Scams tar­get Dis­ney fans, job seek­ers

China Daily (Canada) - - NEWS CAPSULE -

A num­ber of scams have sur­faced in con­nec­tion with the open­ing of the Shang­hai Dis­ney Re­sort on June 16.

Me­dia re­ports in the city said a fake web­site mim­ick­ing the re­sort ho­tel site had ranked among the top search re­sults. But when a re­porter called the web­site num­ber to re­serve a room, she was asked for her credit card de­tails, in­clud­ing the three-digit se­cu­rity num­ber, and her mo­bile phone and ID num­bers, ac­cord­ing to kankan­news.com.

Con­sumers were warned not to re­veal such key in­for­ma­tion as the se­cu­rity num­ber.

In the past two months, at least 200 people claim­ing they could pro­vide job op­por­tu­ni­ties at the park have been ex­posed by po­lice.
