Una Healy has issued a warning to her followers as a fake account is using her name to try scam people.
The popstar turned presenter was less than impressed after noticing a fake Instagram page was set up, claiming to be her “second account to talk to her fans”.
Una quickly shut down any speculation that she is associated with the account and has warned her fans not to fall victim to any potential scams.

Taking to Instagram, she said: “Hey everyone, I just want to on here to say I’ve been asked so many times over the last 24 hours if I have another Instagram account.
“Basically there’s a scammer back again – the same one I believe.
“They’re just copy and pasting everything from my page.”
The impersonator has blocked Una from the fake page meaning she can’t report it.
The Tipperary native has asked her fans to take action and help her out.
She added: “The cheek of them, they have me blocked so I can’t report them.
“It looks identical to my account but it’s not a verified account. So please if you see it, report it and block it.
“There’s a lot of this going on. A lot of scammers out there. People having their identities almost stolen and these scammers are asking for all sorts.
“It has to be stopped so if you could do that for me if you see it. Thanks so much.”
Una isn’t the first celebrity to have their face used for fake profiles or scam advertisements.
Stars such as Elaine Crowley, Tommy Bowe, Anna Daly and Miriam O’Callaghan have all dealt with similar situations too.
Most recently, Room to Improve host Dermot Bannon took to social media to blast a fake scam, which saw a fake account pose as his manager and contact his followers to offer them an opportunity to meet the celebrity architect.
