Man im­pris­oned for cheat­ing girl­friend

China Daily (USA) - - CHINA -

A man who pre­tended to be a procu­ra­tor to cheat peo­ple out of money has been sen­tenced to 12 years in prison and fined 100,000 yuan ($15,000). When Cheng Duwei, a res­i­dent of Neix­i­ang county, en­tered a re­la­tion­ship early last year, he told his girl­friend he was a procu­ra­tor at Zhengzhou city procu­ra­torate. Be­tween Feb 25 and Sept 8 last year, Cheng cheated the girl’s mother out of 1.02 mil­lion yuan, say­ing he would use the money to buy a house for them in Zhengzhou. When the woman and her mother dis­cov­ered the de­cep­tion in Novem­ber, they re­ported Cheng to the po­lice, and he was de­tained on Jan 14.
