Scammer tries to cheat woman out of $1,800 by posing as Li Nanxing

A scammer allegedly created a fake Instagram page posing as local actor Li Nanxing and tried to cheat a female fan out of $1,800.

The 53-year-old artiste shared screenshots on his Facebook page on May 24, showing how an Instagram follower had warned him of the fake account impersonating him.

非常感激这位粉丝!以上是我们的对话,我要再次声明 @lnxglobal_personal 不是我的帐户,请大家要小心!

"Thank you very much to this fan! Here is our conversation, I would like to clarify again that @lnxglobal_personal is not my account, everyone please be careful!" wrote Li, whose official Instagram page is @lnxglobal_official.

Li's manager told Shin Min Daily News in a report on May 26 that the scammer had tried to borrow $1,800 from a fan.

"Luckily the female fan was alert and felt that it was suspicious for Li Nanxing to be borrowing money from her," she said.

"She asked the person: 'If you are Li Nanxing, take a video for me.'

"This scared the person off."

The fake Instagram page, a private account, is still active as of today (May 28), with four posts and 63 followers.
