Tyler Perry is warning fans about a scam that says he is giving away money on Facebook.
In a video entitled “Don’t Fall For Scams” posted Tuesday, the 48-year-old actor cleared up speculation he was doing a give away, and urged fans to protect their information.
“I am not giving away anything on Facebook,” Tyler insisted. “I am not giving away any money, my team has to shut down these things every day. There’s a new one popping up, do not give your information to any of these people. Do not give them anything. I don’t know who they are, but every day we have to get 10, 20, 30 of those things shut down on Facebook. I am not giving away anything. It’s Tyler Perry, I’m not giving away anything. Please do me a favor, post this everywhere so people will know that it’s not true. Listen, in my life I am a giver, I give a lot of things to a lot of people, to a lot of employees, random things, cars, houses, I do. But that is not true. The Facebook stuff – I’m not giving away anythings. Stop it, devil.”
