Chinese daily reporter becomes victim of Facebook identity theft

Choo Tai Jie, a reporter for a Chinese daily, was shocked to find that someone has used his identity to open an account with a popular social network website and has made a police report.

He believes that the irresponsible party intentionally did so to tarnish his good name and discredit him as a reporter.

This news came to his surprise when a friend located a profile baring his name but felt suspicious as the background details were different.

Choo filed a police report at the Kuala Muda IPD and made a further complaint with the Communications and Multimedia Commission.
