A fake account has been created on Snapchat in the name of Pakistani fast bowler Naseem Shah, who garnered international fame during the Asia Cup. He recently asked his fans to report the account so that it can be banned by the app.
On the photo and video sharing platform Instagram, where Naseem Shah has over a million followers, he recently posted a story informing followers of his fake Snapchat account.
Making fake accounts online using the names of well-known celebrities has become increasingly common. Anyone operating the account utilises the name of any popular or viral figure to get followers and likes, especially those without verified social media accounts.
The bogus Snapchat account made in the name of Naseem Shah has 976,000 followers as of now.
