If you're friends with the president of Guyana on Facebook you may have been conned. A fake has claimed the throne on the peer networking site and the real man in charge isn't very happy about it.
The BBC reports that President Jagdeo is not a member of Facebook.
But on Facebook someone set up an account saying they were Jagdeo. The page is complete with pictures of the president posing with international leaders.
Three people ahve posted messages to the page, one of which is questioning if the profile was authentic.
This isn't the first time President Bharrat Jagdeo has had someone pretend to be him. Another social networking site was also a fake.
Last year a man from Morocco was jailed for setting up a Facebook account posing as a member of the royal family.
Facebook has also had to remove two other fake profiles of Bilawal Bhutto, son of the murdered Pakistani politician Benazir Bhutto after an investigation found that the entries were not real.
