Beware of scammers impersonating Australian comedians on social media

In the digital age of misinformation, identity theft and scams, online criminals have increasingly begun targeting the fans of celebrities on social media.

In recent times, we are seeing scammers setting up accounts in the names of Australian comedians (and others) and responding to DMs and comments with requests for donations to fake charities, financial information and other personal details.

Please be rest assured that no comedian or public figure would ever ask or attempt to solicit such things from you via social media.

If you come across or are engaged by an account that appears to be fraudulent, please email [email protected] and we can pass on the details to the relevant parties and law enforcement.
