CHICAGO (CBS) — Imagine your favorite celebrity reaching out to you on social media. At first you’re thrilled, but this brush with greatness can soon take a sinister turn.  One that is costing people millions of dollars.   CBS 2 Investigator Pam Zekman reports.

Perhaps no other singer epitomizes the “glory days” of 1980’s rock ‘n roll like Bruce Springsteen.

“I have been loving Bruce Springsteen since the 80’s, ever since i heard him and I thought, oh this guy is so handsome and has a good voice,”  said “Mary” who asked us to conceal her identity.

“Mary” said she commented on a Bruce Springsteen Facebook and got a message back from Bruce.
