Sometimes, scams do not just involve money but also identity theft. If the Queen was not even spared from being a victim of identity theft, does it imply that it’s just a matter of time before we fall victim to it?

Recently, the Facebook page Descentapp.xyz gained the attention of local badminton legend, Dato Lee Chong Wei as the organisation used & edited his image to market their products.

Dato Lee has made it clear that he has never been the spokesperson for the said product, which appeared to be Green Plum Fruit.

The caption of the altered images of Dato Lee holding the Green Plum Fruit reads,

“Long time no see. I am Lee Chong Wei. Are you a fan of green plum fruit? It’s famous in Singapore and Taiwan, and I’ve had a few of it recently.”

On his Instagram story last night, (the real) Dato Lee Chong Wei shared the screenshot of the fake post and urged people NOT to fall for it.

“The scammers are getting more powerful and out of hand recently. Many have been tricked. Don’t fall for it.”

According to the “official website”, the product is said to have a lot of health benefits, and the fresh green plums are handpicked from the garden. They even have images of a farmer handpicking the fruit to make it more convincing.

Regardless, the badminton legend himself has clarified that he is NOT the ambassador of the product, and the scammers are certainly “smart” to lure potential customers with the image of one of the iconic figures of Malaysia.

When shopping online, do be thorough with all the details of the manufacturers and the products before making any purchases.
