How Days Of Our Lives Star Peter Reckell Fell Victim To A Social Media Scam

Peter Reckell has been one of the most popular soap opera stars since making his debut on "Days of Our Lives" as Bo Brady in the early 1980s (via Soap Central). The character of Bo quickly became a favorite among viewers, and after he was paired with Kristian Alfonso's Hope Williams, the duo became an iconic super couple. Together, Bo and Hope went through many ups and downs in their relationship. However, they always seemed to prevail. Sadly, in 2015, Reckell decided that he wanted to officially end his soap opera career and the character of Bo was killed off, marking one of the saddest death in the show's history

Reckell admitted that he wanted to spend more time with his family. "As significant as Bo Brady is to me as an actor, being her father is much more important," the actor said at the time, per Soap Opera Spy. Fans were devastated to see the character of Bo exit Salem. However, viewers got their wish to see Bo again in 2022. Reckell signed on to star in Season 2 of the soap's spin-off series "Beyond Salem" (via TVLine). The five-episode limited series was a huge hit among viewers and left fans with a wild cliffhanger that seemed to bring Bo back to life.

Now with the popularity of his character rising yet again, Reckell has found himself the target of online scammers.

Peter Reckell issues a warning to his fans

Recently, Peter Reckell took to his Twitter account to share some important information with "Days of Our Lives" fans. The actor claimed that while he loved seeing all of their tweets, he had to warn them about an online scammer. "A reminder, I do not have a Facebook page, I never have, there's someone out there impersonating me, asking for money, so please don't be conned by this person. I am having a difficult time getting rid of them," he wrote.

Fans immediately began to speak out in support of Reckell, and one Twitter user even pointed out that the same situation was happening to the actor's on-screen wife, Kristian Alfonso, as well. Reckell's wife, Kelly Moneymaker, also used her social media platform to warn fans of the scam. "We have a skilled Peter Reckell impersonator taking advantage of people and stealing our intellectual property & personal photos/videos. Please report this FB imposter so @peterreckell can post an OFFICIAL one," she tweeted.

Unfortunately, Reckell has had to deal with people impersonating him before, per Soap Central. Hopefully, "Days of Our Lives" fans will get the message and not be conned by the imposter.
