7 express delivery firms fined

Seven express delivery and online shopping companies have been fined 2.14 million yuan (US$315,436) for cashing in on fake promotions and fabricating sales figures, the city’s market watchdog revealed yesterday.

These were among 10 typical cases busted by the city’s market regulators last year and exposed by the Shanghai Administration for Market Regulation yesterday.

UC Express, LBEX and Honglou Express, all registered in Shanghai, were found selling fake express bill numbers via their outlets and showing fake express delivery information on their websites, the Fengxian District Administration for Market Regulation said.

Shanghai Kuaihe Internet Science and Technology Co purchased the fake information and then sold it to its members, who are online store operators, for 1 or 2 yuan for each number, the administration said.

These online shop operators recorded the fake express bill numbers on shopping platforms like Taobao and JD.com to inflate their sales figures.
