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.

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.

    I have submitted quite a few reports on Tyler Perry fake posts in the past couple of days. I was glad to see this post.

    Now maybe people will quit being so gullible. I was sick of seeing them. People will fall for any thing on facebook!

    I've seen many of these as well. There is a website in the sweepstakes niche full of fraud that started a little over 1 year ago. I think some of these fake spam messages are their "test" campaigns because right after the flood of these messages, their page will run something very very similar.

    What benefit would ANY person receive spending a huge amount of money on a campiagn, that will be shut down within weeks.

    You say "they will collect your personal information available on Facebook", but this is not true.

    A Facebook page does not receive any personal information, let alone anything at all when you "like" their page or posts.

  • July 7, 2018 at 5:49 PM by an anonymous user from: Durham, North Carolina, United States

    I have reported these fake pages over and over but fb does nothing. Friends keep sharing the garbage. I wonder why reporting them doesn’t get them shut down

  • July 7, 2018 at 4:27 PM by an anonymous user from: Hazleton, Pennsylvania, United States

    If you get a request or find something on Facebook too good to be true, all you really have to do is go in the about section and look at their likes and you'll notice foreign movies and actors as likes that should give you the heads up..report and then block people and pages..scammers are everywhere

      You cannot, therefore, contact your bank for help. You may need to cancel your current card and get a new one.

  • June 28, 2018 at 1:18 PM by an anonymous user from: Bedminster, New Jersey, United States

    I have a lot of friend request that been sent to me by Tyler Perry so Idk which one or really him?

    • July 3, 2018 at 8:58 AM by an anonymous user from: Capitol Heights, Maryland, United States

      Well that's easy, no celebrity is going to be adding random people to anything. If a celebrity you've never met in person adds you to social media it is 99% scam.

      Kinda like if some p*rn star looking chick adds you at random, probably a bot.

    • June 28, 2018 at 1:20 PM by info

      All them are fakes or scams because Tyler Perry doesn't sent out friend request.

  • June 26, 2018 at 10:07 AM by an anonymous user from: Topeka, Kansas, United States

    I've come across several and left replies that they were frauds, scamming ppl and Mr. Perry's good name... Now they won't stop sending me friends requests claiming to be Mr. Perry! Lol

  • June 9, 2018 at 7:38 PM by an anonymous user from: Lewisville, Texas, United States

    I was also fooled in believing the real Tyler Perry contacted me in messenger,until l said are you a hacker? They didn't respond. Then l deleted everything from whoever it was.

  • February 9, 2018 at 12:46 PM by an anonymous user from: Indianapolis, Indiana, United States

    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.

  • February 2, 2018 at 5:02 PM by an anonymous user from: Owensboro, Kentucky, United States

  • February 1, 2018 at 12:39 PM by an anonymous user from: Maybee, Michigan, United States

    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!

  • January 23, 2018 at 5:26 PM by an anonymous user from: Marshfield, Wisconsin, United States

    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.

    Received via email:

    "I was contacted about winning a car and $10,000 on facebook from a Tyler Perry page I was sent a friend request and a message in Facebook messanger I was told I needed to go to Walmart and purchase a $300 iTunes card before i could claim winnings and i told them i couldnt afford that and so they sent me a video with an old man saying he claimed his facebook lottery rewards after I told them no they blocked me from the page but...i have screenshots of our conversation... unfortunately I did give them my address for delivery and my phone number do you have any suggestions on what to do next?"

    • March 29, 2017 at 12:56 AM by info

      Just be careful next time, because the scammers will contact you again and attempt to scam you.

      • December 6, 2017 at 10:28 AM by an anonymous user from: Humble, Texas, United States

        I was told to give my password and my bank info so he can send 200,000 to my bank, I need help.

        • December 6, 2017 at 10:45 AM by info

          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.
