Pawn­shop fraud­ster jailed

China Daily (Hong Kong) - - CHINA -

A man, sur­named Shu, who used gold-plated rings to de­fraud three pawn­shops in Dongcheng dis­trict of 18,000 yuan ($2,600) has been jailed for eight months. The court heard that Shu col­luded with two other men, sur­named Mao and Liang, to pawn the fake gold rings, which were val­ued at less than 150 yuan each, on Aug 30. Shu re­ceived 3,000 yuan of the ill-got­ten gains, but was de­tained while at­tempt­ing to de­fraud a fourth pawn­shop. Mao and Liang are still at large.
