Be Aware: Scammers Are Trying To Trick People Out Of Money By Using Miranda Lambert’s Likeness Without Permission
The internet can be the Wild West sometimes. Those with bad intentions will often impersonate famous figures to scam unsuspecting people, usually in an effort to get money.
Some will use a celebrity’s name and likeness to trick people into thinking that celebrity endorses the “product” they’re selling. Miranda Lambert is one celebrity scammers have been using to scam people recently, and increasingly so.
Lambert’s team wanted to warn her fans about these scams since they’re on the rise. In a post on her Instagram Story, they said:
“There are more online scams going around than ever before, so please be aware. These scams use Miranda’s name/likeness and voice without permission to sell their wares.”
Taking things a step further, Lambert’s team listed all of the brands she officially works with, and where the products can be found. See that full list in the image below.
Lambert’s team said if fans ever question if something is legitimately supported by Lambert, they should reach out via the contact section on her official website.
Why Are These Scams Increasing Right Now?
The increase in scams using Lambert’s name and likeness is surely due in part to the recent release of her cookbook, Y’all Eat Yet. The book features recipes from Lambert’s family and friends, as well as some personal stories.
Not long after releasing Y’all Eat Yet, Lambert attended the ACM Awards. She delivered a stunning performance of “Carousel,” which you can watch below.
Hopefully those who love Lambert, her music, and her products will see her team’s message so they don’t get tricked by any scammers in the future.
