Fraud ring smashed and 49 suspects detained

SHANGHAI police said they have busted a criminal ring that committed more than 60 frauds involving more than 5 million yuan (US$769,600) and have detained 49 suspects.

The gang registered a health product company and cheated people into buying their products. Then they would tell the victims that the company was looking for image representatives for their brand, police said.

Once tricked, the victims would pay money for so-called costumes or down payment at the company's request. If they grew suspicious, a company employee would disguise as the consumer rights protection officer and scrape the victims again.

Police are still investigating the case.
