Davone Besss is upset about his Twitter imposter

Fox = Foxsports.com

About how he called NFL security due to the impostor who twittered claiming to be Bess, Bess’ agent Kenny Zuckerman said:
“The Twitter site is a 100-percent fake. We have contacted all the proper authorities and plan to prosecute this impostor to the fullest extent of the law. Fraud is fraud and we are going to protect Davone and his reputation at any cost. He is very upset about this incident and wants everyone to know that he is the victim of an unfortunate scam.” (Fox)

Fox Note: “The con was first chronicled by Dolphins blogs that included thephinsider.com, finstache.blogspot.com and finheaven.com. Claiming he was Bess, “Lambo_Weezy” was “Tweeting” braggadocios statements — like challenging Tennessee running back Chris Johnson to a footrace — that belie the wide receiver’s humble personality. “Lambo_Weezy” even conducted an online chat posing as Bess through ustream.com. Thephinsider.com noticed Twitter posts from the fake Bess were being made while the real Bess was on the field participating in offseason practices. The web site alerted Zuckerman to the situation.”

NFL spokesman Greg Aiello said NFL security
“will get involved to help any NFL employee being victimized by impersonation.” (Fox)

Fox Note: “Dolphins security also is investigating the matter, team spokesman Harvey Greene said Monday night. The “Lambo_Weezy” Twitter account had 1,228 followers as of Monday afternoon.”

Fox Note: “But since Twitter doesn’t ask for identification proof to start an account, a bevy of imposters has emerged. A fake “Peyton Manning” — complete with a mug shot of the Colts quarterback and hometown listing of Indianapolis in the Twitter profile — has almost 14,000 followers. A bogus DeMarcus Ware “tweeted” that he was close to signing a contract extension, forcing the Dallas Cowboys outside linebacker to later disclaim the false posting. St. Louis Cardinals manager Tony La Russa sued Twitter because an impostor sent out derogatory statements under his name. A settlement was reached earlier this month.”
