Fake U2 Social Media Accounts

Recommended Posts

Thought it might be important to add this here, as people have mentioned in the past not knowing how some of these fake accounts end up finding them/messaging them. 
Just a short while ago the official U2 Instagram made a post about the new RSD release. I commented on it and within moments I received this:

So please be aware that these people are scrolling through comments that you may make on the social media platforms. Fortunately, I have my account private, so that’s as far as they could get with me.

In social media, there's no such thing as a harmless bot...

Thanks for the tip... the advice here is, as usual, report and block...

Please report it; and since Bono doesn’t actually have an account, on the question where it asks who are they pretending to be, I’d put the official U2 one.
