Fake Dierks Bentley Twitter Account Scams Woman Out Of $160,000

I just don’t understand how this keeps happening…

According to The Herald, the most recent celebrity social media scam costed a South Carolina woman $160,000. The woman told police that her sister sent cashier’s checks and gift cards to a person claiming to be Dierks Bentley after they began talking over Twitter.

I have so many questions….

160 THOUSAND DOLLARS? Who even has that kind of money just laying around to give to a fake Dierks Bentley? How can someone so dumb, be smart enough to have that much money? It’s insane. @DierksBentley238230045 with 11 followers isn’t the real Dierks Bentley and no major music star ever needs your money. It should go without saying…

Earlier this year, country music released a PSA reminding fans to look for the blue check mark and not to fall for these imposters. However, I think Blake Shelton said it best…

“Never give out your private information, if you do, you’re fucking dumb.”
