Chinese tycoon and philanthropist Chen Guangbiao claimed he had been awarded the title of "World's Most Prominent Philanthropist" by a UN organization, which was questioned as being fake.

According to Chen, he received an award from the president of the China Foundation for Global Partnership (CFGP), which was in support of the UN, on June 25, when he hosted a charity luncheon for poor and destitute Americans in New York City. The certificate reads, "Award to China's Moral Role Model and Number One Philanthropist Model Mr. Chen Guangbiao with the honorary title of 'Global Peace and Goodwill Ambassador and World's Most Prominent Philanthropist'."

However, on the certificate, the UN was spelled "United Nation" rather than "United Nations". And Chinese media and netizens didn't find any clue to connect the foundation to the UN.

The evidence led the public to question the authenticity of the award. Some netizens even said the award was created by Chen himself.

It seems that Chen's eye-catching show is endless. What do you think of this certificate? Do you think it is made by himself?

Kind of hard to claim most prominent philanthropist when your total networth is dwarfed by some living peoples actual donations. That said I'm sure he is doing some good work and should keep doing it. Just , please, stop being such a clown.

I will believe in Chen Guangbiao's philanthropy the minute he kills himself and bequathes his lucre  ...

You mean you live in poverty in China? failed to get rich... yet still insist to stay in Guangdong and refuse to leave?
