Sasaeng fan arrested for scamming money to follow EXO
A 21 year old fan has been arrested by police after conducting nine fraudulent transactions online to stalk EXO.
Nam, dubbed a ‘sasaeng fan’, rented expensive camera equipment and pretended to put them on sale online, without actually sending the products. She earned just about $4,600 USD and did not return the camera back to the rental store.
A sasaeng fan is a person who spends their time following their favourite celebrities and tracking their activities.
When police asked why she scammed people online, she explained that she needed money to follow her favourite group, EXO.
It is reported that she lost her parents and is an unemployed high school graduate. She regularly stays at a cafe near EXO’s dormitory, instead of her home. She is currently in custody awaiting to receive charges.
