Students stranded after fake job scam

MORE than 100 students who traveled from Henan Province to Shanghai with the idea of earning some money during the holidays found they had been duped by an agency that promised them jobs and vanished with their money.

Some of the 112 students managed to head back to their home in Anyang, Henan Province, this morning, but the rest remained held up at the Shanghai Railway Station, waiting for help to arrive.

They said they were all university freshmen who came to the city to earn some money in the summer vocation. A Shanghai agency promised them jobs in the city. They paid 240 yuan as travel fee and another 150 yuan for accommodation.

About 6 male students "found" job as security guards through the agency and were told to report to work at 8am the next day. When they arrived the next day they were told that no such job was available.

Hongkou police is investigating the case.
