Thank you for sharing your story, @keyo32198  As you said, hopefully it will help in preventing it from happening to others. 

No problem at all. It took a bit of courage because I am so ashamed and frankly heartbroken but I really do hope that I can help someone else not get ripped off. I heard for the last time from the Fake Edge tonight,  He got quite nasty and I finally blocked him.

I was just physically threatened by the fake Bono _u2.bono_ his email that he uses is From: Paul Hewson <officialu2bono@gmail.com> I am quite frightened now. I believe that he may be in California but I am not sure. If anyone comes in contact with this man call the Police ASAP.   

 

You know you can at least call the police where you live to report the threat. Ask the police what you should do. You should also contact the FBI. Don’t ignore the threat.

Instagram does nothing when you report these people! Nothing! They are still on Instagram scamming and threatening people. 

Unfortunately we have no control over what Instagram chooses to do or not to do; and as these accounts are outside the realm of Zootopia, we can only offer suggestions as to how to handle them, ie unfollow and block. 

As the other two said, I highly recommend reporting this latest incident to the authorities immediately.

Quite awhile ago I messaged a community moderator (and now I’ve forgotten which one! -sorry!) about the fake Bono& Edge links & phone numbers that I had found, no one responded so I’m wondering if anyone actually received my message.

You messaged me and I responded that I had passed on the information.
