A fake Rami on IG....this time trying the old ‘I want to donate to charity in secret so give me your bank account details so you can donate on my behalf’ scam.

Reported to IG and FF (via Twitter) - account closed within hours.

Not member impersonators but IG accounts that represent themselves as fan accounts but link to scam merch sites:

A Pat Smear account reeled someone in & gave them an email address for a “Janet Fraser” to take payment for the $390 meet and greet.
