An Important Message From Avenged Sevenfold: Please Report Facebook And Twitter Impostors.

Filed under: Avenged Sevenfold, Fans, News

Avenged Sevenfold have released a message urging fans to report any fake accounts of the band and it’s individual members on Facebook and Twitter. All official networks are listed as well.

Recently a number of fake Twitter and Facebook accounts have surfaced from impostors claiming to be members of Avenged Sevenfold as well as some family members and friends. These accounts (including some that have been wrongly “verified”) are NOT controlled by the band or anyone associated with the band, and should be ignored.

The only official A7X properties are the following:

Facebook:
www.Facebook.com/AvengedSevenfold

Twitter:
@vengenz1
@theofficiala7x

Instagram:
Theofficiala7x
the_real_6661

YouTube: www.youtube.com/avengedsevenfold

For the only accurate sources of all things Avenged Sevenfold please solely rely on these as anything else is inaccurate and in no way represents the band. Also beware of imposters appearing to be family members, wives and friends. Odds are if you dont know them personally then they are probably not real also. Please help get rid of these impostors by reporting them to the appropriate authorities. Instructions on how to do so can be found below.

Thanks for you help and continued support.

This is an official list of Avenged Sevenfold’s networks, not Avenged Sevenfold and family networks.

Comment by deathbatnews

There are not only fake accounts, but also many people saying a lot of bullshit and disrespectful things about their families. Just ridiculous what some people say.

Comment by Biah

This is including arins “twitter” right?

Comment by Amber

seems like they would have added it to this message if it was official.

Comment by joel

I’m not so sure it’s fake. I’ve seen Jinxx from Black Veil Brides (which is official) have a conversation with him on Twitter. Since he’s not technically a member of the band, I don’t think this applies.

Comment by Steven

that doesnt prove its a real account. ive seen fake accounts have their friends and people who work for them added. plus i would hope a 24 year old would be a little more mature than that twitter account comes off as.

Comment by joel

I’ve tried to report the fake Arin account, but it sayd that you have to be related to band or the person being impersonated to be alowwed to do that.

What about vengeance University?? Not listed and ummmmmm neither is Deathbat news for that matter…

Comment by Tina Ferro

vengeance university’s twitter is listed, as is their instagram. and deathbatnews is not an official member of the a7x team, this is a fansite.

I would rather it be thought of as a “fan run news site” :)

Comment by deathbatnews

I can’t believe those people…why would they do that.

Comment by Forever Avenged

Can the guys do something about the hate groups on Tumblr? The groups are directed at the wives/girlfriends and Tumblr won’t delete and ban them.

I’ve spread the word on these fake accounts, though, because far too may fans are being duped.

I’ve checked the Twitter thing, before, and it said that only the person being impersonated, or an official representative can report a fake.

Twitter don’t allow you to report an impersonator unless you are the person being impersonated or an official representative.
But, I’m glad they’re starting to speak out about this – the impersonators are getting out of control.
As for the Arin Twitter – That person is too immature, their English isn’t 100%, they swear far too much for it to be him and have been known to Tweet when the guys were obviously busy or other situations which seem unrealistic. They’ve also mentioned getting drunk/hungover a fair amount, too, and I know Arin likes a drink now and again, but is not a big drinker like this person makes out. Also, I spoke to a mutual friend of his who said it wasn’t really him.

Well then…

I unfollowed anyways, I forgot I had him on there from ages ago until this was brought up so I just wanted to ask. Thanks guys!
