Is it the one with a shit load of pics of himself & his own kid? Not DGís kid. You would have to be a special kind of stupid to fall for that one.

This one's only got a few pics of DG and the rest are photos of rocks, sunsets, and a wall covered in black Post-Its with captions like, "Comment down below when you first listened to my music!"

I get to thinking, y'know, if you go for that with so little verification, maybe you deserve to be scammed. That'll teach you.

A friend's sister got scammed by a fake Tre Cool. She's been very vulnerable since their mom passed away, and this person got her good. They're still at it, too.

Have they tried @ the officlal band and band member accounts until something is done?

Yeah, they are trying. We also @ Tre's Instagram, but no response yet. We know they can't get the money back; we just want to stop these people from scamming other fans.
