(ABC13) — HOUSTON (KTRK) — A woman in Clear Lake wants Houstonians to be aware of a Facebook scam after she said she was targeted by someone claiming to be Lakewood Church Pastor Joel Osteen.
Paula Dupre said she received a message on Facebook Sunday night from a Facebook account called "Pastor - Joel Osteen."
"Asking me if I was a true Christian, did I believe in the Christ Jesus," Dupre said, "And I wrote back, yes."

After that, the real motive behind the message was revealed. The imposter told Dupre that a big Texas donor had given Osteen Ministries $35,000 -- and that money could be hers.
