Unless @mayor_ginther is sliding into your DMs to thank you for being an upstanding citizen or “haha, aw”‘ing at your Insta story of your pup, it’s most likely, @mayor_ginther_ AKA an imposter.
A fake Instagram handle has been created to impersonate Columbus’ Mayor Andrew Ginther.
The account has been sending private messages to users about how to get $500,000 federal funding.
The feed is identical to Mayor Ginther’s verified account (though the fake one is shorter) but don’t be fooled.
Real account: @mayor_ginther
Fake account: @mayor_ginther_ (note the extra underscore)
