ALBANY, GA (WALB) - A second victim has come forward regarding a fake Luke Bryan Facebook page we told you about earlier this month.

The man we spoke to Sunday says he was contacted by a someone named Jason Bowen who claimed he was touring with the famous country music singer, song writer. Similar to the last case, it turns out, it was all hoax.

Alan Flowers says through that fake Luke Bryan Facebook page, he was offered a job as Bowen's body guard, but that never happened.

This 6'11" 300lb Albany native says he won't be happy when he finds out who was at the bottom of this.

"He'll need a body guard. Whoever it is," said Flowers.

Flowers says back in January, Jason Bowen told him through Facebook he needed a body guard for his tour with Luke Bryan. Turns out it was all Bogus.

"I don't know what I'm going to do," Flowers added. "It seemed pretty legit to me."

He had several facebook conversations with Bowen. In one message, he offered Flowers a starting salary of $15.50 an hour, not bad for the father of two who was laid off in December.

"I Jumped on it and said why not?" Flowers noted. "It was a better future for my family. We've got two kids. Right now it's hard."

He was supposed to fly up to Michigan Friday, February 11 to meet Bowen and start touring with him and Luke Bryan. Those plans fell through.

"I found out I was no longer flying up there when when it first aired on WALB," Flowers said. "I heard it was a scam."

He tried calling Bowen who gave him a number with a Tennessee area code. That no longer works.

"I've been trying to call three or four times after that," Flowers added.

Flowers just hopes others will see this story and be weary of other Internet pranks. Since our stories exposed the fake Luke Bryan page and Jason Bowen's page, they were taken down.  

Earlier this month, we reported a Florida man quit his job after being invited to tour with who he believed was Luke Bryan. It wasn't

Right now, as far as we know, police are not investigating this case. No charges have been filed against the man who claims to be Jason Bowen. We'll keep you updated on any further developments.
