SINGAPORE – Singer JJ Lin has issued an alert to fans about multiple fake online accounts impersonating him.
“Please note that there is only one verified account of JJ Lin across all social media channels and most importantly, under no circumstance will JJ solicit personal information or money from his friends, fans or members of (the) public,” he said in a statement on Monday (June 28).
The 40-year-old added that online scams are rampant and asked netizens to block and report fake accounts they come across.
He followed up with a series of Instagram Stories calling out the scam advertisements, including one with a headline “JJ Lin has experts in awe and big banks terrified”, and jokingly added: “Fake news. Please, I’m not that awesome.”
Actress Fann Wong, 50, has in recent days also seen her likeness misused to promote a blemish-lightening cream on social media.
