His fans responded with thanks and support. One responded, “Don’t worry Maurice..🙏it will be handled and people should know better,” and one fan wrote, “Someone tried to get 2500.00 from me didn’t happen 👍.” It’s not clear if that person was scammed by someone impersonating Maurice or someone else.
Unfortunately, one fan already had a painful online encounter: “I was scammed by someone here on Instagram minutes after joining. I didn’t know what was happening until after my student loan money started missing from my bank account. I closed my bank account and reported it to the FBI. But I haven’t heard anything from them about it. So, don’t know if they caught the scammer. 😡.”

Maurice’s alter ego has been busy lately and he has his hands full both professionally and personally. Sonny is coping with the death of his beloved father Mike Corbin (Max Gail) and dealing with a potent enemy in Cyrus Renault (Jeff Kober). Is Sonny about to be tag teamed by a double trouble dream team of Cyrus and Julian Jerome (William deVry)?
