Fans warned against fake Daniel O'Donnell page doing the rounds online

Beware! Daniel O'Donnell has issued a warning to fans after he heard tell of a fake Facebook page doing the rounds online. 

Set up to impersonate him, the account in question is called 'Danielfrancis O'donnellmusic' and is believed to be contacting people under the pretence that it is the actual singer himself speaking.

Keen to ensure that his most loyal fans aren't caught out by the scam, the Donegal crooner shared a message with the public from his own official Facebook page, writing:

"It has been brought to our attention that another page is circulating impersonating Daniel.

"The page is under the name Danielfrancis O Donnell. The page is adding people as a friend and asking them to email them to a particular email address. Please don't add this page or contact this person. This is Daniel's official Facebook page that you are on and although there are other pages for Daniel fans they are all like pages where they will not ask you to be friends.

"Also Daniel never sends personal messages on his Facebook page. Please just be aware."

This is sorta like the internet version of that registered gas installers advert Daniel is in. 2021 is bad enough without having to deal with this nonsense too so best to have your wits about you when surfing the world wide web.
