Is it only on Twitter that you’re having this problem?
No, on Facebook as well, and now I’ve left Facebook officially. They did that to Segun Arinze too…
(Cut in) we know, Segun Arinze has already spoken with us.
Oh ok then.
How did you find out?
It’s one of my friends who brought that to my notice. After he paid money to the impostors, he now called me to know if I know anything about it. And I told him I know nothing about it. Then it was obvious to me that something was wrong. So I went to check and was shocked how many accounts that were opened on Facebook on my name, which I had no idea of.
What do you want your fans to know?
I want my fans to send messages to Twitter reporting that fake account to them. The account to report is @RichardMofeD. Let Twitter be aware and delete it. If more people keep reporting him as spam, Twitter will get notice of it and remove it…
Nollywoodgossip wishes you the best.
Thank you so much. I appreciate Nollywoodgossip.
