Singapore actor and comedian Mark Lee expressed his disappointment and called out the online scammers who used his photo to make badly-edited photos of him looking like a hardened criminal.
He shared a few of the photos that he found, showing the scammers’ lack of effort in editing his face onto the photos of the criminals.
Posting on his Instagram story, Lee asked the scammers:
“I’m the most wanted criminal in the world? If you’re gonna photoshop my face, at least get an expert to do it. Surely people won’t believe this, will they? Let’s take a look at their wonderful creations!”
The first photo shows Lee being escorted by the FBI, with the caption: “Only 5% of Singaporeans know this,” and shows his head looking significantly smaller than his body.
Emblazoned across the photo was the title “A SCANDAL THAT SHOCKED THE WHOLE WORLD,” and “Mark Lee Kok Huang didn’t know the camera was still recording, is this the end of his career?”
Man’s looking like Jack Jeebs from Men In Black.
The original photo was from an article in 2014 where American gangster Vincent Asaro was arrested.
The second photo showed Lee standing handcuffed inside a courtroom, with the same headline emblazoned across the photo, and another subheader stating “Mark Lee didn’t know the camera was still recording.”
The original photo was from an Article from NBC news about former Chinese politician Bo Xilai who was convicted of embezzlement and bribery back in 2013.
The third photo showed Lee standing side by side with a couple of police officers, only difference is the skin tone of his face and his body not exactly matching.
Summing up his Instagram story, Lee told his followers “don’t believe them, I only have one Instagram account and it’s this one which is verified. Please don’t be scammed into buying or investing anything, these scammers are everywhere, everyone be careful. If you see them please report and block them.”
