A SHOCKING crimewave is flooding social media – with celebs plugging scams where Brits are conned out of thousands of pounds of their hard-earned cash.
Celebs including Joey Essex, Katie Price, Carl Woods, Chloe Ferrry and Sophie Kaseai have all fallen prey to the lowlife scams, “mistakenly” plugging the dodgy schemes to their millions of followers.
A raft of other celebs and influencers have also been called out for promoting rogue traders.
The bizarre ripoffs usually play out with the “scammer” approaching a celebrity for endorsement.
The celeb then takes to Instagram to plug it, usually referring to the scammer as a friend, promising their followers they can either make them money, should invest or purchase a service.
