Gospel singer Kurt Carr fell victim to a recent cyber hoax. His identity was stolen by a scam artist through the use of fake social media pages, email addresses and a Google voice number in order to contact fellow musicians, preachers, fans to steal money.
Carr turned this information over, and has been working with authorities to find out who is behind these scams.
“It is unbelievable to think that someone would attempt to use my identity to contact people in an effort to scam them. I am working with authorities to ensure that the scam artist is uncovered and faces the necessary consequences,” he said.
Any contact from Carr that’s not from his official Twitter, Facebook or Instagram accounts via @TheKurtCarr isn’t real and should be reported as fraud.
