Australian actor Hugh Jackman has taken to social media to issue a warning to his fans after finding scammers pretending to be him online.

The Oklahoma star told his fans to be wary of online accounts using his name and image that are requesting bank details.

“I have never and will never ask for your credit card [number], personal information, Social Security [number], bank information etc,” he wrote on his Instagram story.

“Please never give anyone your personal information. Be safe, love HJ.”

Jackman, 53, recently took to social media to share a touching tribute to his wife Deborra-Lee Furness, 66, as they celebrated 26 years of marriage.

“Today I celebrate 26 years of marriage to my extraordinary wife. Every single day is filled with so much laughter, joy and backgammon,” he wrote.

“Deb you light up my life. I love you with all my heart!”

People magazine reported Jackman tried to ignore his feelings for his now-wife by not speaking to her.

“Deb, she was a big star. I get picked up, and Deb is in the front seat of the car. I’ll never forget. She took off her seatbelt and she turned around and put out her hand and took off her sunglasses and said, ‘Hi, I’m Deborra-lee Furness, nice to meet you.’ I remember thinking, ‘I like this girl’,” he said.

“I invited 20 people [over for dinner]. She came over and I said, ‘Deb, give me a hand with the dessert.’

“She said, ‘I noticed you haven’t talked to me in like a week, what’s going on?’ I said, ‘I got a crush on you. I’ll get over it, I’m sorry.’ She goes, ‘Oh? Because I’ve got a crush on you too.’ I never in a million years thought she reciprocated.”

Jackman is currently in New York City performing his new broadway musical The Music Man.
