Gospel singer Joe Mettle has exposed a social media user with the handle, Minister Joe Mettle, who is using his name to beg for money from his fans.
In a new post, Mettle has shared a screenshot of the 'fake' page indicating that he is not associated with it in any way.
The screenshot as sighted in Mettle's post is virtually begging unsuspecting fans to donate money to be given to a supposed orphanage.
But in a video accompanying the screenshot, Mettle explained that he never uses the title 'minister' to address himself and does not use the title on any of his social media pages.
Mettle further indicated that he was not going to solicit for funds in such a manner if ever there is the need to do so.
The gospel minister thus urged his fans to ignore all such requests by the said page.
"Something just came to our attention about someone using my name falsely and asking people for money, especially online, using Minister Joe Mettle.
"I never use minister on any of my pages. It's always as Joe Mettle and in most of the cases, the pages are verified.
"If anything at all, I will not ask for support in that manner, asking people in comments, and asking people to donate.
"No please. It is a scam so please be advised. Don't sen any money to anyone. The last one I saw was like a Nigerian number asking people for money. It's not true so please don't fall for it."
