WKMG claims Sherrie Austin, of New Smyrna Beach, Florida, recently received a $3,000 fake check from a Blake Shelton imposter. She tells the TV station that the imposter contacted her on Twitter and Facebook and asked her to cash the check and then donate the money to charity. ”Being a fan of Blake Shelton, I was supposed to take the check, let it sit in my bank for three hours, cash it and then go donate it to one of his charities. He gave me a list of different countries. This was supposed to go to a charity in Canada. I’m trying to prevent this from happening to someone else. They play with your emotions, your feelings, but when they start asking you for money, honey, it’s fake.”
