Daniel O’Donnell has warned fans of a fraudster impersonating him on WhatsApp. The person in question is asking for bogus charity donations in a bid to extort money from them.
The pride of Donegal told his fans to watch out for the bogus requests for donations. The country singer’s management company says its contacted all fan club members about the scam.
KCP Management, which represents Mr O’Donnell, said: “to the best of our knowledge, no one was conned”.
Daniel revealed in his message that he “never messages fans on WhatsApp” and that he never uses Facebook messenger to contact fans.
“Anyone who gets a message from this rogue Daniel needs to report it immediately through WhatsApp – as there is an option to do so – to block this person,”
The country music star has previously had to warn fans about a fake Daniel O’Donnell Facebook page.
He told fans last August in a post on his official fan page to report any friend requests.
“Hello friends. It has come to our attention that some of our fans have been receiving friend requests from a false Daniel O’Donnell profile that looks exactly like this official page,”.
“This is a fake profile and if you receive a friend request, please report it and delete it immediately.”
