    A Muscovite woman ended up being conned by a person who claimed to be a famous actor and star of superhero movies.

    An unidentified person posing as a British film actor Tom Hiddleston, who starred as the supervillain Loki in the Marvel Cinematic Universe, managed to trick a woman into giving up her hard-earned cash, a source in the Moscow police told Moscow City News Agency.

    According to the victim, she chatted with the artificial actor using Twitter and WhatsApp.
