In October 2013, a Chinese real estate developer, Tan Youhui offered a contract killer (Hitman #1) $280,000 to murder his competitor, Mr. Wei … who had recently filed a lawsuit against him. Hitman #1 pocketed half the money and subcontracted the job to another killer (Hitman #2), for $140,000. Hitman #2 followed suit and offered a lesser amount to Hitman #3. Hitman #3 skimmed a chunk of that money for himself and offered even less to Hitman #4. Hitman #4 did the same, presenting Hitman #5 with a measly 5% of the original amount ($14,000). Hitman #5 got cold feet and contacted Mr. Wei – offering to help him fake his death. The two men staged the murder and Hitman #5 sent the pictures to #4 who sent them to #3, and so on! At the same time, Mr. Wei contacted the police who arrested all the hired guns, as well as the real estate developer. Tan was sentenced to 5 years and each of the hitmen received between 2 and 4 years of jail time. What does this have to do with Match and Fable’s latest role? Nothing really.
