SCAM ALERT: Beware of Celebrity Imposter Scams

Do you follow your favorite celebrities on Facebook, Twitter, and Instagram? If you receive a direct message from one of them out of the blue, it’s almost certainly a scam. Imposters will reach out to the real celebrity’s followers and ask them to donate to a charity or buy tickets to a private concert. Look for the blue checkmark on celebrity social media accounts, which verifies that they’re the real deal.
