Nollywood actor, Mike Ezuruonye, is not happy with the way some hoodlums are denting his image badly. He is furious that some people are using his name to dupe his unsuspecting fans.
According to the actor, the worst side of it all is that they now go as far as blackmailing the fans through Skype if they (fans) fail to meet their demands.
Not able to bear it anymore, the actor came out to clear the air.
“Disclaimer: So disturbed as I hear my teaming fans are defrauded on the daily by fraudsters claiming to be me. Most disturbing is a fraudster also going on Skype and using my movie close up pictures, speaking to people without audio or sometimes slow audio.

“When the person now asks ‘why is the audio slow or not there at all?’, the fraudster claims it’s a network issue.
“Recently, I have even heard of cases of BLACKMAIL from me to my supposed fans on SKYPE. That hurts me big time. Please here's what. If you get anyone claiming to be me or any other entertainer on any video platform on social media, ask the so called celebrity to send you a picture and video with the newspaper of that said day showing the date.
“That’s an idea that could curb this menace. I’m standing up for fellow entertainers whose characters are currently being assassinated by these fraudsters. God bless us all,” he wrote.
