CHRIS EVAN’S TWEET
Quick message to fans: I would never, EVER ask any fan for money. If you’ve had an interaction with someone claiming to be me asking for money, it’s fake. And to anyone who actually preys on fans in this way, you’re garbage.

Chris Evans used the social media platform Twitter to reach out to the audience and inform them about the imposture. The actor said that he would never resort to this. The people getting monetary requests in the name of Chris Evans should act with discretion as this is a hoax. Evans, in a tweet, asked his fans to be cautious of anyone reaching out to them on his behalf. A bank account is claiming to be Chris Evan’s account. The imposter is asking fans to assist him financially. Practically, Evans would not need monetary help for any reason.
This is the second time that Evans has faced an online artifice. In August 2019, when the number neighbour phenomenon was hyped, one account claimed to be contacted by Chris Evans. A post included screenshots of a text conversation between them and their number neighbour, who portrayed himself as “America’s Ass”. In the end, he asked the user to FaceTime him. The picture of the conversation was accompanied by images of Evans speaking on FaceTime. The tweet quickly went viral. As a consequence, he tweeted, stating that it was fake.
