I hate to break the bad news, but the star of the Madea movie series Tyler Perry is not giving away money via Facebook or Twitter.

You might have seen several Facebook posts over the weekend of people sharing a post from someone claiming to be Tyler Perry saying if you share the post you will get FREE money.


Sadly that isn't true. Perry went to social media to warn people of these scams.

Remeber the old adage, if it sounds too good to be true...chances are that it is a scam!
