Korn’s Brian “Head” Welch Exposes Scammer Impersonating Him On Social Media


Korn guitarist Brian “Head” Welch has shared the below post on Instagram showcasing a discussion had with a scammer who had been impersonating him on social media. To that end, the individual has been attempting to mimic Welch‘s social media presence in a bid to charge fans $1,000 for ‘VIP fan ID’.

While the poor grammar and amusing offer to come to your residence should be a warning sign for most, the lack of a verified check mark should be common sense at this point. That said, there are certainly scammers out there who are far more convincing and sophisticated, with the problem remaining widespread on social media for those in the public eye. Welch commented:

“Fake accounts are always popping up, trying to steel money from my fans on Facebook, Twitter & instagram. They mimic my accounts with the same photos and reach out to fans to trick them into giving money. This is how they do it. They are losers who don’t have a life, pass it on!”
