On Friday morning, Princess Märtha Louise, 52, took to social media to warn her Instagram followers about the attempted scam.
“This is not my manager. Please report,” she captioned a screenshot of a private message she sent to her Instagram followers.
The scam attempt involves a fake user pretending to be Princess’s manager. The fake user contacted Instagram profiles following the princess to invite an exclusive chat with her.

However, this is not the first time the princess has been exploited in fraud attempts. According to her manager Karina Carlsen, Martha Louise has experienced other people pretending to be her numerous times.
– It’s very terrible and unkind, Carlsen told Netavisen at the time.
– There will be reports, but it is not easy to accomplish them. It is difficult for everyone who is exposed to this.
Recently, several Norwegian celebrities have warned about fake accounts and other scam attempts. Others include Katherine Fossum, Carina Dahl, and Far Stud. She is among many profiles that have been subjected to false advertising campaigns and scam attempts.
