It was recently reported that K-pop singer and actress Suzy has fallen victim to identity theft. However, what makes this case even more curious is that the theft occurred not in Korea, but in India of all places! Curious? Read on to find out more!
On Wednesday, May 18, singer and actress Suzy's (Bae Su Ji's) photo was found amongst the belongings of a group of suspected criminals in India when their things were confiscated and examined. The photo was seemingly used to open a bank account, and when asked by police about the document, the criminals admitted to finding the picture of Suzy online and using it to open a fake bank account.
While Suzy's agency, JYP Entertainment, stated, "We believe that this happened because Suzy is a well known celebrity and her picture can be easily found on the internet," the agency also went onto clarify that, "since this happened in India, we are still trying to find out the details."
As JYP continues to wait for answers from the Indian police/government, we will also have to wait and see how all of this plays out.
