Been contacted by one of the Supernatural cast members? Chances are this is someone impersonating them and Stands wants you to be aware.

Stands has sent out a PSA on Twitter DMs. Many people have been contacted by the “Supernatural cast,” requesting that they send money. While most, this has set off alarm bells but it’s worth being aware of the scam.

The Supernatural cast members aren’t going to DM you on social media for money. Even if the Twitter profile looks legit, there’s a sure-fire way to tell if they are or not. All the cast members have verified accounts, which offer some element of protection. They don’t have private accounts that they use for other reasons.

Still not sure? You can always check the profile out. Look at when they joined, who follows them (clue: all the cast members pretty much follow each other), and the type of content they tweet out.

If something seems too good to be true or you feel uneasy, click away from the DM. Block the person and report them. Twitter can always handle the account and determine if its a legit one or not.

Should the Supernatural cast need to set up a new Twitter account for any reason, you can be sure the rest of the cast members will tweet something out. If Jensen Ackles is hacked and needs to shut his account down, Jared Padalecki, Misha Collins, Alexander Calvert, and many more will let you know!

Stands’ PSA shouldn’t need to be said, but right now it does. The main and the guest stars have all been replicated and scammed through.

In fact, Fredric Lehne recently came to Twitter to let his fans know who the real person was and then let me know personally with a photo of him (and the article) that it was definitely him. This is how you know when someone is legit or not for reals.

Whatever you do, don’t just send money through the DMs or private means. All campaigns will run through Stands, Represent, or another legitimate company like this. If someone is asking for money directly, it’s not one of the Supernatural cast members.
