My aunt is being catfished by Keanu right now. He supposedly gave her a ton of money...... what do I do??? She is insisting it is him, but we know it isn’t. Also, he now has access to her banking info as it was a wire transfer from an overseas account. He supposedly calls her, FaceTimes her, and sends her gifts, and let’s her use his Apple Card! Wtf!?! Not that my auntie isn’t admirable or beautiful, but this just doesn’t happen!! Advice?

I'm sorry to hear about that. :( That's pretty scary.

Would it be possible for you to be present during one of those FaceTime calls? (Or ask her to take a photo.) It would be easiest to tell if it's an impostor, but one other tactic they use is to show a video of Keanu talking and then do a voice over, so it looks like he's speaking.

Keanu's friends (and Keanu himself) have repeatedly emphasised that he is not on social media and will not contact anyone through there:

From Alex Winter:


"Hi, I appreciate that the imposter Keanu thing is stressing some people out, but all anyone needs to understand is that he has zero social media accounts," wrote Winter. "They're all fake. Thanks."

https://comicbook.com/movies/news/keanu-reeves-social-media-fake-accounts-alex-winter-bill-and-ted/


From Ed Solomon (Bill & Ted writer and close friend of Keanu), regarding another imposter:


"If she’s the kind of person who would believe any one of the 26,475 fake Keanus out there is a real Keanu, I’m not sure anything will convince her. It’s not real. Keanu is not on social media and would never reach out to anyone. Not ever."

Some news reports:

"A Hamilton Township woman who thought she was communicating with Hollywood actor Keanu Reeves over social media was scammed out of $2,700, Northumberland OPP said."
https://www.canadianfraudnews.com/hamilton-woman-scammed-pretend-reeves/

"Just found out my retired mother got scammed by someone posing to be Keanu Reeves on social media and is out a big chunk of money"
https://www.reddit.com/r/Scams/comments/fuyvn6/just_found_out_my_retired_mother_got_scammed_by/

Keanu imposters scamming money via Google Hangouts, claiming it's for donations to charity:

A PSA from another group that's been tracking fake Keanu accounts, many of them survivors of the scam:
https://twitter.com/keanuplanet/status/1064808522016264192

Someone who said: "they sent me a forged copy of a drivers licence and they did a video chat with footage of Keanu and them speaking over the top - I couldn't understand him as the syncing was out and there was an obvious non American accent"
https://www.reddit.com/r/KeanuBeingAwesome/comments/c9sost/scammers_pretending_to_be_keanu/

This fan group has been tracking and reporting Keanu impostors:

Hopefully all this will at least make her a little suspicious.

Also, do remind her that Keanu is currently probably in some form of lockdown with his girlfriend, Alexandra Grant, who is not likely to be happy if he's always chatting to random women on video.

I just got a message from a ‘Keanu Reeves’ I knew it wasn’t him, I felt sick and my stomach knew not to talk to him. I backed off and I’m immediately going to block him.

Hi it’s Rachael again, this is his Twitter account, which I have reported @KeanuRe66513301 and the email address I got from him is mrkeanureeves45@gmail.com
I felt like this dude was ordering me to get the hangouts app and talk to him privately on there, he said he couldn’t find me and since I said I just messaged you, he didn’t message me back after that. He kept asking me questions I felt like no this is not Keanu. The whole thing literally made me feel sick.

I am so glad you guys have this post up. This morning I was playing on my phone and a person with the pic and name Keanu tried to start a match with me. I played and he asked me to go to hangouts to chat. How strange. I intended on not commenting on the name until he pointed it out. He talked of LA, Hawaii. Asked if I liked his movies, that he was a director. Asked if I was married, asked for my email. Asked to join Hangouts, to send a pic. He said is email is rkeanu432@gmail.com

My aunt is being scammed terribly right now. She is mentally unstable, and truly believes Keanu loves her. She says she talks to him all day, and is traveling next month to Germany for the filming of the matrix 4. She is taking out her investments, and investing it all into BitCoin. Anyone have any idea how we can try to help her?? Please!! This is devastating to witness, and bless Keanu Reeves heart for having so many people in his corner to take down social media accounts in his name.......

This person(s) is sending her burner phones, and getting angry when she isn’t or won’t send money to charity’s or whatever they want her to do. She believes they are in love....... poor Keanu....... but we need to try to help these women being scammed in his name!!! ???????????????? HELP US, HELP HER!!! ????????????????

I am not able to be with her during a call as we are on opposite sides of the country...... she blocked me on fb for “spilling the beans” and is distancing herself from us all. Her daughters are trying to get legal guardianship of her and her finances, as these scammers have hacked her account so many times already! She lost her boyfriend, friends, etc. she doesn’t think she is crazy, and stopped taking all meds. These people are really making a mockery of her, and taking advantage of her mental health! It’s exhausting, and totally terrible!

If anyone can point me in the direction of having this stopped I’d appreciate it! Maybe Keanu himself telling her wouldn’t even work, but anything is worth a shot at this point before she ends up dead by the hands of the monsters! It’s really terrifying!

Hi Mdsept1705,

You can refer to the list of articles I linked higher up in the thread: www.whoaisnotme.net/forums/view.php?threadid=1003&p=4#21256

Multiple people who are close to Keanu have stated that he is not on social media, and Keanu himself has likewise said that he isn't. I don't know what else can be done, unfortunately. Try and contact social services in your area.

If anyone is being seriously harmed by scammimg, we can't help them here, as much as we'd like to. They need legal help, law enforcement help, mental health services. This is a much bigger issue than a horrible fake Keanu scammer.

Short of serious financial harm, anyone who insists on believing a loathsome fake Keanu, refusing to believe both Alex Winter and Ed Solomon about this, simply needs to get their shit together.

Also - about the case above - "having Keanu himself tell her" is pretty much exactly the opposite of what to do. The responsibility is 100% NOT Keanu's not his manager's nor publicist's. People need to take responsibility for their own gullibility.

I had a former friend (former because of this) who was sort of catfished by someone claiming to be a close personal confidante of Keanu's who strung her along for years, having her believe (and spend thousands of dollars andliterally all of her time) that she could get her "close" to Keanu - which of course never happened. She died still believing this. Tragic but also a significant mental health issue.

The tendency to fall for this feels a whole lot like a mental health issue, best addressed by professionals.

Some of these people can be very convincing. Sending selfies, video chat dubbing etc. I even got flowers from the first one. LOL. They got nothing from me, just attitude! I reported him and submitted to the FBI due to the content that they sent.

Hello everybody! I just want to inform you that someone had tried to scam me with Keanu's name. He using Skype to connect me from 17 September 2020 till 20 October 2020 and he told me to discreet our conversation and he promised me to invite me to Berlin for a date, even we made a video call in Skype, but I do believe he using Deep Fake technology. He told me to send an email to his management team with address: emmagoziee@gmail.com for my reservation payment in Berlin, and he even told me to follow Emma's instruction which I should paid $3950 via wire transfer for the reservation, with a bank account on name: Sharena Smith, address: 1441 Rainbow ave, West Palm Beach FL 33406, routing number: 267084131, account number: 630686019, bank name: Chase bank with bank address: 411 S County Rd, Palm beach, FL 33480, United State. I do believe the reservation itself was fake, so I didn't do the wire transfer at all, even not a penny, because I do believe they all are a syndicate who tried to fraud peoples with Keanu's name. Considering this matter, I'm hoping all of you guys to help me to uncover the syndicate, because I lived in West Java, Indonesia so it's hard for me to uncover the syndicate considering our distance, which I'm so faraway from United state.

I signed up to mention some of the Keanu scammers out there but it seems there's already a massive thread on it!
It actually baffles me to see the lengths that some people will go to, it's crazy.
