"Hi friends,fans and followers, kindly help spread this picture and note as it's become alarming how the imposters are using my name to do scams."
"My only genuine Facebook account is the one with the blue verified mark, the rest of the accounts below the verified one are fake."
"Someone called my attention to one of the fake accounts today where the imposter promised people laptops, iPad and many things. See next pictures for such example..."
