even unashamedly uses GMA News Online’s logo.
