Paige Spiranac had a complex summer. The golfer said she no longer felt safe after a few incidents that happened to her during the American Century Championship. The episode in particular would involve a fan who approached her with the excuse of taking a picture of her.
She told: "Apparently this man was scammed into a fake profile created by someone with my name. It was a very scary situation and luckily I had my team there who helped me figure out what was going on. I have a dealing with these security issues for a while and in the last few months things have gotten worse.
These men get scammed by fake profiles, fake numbers in my name and then they contact me and they are very hostile, very angry because they have been scammed for a lot of money. The scariest part is the fact that all these profiles are anonymous and it's hard to find out who these people really are.
I've gotten to the point where I'm going to go to events and not post my location. I don't post where I am because I'm afraid that someone turns up as happened at the ACC."
