According to one exclusive media outlet, a male idol-turned-actor who is currently in his thirties turned himself in, confessing to crimes of voice phishing scams. The suspected individual visited Yeoju Police Station in Gyeonggi Province back on June 16 KST and confessed, "I received a total of 6 million won from the victim of my voice phishing scam."

After suffering from financial difficulties, the suspected individual revealed that he noticed a high paying job position while scrolling through the internet. He began working there but soon realized that it was a voice phishing job, to which he immediately looked for the police to confess. Since receiving the individual's confession, the police have arrested three more affiliated accomplices.

It was later confirmed that an actor from the idol group FT Island turned himself in to the police after taking part in a voice phishing crime.

The Gyeonggi Nambu Police Agency's anti-corruption and economic crime investigation team announced on the 12th that they had booked actor A without detention on charges of fraud.

According to the police, A is suspected of receiving 6 million won from. B, a voice phishing victim, in Gyeonggi-do on the 16th of last month and trying to deliver it to another cash collector.

Person A, who was experiencing financial hardship, started working after seeing an article on the Internet saying 'There is a high-paying part-time job', but after this incident, he realized the responsibility of collecting the money of the voice phishing organization and surrendered to the police.

Person A was a member of the famous idol group FT Island and has been working as an actor after leaving the group.
