Beware of Fake Tyler Perry Facebook Pages Created by Scammers

Beware of fake Tyler Perry Facebook pages created by scammers to encourage Facebook users to "like," share or comment on them. Facebook users who follow the instructions in the posts on the fake Tyler Perry Facebook pages, run the risk of, scammers collecting and using their publicly available Facebook information in scams, or being placed on spamming lists.

Please continue below.

One of the Fake Tyler Perry Facebook Pages

Fake Tyler Perry Facebook Page

The legitimate Tyler Perry Facebook page is located at:

To tell if a celebrity's Facebook page is authentic or not fake, Facebook users should look out for a blue tick or check mark right next to the profile name and move their mouse over it. If the following message is displayed, it means Facebook has verified that the page is authentic: "Verified Page - Facebook confirmed this is an authentic Page for this public figure, media company or brand."

This collecting of information by scammers is another like-farming, data mining or information-mining scam that we have seen before, which collects Facebook users' publicly available information for scammers and spammers. Once scammers have gotten a hold of the information, they will use it to make their scams more convincing to their potential victims, by referring to them by their names and providing them with information that they think only people that they know, would know.

For the spammers, users’ information is like gold. They will continuously send unsolicited messages and emails to their victims. So, Facebook users should be careful of what they like, share and comment on. Facebook users, who have already liked, commented on, or shared similar posts, can opt out by clicking here for instructions.

    Yes, I thought I was talking to them Perry myself on messenger it too, ask me if I was a child of the lord I said I have always been a child of the lord.

    I would get messages once a day asking me questions about my life. I told whoever it was that I have a hard time getting by, but I still help other people. Then I was told when I was in church last night the Lord told me to bless 5 of my true fans and give them 25000 dollars then I was so excited till one of my coworkers got the same message.

    Then I got a message for my information, like a dummy I give my address phone number then I get another message that I would be contacted and would have to choose western union or money gram. Then I thought I've told this person that I have had a bad like and I'm trying to find my path to get out of abuse.

    And, I thought to myself surely this a miracle I was heartbroken and wanted a place to live close to my job so I could walk back and forth to work and would never have to worry about being mistreated anymore. That, someone, was going to help me but when I wrote back and told them that really wasn't asking I just wanted a friend and someone to talk to cause his plays and movies are my life. I didn't hear back so we will see. But, I don't think Tyler Perry would ask poor people for money. It just upset me cause I'm lucky if I get to eat every day; just broke my heart to know someone is out there using this good man's name to take from the poor.

    Just also got a message from Tyler Perry saying he is going to give me $13,000 from his oil Crude company in Africa. This is so fake! For a minute I thought I was really talking to Tyler Perry until he started asking me if I have credit card accounts.

    I'm dealing with this right now. On two different occasions about two weeks apart. Got a friend request from supposedly Tyler Perry telling me they want my name and information. They say that if I do that I will receive 10,000.00 dollars!! I went along with that for awhile but then said no thanks when it came to giving out my information!!

    I just blocked a fake Tyler Perry page, it had tour picture on it so i thought it was real and he started out saying god bless you and then he started asking question about am I married. He asked my age, I lied and said I was 21 and he said ok but then i told him i had a sister who was 10yrs old and he said he had a god fearing man who wanted to meet me so then i asked him who he wanted to marry and he said he didnt know and i blocked him and i called the police. I think it was a child predator. I just wanted to let you know this. I thought you should know.

          Just ignore them and do not give them your password. If you have, change it immediately. The real Tyler Perry would never ask for your password.
