If Robert Downey Jr. contacts you online and asks you to donate to a cause, don’t do it. It’s as fake as one of those “Nigerian prince” e-mails.
Downey actually posted a message saying, “I will never communicate via private chat platform. And I would never ask individual fans for money for any reason.”
“I am constantly humbled by the incredible love, support and generosity of our little community. Some want to take advantage of that, so let’s have each other’s back.”
