Netizens are ridiculing the lovely ‘Lust, Caution’ star (and sex doll muse) Tang Wei after she was reportedly cheated out of 210,000 (35,000 USD) yuan by Shanghai telecom swindlers.
According to Hug China, Tang was filming in Songjiang, Shanghai when she received the fraud phone persuading her to wire 210,000 yuan over at a local Bank of Communication outlet.
Police have recently urged people, specifically expats and gold-collar workers, to be extremely cautious following several reports of telecom-related scams. In November 2013, two expats in the Pudong New Area were swindled out of 24 million yuan (3.9 million USD), the largest scam case reported within Shanghai in several years.
According to the report:
While some netizens show sympathy with Tang Wei and condemn the swindlers, others are surprised that even their beautiful, clever and charming goddess could be swindled in such crude trick.
“Our goddess is so pure”! rediculed one netizen.
“Tang Wei proves to be a silly and naïve girl”! commented another.
Not even the beautiful people are safe.
