In a recent rise of celebrity scammers and hackers, Jason Momoa is the latest to fall victim to this epidemic. An anonymous scammer has been sending texts to people claiming to be the 'Aquaman' and 'Game of Thrones' actor.
Most recently Mariah Carey's Twitter account was hacked on New Year's Eve and Adam Sandlers' was hacked in the new year. Both accounts were flooded with offensive spam tweets before being booted off. Many suspect that the hacker group Chuckling Squad are behind these hacks.
"If u got this email sorry it is not from its from some f—ing coward thief. I hope I find you," Momoa wrote on his story.
He then posted a text that the imposter sent. "How are you doing and how is everything going with you and the family?" the impersonator wrote claiming it came from Jason Momoa's iPhone.
He then posted a second message that the scammer sent to the same person. In the email, the scammer pretended to be Jason Momoa's agent identifying as Patrick Whitesell from William Morris Endeavor.
"Miss [redacted] I was asked to send you an email to confirm that it was really my client Jason Momoa who contacted you, I can confirm it was Jason, I hope this clears this matter up. Sincerely Patrick Whitesell, Agent William Morris Endeavor," the imposter wrote.
Momoa described the email as "bulls— lies."
"Dear Miss [redacted]. My name is Jean Victoria and I am the executive assistant for Game of Thrones and Aquaman actor Jason Momoa, Jason is very interested in having you join him in a movie project he will doing next year, if you can get back to us ASAP with a contact number, Jason is filming right now and said he will be happy to call you back personally," they wrote in a third message signing as Jean Victoria for Jason Momoa.
"This guy is f—ed up," Momoa wrote in response. "Trust no one I'm not emailing anyone."
Momoa fans have been warned to keep their eye out for these types of messages and remember that if the A-list actor claims to work alongside them in his next film, it's probably too good to be true.
Duane "Dog" Chapman was also recently scammed. He was sent a check for $430,000 for a charity event he was speaking at. However, the scammers were planning on using it to get into his account to steal money.
