Fake prize draw con men de­tained

China Daily (USA) - - CHINA -

Two men have been de­tained in Ningbo city after they al­legedly ran a fake prize draw at a lo­cal agri­cul­tural bazaar. The men were ex­posed by a house­wife, sur­named Li, who lost more than 10,000 yuan ($1,450) in the draw. She told them she wanted to buy more tick­ets, and asked the pair to ac­com­pany her to a nearby bank so she could with­draw more money. Wor­ried that their fraud would be ex­posed, the two men made a break for it, but they were later de­tained fol­low­ing a po­lice in­ves­ti­ga­tion.
