Reba McEntire is the latest country celebrity to take to social media to warn fans about fake accounts. It’s easy to use a celebrities name and try and get money from fans who adore that celebrity, but artists like Reba want to warn you not to fall for these requests.

“Hey guys, I need to talk to you something that Justin McIntosh (Vice President of Creative & Marketing for Reba) wanted me to remind you about. We need to be a little more careful on social media. And he asked me to say that my only official social media profiles—they have a blue check mark on it, beside my name. And I will never send you a direct message asking for any of your personal information or a request for money. Also, nobody from my team will ever do that. So if you do get an email or any kind of social media stuff like this report it.
