It’s a hoax! DreamWeaverGrey is not a murder suspect

Is DreamWeaverGrey luring women to their deaths over the internet? Does DreamWeaverGrey even exist? Is he a murder suspect? The answer to these questions is no. DreamWeaverGrey is not luring women to their deaths over the internet and DreamWeaverGrey does not exist. Therefor, he is not a murder suspect. There are people who use the screen name “DreamWeaverGrey” but none of them are wanted for murder.


A recent hoax claims that a person with the screen name DreamWeaverGrey is contacting people over the internet. The hoax claims that DreamWeaverGrey is a suspect for murder in the deaths of 56 women so far and that he uses the internet to contact them. The hoax further states that the DreamWeaverGrey has been seen on Yahoo, AOL, AIM, and Excite.

People who have been duped by the hoax have been copying and pasting text and messaging it to friends on social media. Here’s an example of the text:


State police warning for online: Please read this “very carefully”..then send
it out to all the people online that you know. Something like this is nothing
to be taken casually; this is something you DO want to pay attention to.

If a person with the screen-name of DreamWeaverGrey contacts you, do not
reply. DO not talk to this person; do not answer any of whispers or requests
for private in Pogo. Whoever this person may be, he/she is a suspect for murder in the deaths of 56 women (so far) contacted through the Internet.
Please send this to all the women on your buddy list and ask them to pass this on, as well. This screen-name has also been seen on Yahoo, AOL, AIM, and Excite so far.
This is not a joke! Please send this to men too…just in case! Send to
everyone you know! Ladies, this is serious.

There is no real purpose of this hoax other than to trick people. It is harmless; However, spreading false information does not do anyone any good. Remember to research stories like this before you spread information over the internet. Have you heard of someone who has killed 56 women on the news? You haven’t. This would be a big story. I advise you to think before you act and do some research. Your heart was in the right place, but your’e still spreading false information which can cause anxiety and fear to multiple people for no reason.

If you see someone named DreamWeaverGrey, ignore it. Do not contact the police or any information specialist.
