Daniel O'Donnell has issued a message on social media warning fans after a woman in Ohio was scammed by criminals pretending to be the Co Donegal singer.

O'Donnell posted his earnest message on social media on Saturday, June 8.

The popular Irish singer said in his video: "I just want to impress upon you again not to engage with anybody on Facebook that contacts you.

"I just met a lady here in Ohio that’s been scammed, and has sent money to somebody pretending to be me.

"Please, I beg of you, don’t engage with anybody on Facebook or Messenger or any other way.

"I will not contact you personally, and I will certainly not ask you for money, for me, or for foundations or anything.

"Absolutely never will I contact you personally.

"So please, please, if anyone contacts you saying they’re me, delete them immediately."

Please take notice

It's not the first time O'Donnell has issued a message to his fans after learning of scammers using his likeness.

In December, he said in a video message on social media: "I will never message anybody privately on Facebook. I will not ask you to message me privately. I will not ask you to send me money.

"There are people out there who are trying to scam people on Facebook and get money out of them.

"Please don't engage with anybody who says that they're me messaging you. It won't be me, it's just some bad person that's trying to take advantage of other people."

In September, he warned fans after a scammer hijacked posts in the wake of his mother-in-law Marion Roche's death.

O'Donnell is finishing his US tour in Pennsylvania this week and will continue touring in Ireland in August before returning stateside in September.
