HONG Kong actor Simon Yam’s management company has told netizens not to believe a viral message allegedly sent by him requesting financial assistance, China Press reported.
The company said the message was a scam to take advantage of an incident where Yam was stabbed in the stomach during a promotional event in China’s Zhongshan city in southern Guangdong province.
The message stated that Yam did not have his wallet with him and sought help from fans to raise 100,000 yuan (RM59,716) for an operation.
The management company said Yam was being treated in the hospital with the help of the provincial government.
“We will take care of Yam and hope the public will not believe the message,” added the company.
