It has come to our attention that there are imposters pretending to be various members of the Scorpions.
Messaging and stalking fans and ultimately asking them for money or other scams.
PLEASE DO NOT ENGAGE WITH THEM OR SEND THEM ANY MONEY PERIOD.
Matthias, Rudolf, Klaus, Pawel, or Mikkey are NOT sending “Friend Requests”, “Private messages”, “Facebook Messenger” messages, “Google Hangout” Messages or chats, etc. with anyone online period.
As you can see in this article below this is a widespread issue among artists and celebrities on social media. We want you all to stay safe and please read the article.
Imposter accounts continue to reach out to Scorpion’s fans and followers via friend requests and private messages on Facebook, Twitter, Instagram, Youtube and Gmail, Google Hangouts, etc. DO NOT ACCEPT ANY unsolicited request or engage in chat/email or phone calls. DO NOT believe these scammers’ attempts to convince you that they are one of the members of the SCORPIONS with fake profile pages, email addresses, altered passport photos and edited social security cards — all of which are easily created with Photoshop.
The Scorpions do not single out random followers on social media to offer exclusive opportunities (ie: meet & greet) or ask for charity donations or other requests.
REPORT imposters immediately by clicking the 3 dots on any suspect profile ONLY IF THEY HAVE REACHED OUT TO YOU.
These are ONLY the official band channels (often verified w/ blue checkmark):
