Guo Meimei, a woman who became famous after she boasted online about her personal wealth, and her parents had no direct connections with the Red Cross Society of China (RCSC), the Beijing public security bureau announced on Thursday on its official microblog.

Guo admitted that she does not know any staff from the RCSC and has never worked there and only knew a businessman surnamed Wang, who was in a partnership with the Commerce Sector Red Cross, an organization affiliated with the RCSC, the statement said.

Guo opened an account on Sina Weibo claiming to be the "general manager of the Red Cross Chamber of Commerce" to raise her online social position and flaunt her wealth to others.

Guo expressed regret during interrogation, it added.
