Lucifer's Tom Ellis offers bleak warning to fans as they're bombarded by scams from fake accounts

LUCIFER'S Tom Ellis has offered a bleak warning to fans after they were bombarded by scams from fake accounts.

The 42-year-old actor plays the titular Lucifer in the Netflix series, and released a stark warning to his fans via his Instagram account.

Tom advised fans to be careful after some had been exploited by scam accounts pretending to be him.

In a statement to his 8.9 million Instagram followers on Tuesday, he wrote: "I have said this once but I’ll say it one last time because apparently people are still falling for this.

"I have never used any account other than my official Twitter TomEllis17 or my official Instagram OfficialTomEllis, both of which have blue tics to verify that it is me.”

He added to fans that he does not use Gmail, Facebook or Hangouts, so they shouldn't respond to anyone saying they are him on those platforms.

This isn't the first time Tom has had to issue such a bleak warning.

Back in 2017 he had to tell fans to block an account which was posing as him and trying to scam money from people.

He wrote: "Please don’t give money to this fake account. It’s not me.”

Last month, Tom posted a much happier message on social media, leaving fans thrilled as he shared a picture of himself working out.

Taking to Instagram, the actor revealed that his personal trainer had been putting him through his paces as he got ready to return to set for series six.

Tom Ellis showed off his sculpted torso in a skintight t-shirt, while he also wore a mask, gloves, white shorts and trainers.

"Getting back with Paolo Mascitti," he wrote alongside the post, tagging his trainer.

Lucifer is available on Netflix.
