Facebook Scam: Tony Terry Online Musical Concert Sponsored by Nike

The newest scam to pop up in my inbox is an e-mail from “Liam,” claiming to be Tony Terry’s manager representing an online musical concert to be held on Facebook in March. The event is supposedly sponsored by Nike, and they offered to pay me $2,000 for each episode. Wow, how could I not pass up this amazing opportunity to get my Facebook page stolen again? lol

I suspected a scam, but of course I replied back for research purposes and let them know I was interested. Here’s the reply:

Hey Candy,

Thank you for your email and for confirming your availability for our online musical event on March 20th. We will send you the event details shortly, including the exact time of your episode.

A quick visit to Tony Terry’s Facebook page proved it was a scam:

Another scam exposed!

I hope you found this post BEFORE you changed any of your Facebook settings and let them into your page. I have contacted the person who posted to find out how she got her page back, so hopefully I’ll have that info to share with you all soon. Just remember, never let anyone “help” you change your Facebook settings! The only thing they’ll be helping is to relieve you of is your page ownership.

**And if you are reading this and it saved you the headache of losing your page, please drop a comment and let me know! You can also find me on Facebook at (cosplay) and (mom blog)

Oh look! I just got another message from Tony Terry today. I guess they forgot about our March date! Lol

  1. Thank you so much for your post. They contacted me too. I think Tony Terry should issue a statement against this scam. They re spoiling his name.

  2. Gosh , I instead got a call from my previous manager (who was working for a reputed agency here in India before he quit). So he calls me and tell me about this online paid event by Nike (think he also got scammed into believing it’s real, don’t think he is part of the scam ). Then a zoom meeting gets set up between us and this “tony terry” to explain the details of the paid event by the “the culture of music , entertainment “. This manager of Tony Terry has kept his video off and is only audible. He speaks good English sounds like he is from the west. And told me the basic idea behind the event. Everything sounded genuine. Then later I’m not able to find this paid event section in my FB page. Then my manager tells me he will help me find it , so I give him partial access. He is unable to find it. He has a talk with this “tony” guy and he is told that they require my password to be able to locate the paid event in my FB page😂. I am glad I didn’t fall for that. Instead just kept quiet. Then my manager said he can get Tony to guide me over a zoom call to help locate it. I said ok. That zoom call is still pending still long. I get a doubt and I search n then I found this. Thank you to writing this blog !!
