It has come to J&R’s attention that a fan has been posing as a J&R employee. We take this VERY seriously and had our legal team look into it. Without much searching, it’s clear this person is Paul Boutchia.
Here is a screenshot of just some of the comments made on YouTube by the impersonating account: https://jbonamassa.com/temp/impersonation-p01.jpg
If you click on the username claiming to be “Joe B” and using the official J&R Adventures logo, it links to this YouTube account: https://www.youtube.com/user/PaulsZakk/
PaulsZakk. Just for further clarification, Paul Boutchia’s forum name was simply “Zakk”. That account has since been banned. If “PaulsZakk” isn’t enough of a hint, clicking on that users “VIDEOS” tab will show all videos liked by that imposter account. One of which is: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=78neaS5d3Yg “Warren Boutchia...”
The reason we’re going as far as posting this in the forum is because this kind of behavior is an attempt to undermine the credibility of Joe’s company, and we won’t allow that to happen. We, like Joe, love our fans and will work tirelessly to keep everyone entertained and safe. We have had issues with Paul many times in the past, but previously it only affected J&R. This is different. This is a fan attacking fans and we feel the Joe Bonamassa community needs to be aware of this.
