I' m so incredibly ashamed and emberesed embaressed but I have tp tell my story to protect other U2 fans. I have been a U2 fan since I was 14 1985. I am a bright educated woman but I got scammed.
On Instagram "The Edge" approached me. At first I thought it was too good to be true but then I got sucked in. And by the way it was too good to be true. He promised me a meet and greet but talked to me a while before he hooked me. This man is very very believable. There is also a multiple fake Bono's but one that is working with this Fake Edge. There Instagram names are _u2.bono_ and the other is u2.Edge_. This person impersonating the Edge went as far as having his "Assistant" Send me a "Meet and Greet" invitation it all looked very official to me. There were red flags for sure but as a fan of 34 years I so wanted it to be true. To date this man has gotten $5.000 out of me! $5,000! I am so ashamed and I am not a wealthy woman. If anyone has any questions regarding these two people and the interactions I had I am more than happy to share my experiences. I don't want this to happen to anyone else. I did meet a lovely woman from another country that had thousands taken from her,. There are multiple fake Bono's. One of them contacted me about donating to a secret foundation in Brazil and was extremely pushy. Then another Fake Edge immediately sent me a nasty message. after I told the other fake Bono that there is no such foundation. I have met a nice fan on Instagram that is from another country who has also had thousands of dollars stolen from her. There are so many victims out there.
Bono, Edge, Larry, Adam if you ever read these threads please know this is the most painful thing I have ever gone through.
Please everyone on social media be careful. I am more than willing to answer questions if anyone has any.
