Woman held over deception
Xiao Li, a 25-year-old woman, who pretended to be four separate people to defraud a fellow villager, surnamed Li, of more than 210,000 yuan ($31,818), has been detained in Jiaxiang county. Xiao, who passed herself off as the daughter of a senior official in Jining city, told Li that she could help her find a job in an urban area. To win Li’s trust, Xiao called her and then pretended to be other people, telling Li that she had been recruited by a company. Li handed over a large sum of money, but later realized that he had been the victim of fraud and sought police help.
