Tommy Bowe is the latest celebrity to find his identity being manipulated after a fake image of him being arrested was shared online in an attempt to scam people.

Sharing a picture, which appears on social media, the fake ad has the caption “RTÉ One Management refuses to comment,” while a photoshopped image of Tommy apparently being led away by security guards accompanies the ad.

Just this morning the Ireland AM presenter shared an array of other fake posts he found of himself.

“Central Bank of Ireland sues Tommy Bowe for what he said on live TV,” read one article.

While another stated: “Career Jeopardised, He’s Been Hiding It For Years.”

“I see the scammers are back again!” shared Tommy.

“If you come across can you please report and send onto me.”

This comes not long after Daniel O’Donnell took to his Facebook page to warn followers of ongoing scams impersonating him.

Following the death of his mother-in-law Marion, a fake page began circulating which was responding to well wishes from followers on his page.

Anna Geary, Doireann Garrihy and Elaine Crowley have all also previously been the subject of scams — with false pages created in their name with the hopes of conning people out of money.

Be careful out there folks!
