Just a reminder as this is still prevalent...
Unfortunately there are people out there who pretend to be someone well-known and trusted on social media in order to make contact with the person’s audience and solicit money from them. The best course of action is to report the impersonator account and do not interact with it. Do not approve a friend request or message request from “TobyMac” as it is coming from an impersonator account. (This does not mean that TobyMac’s page was hacked or that your account was hacked.) All of the official TobyMac social media accounts are verified so look for the blue badge with a checkmark next to the username. Impersonators on Instagram grab a username similar to @officialtobymac but if you look carefully, you’ll see a letter missing or added.
If you do not know how to report an account, send the link to the impersonator’s profile (Facebook) or the Instagram username to email@example.com.
