JOHANNESBURG - An article sent to 702's John Robbie on Tuesday this week claimed South African-born actor Arnold Vosloo had died in a car accident.

This is untrue.

After his sister called into the show to confirm it was in fact a hoax, Robbie spoke to Vosloo himself, who is alive and well in the United States.

"I apologise to all my fans who might have clicked onto this horrible website and got a virus. That's now how you want to catch something from me." Vosloo joked.

He says the hoax happened a few months ago and even alleged that singer Willie Nelson and actor Don Johnson were dead.

"It's either Indian or Russian based, security tells us, and it's basically a way to phish," he says.

He says those responsible for this hoax target certain countries. "In this case, South Africa."

He says, "Somebody was aware of my name value there and put out a story that I'd died and when you click on it, that's how they steal your information."

Listen as 702's John Robbie speaks to Arnold Vosloo about a recent hoax that he died in an accident.

Vosloo is known for his roles as Imhotep in The Mummy and The Mummy Returns, Pik van Cleef in Hard Target, Dr Peyton Westlake/Darkman in Darkman II and Darkman III, and Zartan in GI Joe.
