While the public is still grieving the death of Paul Walker, a phony decided to use the tragedy to create a Facebook account disguised as the late actor's daughter Meadow Walker.

Sunday morning, the day after it was reported that the "Fast and Furious" star died in a car crash, the phony Meadow Facebook page paid homage to the 15-year-old's father with a sentimental post.

"When I was little he taught me to walk, taught me to smile, and taught me to never give up," read the post. "I loved him even before I knew what love was. He was my hero. My REAL life hero! He will always be in my heart! It brings tears to my eyes as I write this. You’re gone, but not forgotten! R.I.P Dad!"

The note was accompanied with a picture of a younger Meadow with her dad.


Later, TMZ revealed that in actuality Meadow does not have a public social media page. Thus, the account was made by nothing but an impostor.

Facebook soon removed the account by the request of Paul's reps.

The world lost the infamous hunk Saturday afternoon in the Southern California town of Santa Clarita in a single car accident.

Paul sat passenger seat in a two-seater Porshe Carrera GT while his friend drove. Both lost their lives when the convertible exploded after the driver lost control and crashed into a tree.

The deceased 40-year-old actor was in Santa Clarita for a car show he sponsored with his charitable organization "Reach Out Worldwide," a group that supports the Philippines typhoon relief effort.
