I liked a page for Jake Owens’s music and it generated a situation that I believe to be a scam where someone was trying to scam me and invited me for a live chat with Jake Owen. The phone number they messaged me on was 786-7523-6690. They tried to poise as Jake Owen. They even sent me copies of Jake's alleged driver's license, and RCA ID card. They were trying to get me to help get access to $300,000.000 in a brief case he left somewhere and he did not want his management to know about it.
I reverse called the phone number on white pages and it listed someone in Homestead, Florida. When I told them I had heard about scams like this before, they tried to make me believe it was Jake Owens.
I was going to copy and paste the message where they were trying to find a loyal fan to help him with a task that was bothering , which is mentioned above, but they have since deleted that portion of the message.
The driver's license for Jake Owen they sent me was for a Joshua R. Owen and it looks legitimate, but the RCA ID card was definitely a copy and paste fraudulent ID.... I will be reporting this number to the authorities... but if Jake Owens is with RCA Records, please advise him someone is trying to scam people on Facebook. All I did was like his music!! Or if you could contact his music managers and alert them, I would appreciate it.
When I told them I reversed called the number and checking into them... they stopped communicating with me and deleted that part of the messenger message.
I looked up the artists with RCA and see that he is not even listed as an artist with RCA...
