How’s this for irony: Barbara Brooks, the wife of Kix Brooks, received a Facebook message from a scammer posing as her husband.
Here’s what the message said (broken English, bad punctuation and all): “Hello, Thanks for the love and support you have shown me over the years. Thank you and God bless . . . I sent you a request on here because you are very beautiful woman I have been single for me because my ex cheat on me but with God all things are possible Are you single? if yes here is my private cell phone . send me a text message [number redacted] and i will get back to you.”
Barbara posted the news on Twitter with a screen shot of the Facebook message and the caption: “The irony of one of the @KixBrooks hackers sending this message to me is pretty hilarious.”

Kix Brooks isn’t the only country star dealing with scammers.
Recently, Chris Young published an Instagram post (see below) calling out “gigantic douche canoe” scammers, and Granger Smith covered the topic at length in his new podcast episode.
