Man out­smarts fraud­ster

Global Times – Metro Beijing - - INTEL -

On March 15, a car owner sur­named Liu was no­ti­fied via tele­phone that his car would be tick­eted for il­le­gal park­ing. The caller also said that if Liu gave him 100 yuan ($14.5), he would not ticket his ve­hi­cle. Liu re­fused, and the caller dis­ap­peared, the Bei­jing Morn­ing Post re­ported.

Liu said the caller did not iden­tify him­self as a po­lice of­fi­cer or park­ing lot man­age­ment staff and told him to he would col­lect the money by Liu’s car. Liu said he agreed to move his car, but re­fused to pay the “fine” un­less he saw proper iden­ti­fi­ca­tion. No one was at his car when Liu ar­rived, and his car had not been tick­eted. He then called the po­lice who told him that it was a fraud­ster tar­get­ing car own­ers.
