The impostor - with no connection to the Canadian star - pretended to be the rapper's manager and fuelled reports that his the lavish Los Angeles mansion was up for grabs for a cool $19,999,900, according to TMZ.
Real estate agent Alexei Pavlov apparently noticed the listing on U.S. property website Zillow, and contacted the 'manager' to ask if he could represent it commercially.
The impressive house features a grotto, home cinema, games room, spa/massage room, gym and library and was purchased by Drake $7.7 million back in 2012.
With the 'manager's' agreement, Mr Pavlov posted the property details onto the Multiple Listing Service, with the sale even being reported by the Los Angeles Times.
However, Mr Pavlov soon discovered the listing was false during another conversation with the 'manager' to firm up details of the listing.
Apparently the manager 'got aggressive and confessed it was a scam.'
