Celebrities Plagued By Fake MySpace Pages

NEW YORK (Wireless Flash - FlashNews) – Celebrities not only have to deal with annoying paparazzi but also fake MySpace pages.

Danielle Chiara, the entertainment editor of J-14 magazine, says many top celebrities are being victimized by people who put up bogus MySpace pages and write pretend blogs as the celebrity.

Chiara says Carrie Underwood doesn’t have a MySpace page, but keeps meeting fans who claim they had an e-mail chat with her on the website.

Other celebrities who’ve been the victim of fake MySpace pages include Lindsey Lohan and Kristin Cavallari, who insists she doesn’t have a MySpace account.

But the celebrity who’s been victimized the most is High School Musical star Zac Efron. Someone posted a fake MySpace page that included his real phone number and his family has been bombarded with calls.

It’s hard to tell if a MySpace page is fake, so if you’re chatting with someone claiming to be a celebrity, Chiara suggests asking them a question about something only they would know.
