The person trying to contact you is NOT Joe Bonamassa,
anyone from his management, or family.

NEVER WIRE MONEY TO ANYONE
USING WALMART OR ANY OTHER SERVICE!


Much like the old email scams, modern con-artists use Facebook to duplicate celebrity’s profiles and play the part until they ask you for money, or some other assistance (eventually they will ask you for money).

This is a problem that almost every celebrity has to deal with, from Sports Heroes to TV & Film stars, and definitely musicians.

CHECK FOR THE CHECK! 

No matter what they say, they are not Joe Bonamassa. Duplicate profile scams are the reason that Facebook started their “Verified Profile” system. Here’s a link to Facebook’s official announcement about the verification system: https://www.facebook.com/help/196050490547892


Notice the little blue check mark next to Joe's name. This is crucial. If the profile doesn't have this check, it's definitely fake. Notice that Joe's official Page & Personal Profile are both verified.




REPORTING THE SCAMMER

We at J&R Adventures, Joe Bonamassa’s official record label, are saddened and angered that we had to create this page, but con-artists will never stop, and though we work closely with Facebook to kill fake accounts, scammers will create them as quickly as we delete them.



If you have been the target of one of these scams, please contact Joe’s Digital Marketing Director, Scott Macaluso (JBWM) here: Scott@JR-Adventures.com and immediately stop talking to the scammer!
