Ellen Degeneres Facebook Scam

There is a new like farming post circulating which pretends to be from US celebrity Ellen DeGeneres and promises a cash giveaway to those who like, share and comment. It uses actual photos and videos of DeGeneres but is a fake account. This fake profile is using names similar to Ellen De Generes, eg "Ellin DeGenerous" that are contacting people via Messenger or on group posts to claim the person targetted has won a prize. But, Ellen DeGeneres is in no way associated with these fake profiles nor with the fake giveaway.

    I was duped by this scam out of desperation of financial hardship. It said I wont be charged but immediately I was charged $1 then within seconds $2.95, then again I just received an alert that another $2.95 was charged on my credit card. I can't afford this as I'm on SSI and receive food benefits from numerous heart attacks and other health issues. As I feel its Facebook's responsibility to maintain a safe environment and failed to do so. I also feel that Ellen herself is at fault for knowing there are these scams but taking little to no actions to prevent this from happening.

    I was told I won $200,00.00 from your fan giveaway x

    I’m so depressed. I m an intelligent elderly woman who has had so much bad luck that it was easy for me to believe, it looked so real.

    My daughters stole my life, then my $ money shoved me into an adult sr living apt. I didn’t pay the bill to where I owed &50,000.00, kept canceling my medical appointments, and left me without a penny for about 10 months. My director found out I’d been physically and mentally abused by them and all the aforementioned setbacks and turned it into the co. It’s all in the courts now and I figured no more could go wrong. I thought my world was back,

    Ok it’s not. I hope you get them... I’m crushed. I was sent from home to home as a foster child and humiliated because I was an Indian child... now I’m back in foster home at 69.

    Please catch these animals.
