STAYING SAFE ONLINE
Protecting Yourself from Scammers Impersonating Jaret Ray Reddick
I am deeply grateful for your support and enthusiasm for my venture into country music.
Unfortunately, I have become aware of a growing number of scammers on social media who are attempting to deceive my amazing supporters. I want to ensure your safety and protect you from these fraudulent activities. That's why I made this page, to serve as a guide to help you navigate the online world and avoid falling victim to these scams.
Official Channels Only:
Please remember that the only verified and official social media pages associated with my band are those listed and linked directly from my official website at www.jaretrayreddick.com. Any other profiles or pages claiming to represent us are fraudulent. To stay safe, I strongly advise you to only engage with content and communication from my official channels.
Be Wary of Requests for Payment:
I will never ask fans for money through social media. If you encounter a profile or page claiming to be me and requesting payment for access to conversations, merchandise, or any other services, please be aware that it is a scam. I want to provide a transparent and secure experience for my fans, and any official merchandise or services will always be prominently displayed on my website.
I will never initiate private conversations with fans through social media platforms. If you receive messages from someone claiming to be me or a band member seeking private conversations, please be cautious. This is a common tactic used by scammers. Remember, my official interactions with fans primarily occur through public posts, comments, and occasional meet-and-greet events that will always be announced on my official channels.
Reporting Fake Profiles:
Your vigilance in reporting fake profiles and pages is crucial in protecting other fans from falling victim to scams. If you come across any suspicious accounts impersonating me or members of my band, please report them to the respective social media platforms immediately. By reporting these impostors, you are helping us maintain a safe and authentic online presence.
The only official Jaret Ray Reddick merchandise is available through Bandwear (US based), Probity Merch (UK based) and Merchbar. Bandwear and Probity are our official merchandise partners and sell merchandise the band itself are involved in creating. Merchbar is an official aggregator of our merch through Bandwear. If you purchase through Merchbar, you are purchasing through Bandwear. We do sell a few limited items on Amazon, and Bandwear is the merchant for those items. Any other links you find on the web or that are posted on social media are fakes created by criminals who are not involved with the band and are fraudulently making money off our name and art. Many of these fake links are indeed scams where your personal information and/or credit card info will be stolen and sold. Please only purchase Jaret Ray Reddick merchandise through our official channels, also linked from www.jaretrayreddick.com.
Trust Your Instincts:
It’s important to trust your instincts when interacting online. If something feels off or suspicious, take a step back and reassess the situation. Scammers often employ manipulative tactics to gain your trust, so always be cautious and skeptical of unsolicited messages or requests, even if they claim to be from our band. Your safety and well-being are of utmost importance to me. By following these guidelines and being aware of the potential risks, you can protect yourself from scammers impersonating me and my band members. Remember, the only official sources of information, updates, and merchandise will always be available on my official website at www.jaretrayreddick.com. If it doesn’t link from there, it’s not official.
Thank you for your continuous support, I appreciate you more than you will ever know! Together, we can create a safer and more enjoyable online experience for all of us.
