A FAKE Twitter account has been set up in the name of Harrogate and Knaresborough MP Andrew Jones.
It has attracted followers among local businesses, charities and individuals – but the cyber scammer has not posted any tweets.
Mr Jones said: “It is very unsatisfactory that someone can impersonate you by taking your identity so easily. They could be saying anything as though they were you.”
The account was set up using his publicly-available email account and will shortly be closed down.
