Nyla Rose is one of the premiere stars of the AEW women’s division. The Native Beast is a former AEW Women’s World Champion. Nyla’s also developed a loyal following on social media. Rose recently issued an important word of caution for her online fans.
Professional wrestlers have been used in catfishing scams for as long as social media has existed. Seth Rollins has had two eerily similar stories of fake accounts pretending to be him in the past. One even led to a real-life attack during a live episode of Monday Night Raw.
Nyla Rose has become the latest victim of the scam. Rose took to Instagram to remind her fans that the only legit social media accounts using her name are verified on all platforms. Nyla also joked that she doesn’t want to talk to weirdo fans anyway.
“It’s been brought to my attention that a few fake Nyla pages are messaging ppl, pretending to be me… reminder, I’m verified on all platforms and I don’t want to talk to you weirdos so use some common sense eh just report the fake pages, telling me about them does nothing.”
If you think you’re talking to Nyla Rose online, now would be an excellent time to stop. The person behind the fake account is likely going to try some sort of scam. This isn’t the first time a wrestler has been targeted and it certainly won’t be the last.
Wrestlers themselves have been falling victim to online hacking scams as well. Lance Archer recently had his Twitter account taken over. It was reported that crooks have been offering wrestlers free shoes and then stealing their Twitter credentials and using the stolen login info to scam fans. Nyla Rose wants no part of the online tomfoolery.
