Imagine your favorite celebrity reaching out to you on social media. At first you're thrilled, but this brush with greatness can soon take a sinister turn. One that is costing people millions of dollars.
I've seen this happen with a few different country artists. Someone poses as the artist and begins messaging fans of that artist on social media sites like Facebook and Twitter. They begin a fake relationship with the fan, and the next thing you know... They're asking for money.
It's heartbreaking to see vulnerable people taken advantage of. Please remember if anyone messages you saying they are an artist or celebrity, DO NOT BELIEVE THEM! REPORT THEM IMMEDIATELY.
