Actor, John Dumelo suggested a quick test for the public to know whether the people they chat with in his name are real or fake. He posted on Facebook:

"Word of advice...if you feel you are talking with any john Dumelo on what's app, viber or Skype please just ask that person to do one thing. He should write your name on a piece of paper, put it up across his chest and take a picture and send to you. I have not asked anyone for money for my foundation or to produce a movie. If anyone asks you for money in the name of john Dumelo on what's app or Skype or viber, he is fake! Just ask him to write your name and take a picture and let him send it to you. Thanks"
