(UPDATED) Instagram users beware, a fake Instagram account purporting to represent the Oprah Winfrey Network (OWN) is offering college scholarships to the first
50,000 100,000 followers (the eligibility threshold was increased after the account accumulated 50,000 followers within a few hours of opening).
OWN staff members have repeatedly stated that the account isn't affiliated with the network and OWN is not currently offering scholarships. Please don't aid and abet this scam by following or liking the account.
Update: The fake Instagram page disappeared when it was just shy of 100,000 followers, by which time a fake Twitter account had magically appeared.
Update: The fake Instagram page has cropped up again under a different handle.
