Pen­sioner swin­dled in medicine scam

China Daily (USA) - - CHINA -

A 76-year-old man in Ji­nan spent all of his sav­ings and pen­sion funds, to­tal­ing 180,000 yuan ($27,000), on buy­ing so-called mir­a­cle medicine to cure his wife, who suf­fers from di­a­betes, but later found he had been swin­dled. The man, sur­named Na, re­ceived a call in mid-May from some­one sell­ing medicine for the treat­ment of di­a­betes, who knew Na, his wife’s names as well as her med­i­cal con­di­tion. Na was per­suaded to buy large amounts of the “medicine”, but be­came un­able to con­tact the sell­ers af­ter all his sav­ings were gone, which is when he re­ported the case to the po­lice.
