The company estimates that the investment recovery possibility is very small. A loss of 69 million yuan was recognized.

No endorsement without signing a contract, no need to apologize?
Du Haitao's studio mentioned in the statement that "the endorsement contract has not been signed directly", only that there has been advertising cooperation with the advertising agency. Is Du Haitao the spokesperson of Netlibao?
In this regard, Zhao Zhan, deputy director of Beijing Zhilin Law Office, told reporters from China News that the stars advertise this product, some clearly indicate the advertising spokesperson, and some do not clearly indicate the advertising spokesperson, but through video or pictures The way to directly promote a certain product is usually the nature of an advertising spokesperson.
"Just like young people will buy products because of celebrity endorsements, ordinary people think that there is a celebrity endorsement or advertising is reliable. Only celebrities can only get endorsement fees and advertising fees without paying any responsibility. Isn't this a profit? The benefits are for you, and the risks have nothing to do with you." Some netizens said so.
Tianyan check shows that the affiliated company of Netlibao is Netlibao Company of Beijing Netli Technology Co. Ltd.

Carding found that in addition to Du Haitao and Wang Han, in recent years, many stars have turned over because of endorsements or advertising for P2P. For example, Huang Xiaoming once endorsed East Hongqiao Finance under Kuailu Group, and later the East Hongqiao Finance appeared to be overdue; 88 Fortune Parent Company Zhongke Chuang Group, where pianist Lang Lang once endorsed, was suspected of self-financing; Tang Yan, Li Xiang, Qu Ying, Actresses such as Zhong Liti and Hu Jing played advertisements for the accidental E Zoubao.
What is the responsibility of celebrities for endorsement of advertising products?
From the current legal point of view, it is difficult to hold the celebrity spokesperson accountable. "The responsibility of celebrity endorsement advertising P2P needs to be determined in accordance with the specific facts and circumstances." A lawyer from a well-known law firm in Beijing told CNN reporter.
"It depends on whether the content of the advertisement is true. If the content of the advertisement is false, the celebrity shall bear joint and several liability." Zhao Zhan said, "If the recommended wealth management product has been used by oneself, one has to prove that it has been used, and if it cannot be proved, It is also illegal, and it also bears joint and several liability."
According to the statement of Du Haitao Studio, before the cooperation, he reviewed the relevant operating qualifications of Netlibao and registered to use its products.
However, "when financial products are suspected of criminal law-related crimes, advertising spokespersons may become accomplices of corresponding crimes if they have a "knowledge"." The above-mentioned lawyer who did not want to be named said that the Supreme People's Court Article 8 of the Interpretation of Certain Issues of Specific Application of the Law stipulates that if the star knows that the P2P platform illegally absorbs public deposits or raises funds for fraud and still promotes its advertisements, it may constitute a false advertising crime and may be sentenced to less than two years in prison or Detention, concurrent or single fine.
"If the star does not know that the advertisement is false and does not know the company's product defects, then under the current legal framework, there is no need to bear legal responsibility." The lawyer said. (Finish)
