Singaporean actor Gurmit Singh has alerted the public to a fake advertisement that is using his face without his permission. The ad, which is being circulated on social media, features a photo of Singh with a headline that reads, “He made an important statement. Now he’s lost his career.”
The ad then encourages viewers to click on a link to learn more. However, when users click on the link, they are taken to a fake website that is designed to look like a legitimate news website. The website then prompts users to enter their personal information, such as their name, email address, and credit card number.
Singh has warned the public not to click on the link or enter any personal information on the fake website. He has also urged his fans to report the ad to social media platforms so that it can be taken down.
This is not the first time that scammers have used Singh’s face in a fake ad. In 2022, Singh shared news of a similar incident on social media. In that case, the ad featured a photo of Singh with a caption that read, “A scandal that shocked everyone.”
Singh’s case is a reminder that scammers are constantly coming up with new ways to trick people. It is important to be vigilant and to be aware of the latest scams. If you see an ad that seems too good to be true, it probably is. Do not click on any links or enter any personal information until you have verified that the ad is legitimate.
Here are some tips to avoid being scammed:
- Be wary of ads that seem too good to be true.
- Do not click on links or enter any personal information on websites that you are not familiar with.
- Hover over links to see where they actually lead to before clicking on them.
- Be careful about what information you share on social media.
- If you are unsure about the legitimacy of an ad or website, contact the company or organization that is being advertised.
If you think you may have been scammed, report it to the authorities immediately.
