There has been a rise in online scammers trying to impersonate artists on social media with the intention of defrauding fans out of money. Share this or bring it up at Thanksgiving as a perfect conversation diversion or segue. Promoting it could possibly lead to more scammers but what’s more important is telling your elders about this. I personally know of someone’s mom who was targeted with a scammer pretending to be an artist asking for money…and the mom went as far as going to Western Union!
It’s the holiday season and this type of fraud will only increase, so wether you tell them or tag them in Bryan Adam’s FB post, make sure to let them know to not reply to anyone claiming to be someone if they have an unverified account without a blue check on it. Then tell them to report the account because there is a 100% chance that this is not the real artist.
Especially share this if you love your Rock & Roll mom, grandma or aunt. Obviously, these scammers reach out to all types of people but it’s just extra sad when they mess with the matriarchy.
