China Daily (USA) - - CHINA -

A vic­tim of iden­tity theft in Shen­zhen claims 80 mil­lion yuan ($12 mil­lion) worth of debt has been run up in his name over the past four years through the il­le­gal use of his ID card. Liu Hant­ing said a num­ber of cred­i­tors, from banks to in­di­vid­u­als, have filed law­suits against him. Two men who used his ID card to spend more than 370,000 yuan on credit cards from a lo­cal bank have been de­tained, but Liu is still be­ing asked to re­pay other debts and re­peat­edly brought to court.
