Saudi Arabia’s embassy in Lebanon released a statement warning that a person on social media posing as a royal calling himself as Talal bin Sultan is an imposter.
The imposter has been seen on social media platforms posing as a Saudi diplomat meeting with figures and attending events.
“The embassy would like to alert that this person is unknown and is not one of the sons of His Royal Highness Prince Sultan bin Abdulaziz – may God’s mercy be on him. The embassy also calls on whomever it may concern not to deal with this person,” a statement posted on the embassy’s twitter account read.
“The embassy has also begun to take all legal procedures to prosecute him and reveal his true identity to reveal the purpose of his impersonation and use of a fake name and harming whomever he contacts,” the statement added.
