Duane Chapman, aka Dog the Bounty Hunter, is warning people that social media scammers are at work soliciting money from fans online by posing as him. The cry for money started occurring after his wife, Beth Chapman, passed away and the scammers are claiming that "Duane" needs financial help following her death. These posts are obviously false and his official Facebook addressed the situation yesterday.
"The media team is overwhelmed with removing fake accounts. I am hearing some people have sent as much as $5,000. You do not have to send these to me to verify this for you. When you see them REPORT THEM. ALL OF THEM."
So this is your official warning! Do NOT send money to any Duane Chapman accounts as they are fake!
