    Fake U2 Social Media Accounts

    I would also say that if someone sends an ID like this that 1) he can't sign it as "Bono" when that's not the printed name and 2) it looks like a photo-shopped picture, especially if you look around his ears and top of head. Definitely if anyone else gets an ID like this, do not take that as proof, there are criminals who professionally make fake IDs for whoever wants one so it's not a leap to think they would do it to try to fool people into believing they are a celebrity.

    Fake U2 Social Media Accounts

    I'm sorry you were scammed like that keyo. All of these accounts really need to be removed, I can't believe they have so many followers and get away with scamming money out of us fans like this. But I had to double take, that is the Bono passport the other fake Bono sent me! I am sure of it! I wouldn't be surprised if it's one person or a group of them working together with these fake accounts.

    Fake U2 Social Media Accounts

    That's what I figure too. I have a feeling it isn't an actual person comparing accounts most of the time but just software, it's easy enough to catch accounts that totally copy posts from whoever they are impersonating, but when this guy is not doing that then he can't be caught so easily. And also because you have to report the official U2 account. I only wish I had thought to take a screenshot of it! That would certainly give more reason to suspend that account, and prove that I'm not making it up (which I really am not). But I was so offended that someone went that far that I just told him that must be a fake and he deleted it right away and blocked me. Hopefully others report this and Instagram figures it out.

    Fake U2 Social Media Accounts

    So much for that, Instagram decided that the paul_david_hewson_u2 account is not violating community guidelines. I called him out on the fake ID and got blocked before I could screen capture it 😆. I ended up not reporting the other because it’s public posts look more like a fan page, but users should still be wary if that page contacts them.

    Fake U2 Social Media Accounts

    Two have contacted me on Instagram. _u2.bono and paul_david_hewson_u2. The later even showed me a fake ID. When reporting, do I report them as spam? The only options I see are “spam” or “inappropriate”,

    U2 tribute band clearinghouse thread

    I saw this entire situation happen 🤣 It was actually "Edge's" doing - "Adam" stood right next to him and suddenly "Edge" shoved him in front of the keyboard and put his arms around him to play the keyboard. The look on "Adam's" face was hilarious 🤣 These guys really are great, and they always look like they have so much fun doing this!

    Haven't been on these threads for a while! Thought I'd share a picture from the UF2 show in October. Always fun, especially with fellow fan dmway!

    U2 dreams

    Yes! Omaze should do that next year - Shopping with U2, and get your own rock star wardrobe! ? And I'm sure Bono's wisdom was an echo of what I have many people telling me now (including you!) - That everything will work out! It just took hearing it from my favorite frontman to get through to me ? I did wake up feeling very calm - You know when Bono speaks in his serious voice that he is very assuring!

    U2 dreams

    Well I had a U2 dream a few nights ago but got so busy I forgot to post it! So some details are definitely missing, but this is the best I can remember... I was in a shopping mall - like a Macy's or something, it was similar to the mall I've been going to my entire life but also had some elements of one I visited in New Orleans. All four band members were there! Most of it was me walking with Larry and Adam, discussing something important that I can't remember but may have been related to certain major events going on in my life right now (starting graduate school and moving out on my own), and then Bono and Edge were ahead of us generally playing around and trying on hats. At some point in changed to just me and Bono, but I don't remember what was said. I think it was one of those dreams where you know a conversation is going on but can't really hear all the words clearly, but it seemed to be all deep conversations and me receiving advice. Of course I woke up wishing I could go back!
