Outlander star Lauren Lyle has warned of a ‘creepy’ Instagram profile pretending to be her to reach out to fans.
The Scots actress, who plays Marsali Fraser in the hit show, urged her social media followers to report the fake profile after sharing images of messages a fan received.
It read: “Hey there. I hope you’re well and safe. With this opportunity I want to take my time to reach out to you my fan personally.”
The 27-year-old reposted the message on her Instagram story and wrote: “This is creepy and not me. Report and block.”
It is not the first time the Outlander cast has been targeted by online fraudsters.
Earlier this year, one con artist posed as Sam Heughan and contacted multiple women across North America and tricked them out of their life savings.
Stephanie, a 56-year-old nurse from Florida, handed over £36,500 after believing she had been in an online relationship with Heughan since 2018.
