PAIGE SPIRANAC has revealed how a fan accused her of scamming him out of $10,000 – leaving her frightened to leave the house.The golf beauty, 29, has recently seen her exposure skyrocket after Maxim named her the ‘Sexiest Woman Alive’.Spiranac wowed on the red carpet this weekend as she turned up for the magazine’s ‘Hot 100’ party in a bra and leggings combo.
But away from the glamour, she revealed on her podcast Playing A Round how a recent interaction with an “unhinged” fan has left her fearing for her safety.And the trauma of the event has left Paige scared to even leave the house.Spiranac was approached by a man at a recent charity golf event who claimed she had conned him out of $10,000.Paige explained: “He comes up and asks me for a picture, it’s fine at first.
“And then he goes into how I scammed him out of $10,000 and he started threatening me.”It was a really really scary situation.”As it turns out, this man was scammed by a fake profile that someone created and it had a fake number, he was unhinged.”I’ve been dealing with these security issues for a while and they have been increasingly worse in the last couple of months.”A former golf pro, Paige has slowly built a huge online following and currently boasts 3.5m Instagram followers.
She’s revealed in the past how scammers have been using her image to trick people into giving money to fake profiles.And one impostor even set up an OnlyFans profile in her name – and even posted fake nude pictures.Spiranac is now afraid to leave the house, claiming she is living in a “bubble”.She continued: “I’ve just been feeling really scared.”I don’t really leave my place much, I don’t go out.
“I am just starting to feel like I am living in this bubble, and it’s something I’ve never truly experienced before.”I don’t know who’s out there, who’s following me, who’s stalking me.”I know a lot of people go, ‘well that comes with the territory of your job’. No, it shouldn’t.”Spiranac recently took to Twitter to congratulate Cameron Smith – and herself – after the Australian’s dramatic victory in The Open.She was especially pleased with Smith’s “historic win” as she tipped him to come out on top on Thursday.While the former pro showed she still has the skills by crashing a 300-yard drive down the Old Course fairway.
