Con men de­frauded wife

China Daily (USA) - - CHINA -

Con men in Nan­jing have de­frauded a sus­pi­cious wife of 4,200 yuan ($630) by pos­ing as pri­vate de­tec­tives who promised to in­ves­ti­gate whether her hus­band was cheat­ing on her. The 40-yearold woman, sur­named Tan, hired the “de­tec­tives” to fol­low her hus­band and check on him. How­ever, the con men told her that she would need to pay an­other 20,000 yuan as hush money, oth­er­wise they would tell her hus­band that she was in­ves­ti­gat­ing him. Tan then called the po­lice, who have launched an in­ves­ti­ga­tion.
