Actor Tom Hanks recently took to social media to alert his followers to a bogus advertisement that used a faked image of himself. The ad was a marketing ploy for a product that falsely claimed Hanks was endorsing it.
Hanks advised his followers to be cautious and not believe everything they read online. He clarified that he has never recommended any such product and that any advertising that suggests differently is false. He also asked his followers to report to the proper authorities concerning any inaccurate advertisements.
