    I own a relatively big and active Facebook page related to basketball and it has 413k likes with 1-2k new likes every day. It is page of one basketball player and an hour ago, I got contacted by the head coach of the team this player plays for. He wrote this:

    • Erik Spoelstra
      • Hi, I am Head Coach of the Miami Heat, and I have concerns about your page. May you please reply and I will get back with you as soon as possible, or contact our Miami Headcorders and ask for Erik 1-800-660-1066.

        Thank You.

      • We are merging this page with our Miami Heat Official Page, but I noticed you worked hard on this page so we would like to make it fair to you. Reply with any concerns

    After I asked him to prove me that he really is the coach (because I highly doubt that a HEAD COACH would use FACEBOOK for this purpose since he is busy with other stuff, it's not like he's in media relations or something...), he sent this:

    I came to you with only one interest, I didn't come to prove my identity, I can do so much as tell you yes I'm who I say I am. And before we take the next step in merging your page we offer you an opportunity to work for the Miami team.

    If you ask me, this looks like a bluff and scam. But still, I am not 100% sure that I am safe because I think I have heard some stories of people getting their page merged into some other pages. His profile is 100% secret and you cannot even add him. He has a photo you could find anywhere on the internet, no cover photo, some basketball-related likes etc.

    What do you guys think?

    Just ignore it. If they really have an issue with it, you wouldn't be contacted by the coach of the team, you'd get a letter in the mail from a lawyer.
