Rumors of the model’s alleged demise gained traction on Tuesday after a ‘R.I.P. Melissa Loza’ Facebook page attracted nearly one million of ‘likes’. Those who read the ‘About’ page were given a believable account of the Peruvian model’s passing:

Where as some trusting fans believed the post, others were immediately skeptical of the report, perhaps learning their lesson from the huge amount of fake death reports emerging about celebrities over recent months. Some pointed out that the news had not been carried on any major Peruvian network, indicating that it was a fake report, as the death of a model of Melissa Loza's stature would be major news across networks.

A recent poll conducted for the Celebrity Post shows that a large majority (74%) of respondents think those Melissa Loza death rumors are not funny anymore.
