Two pose as foreigners to con women

TWO men have been detained by police after posing as overseas Chinese and swindling more than 60,000 yuan (US$8,790) in cash and valuables from six young women in separate cases.

The two surnamed Lu and Zhu argeted women in their 20s at local Metro stations, police told today's Shanghai Morning Post.

They approached the women and asked to borrow money, saying that because they were from Singapore their bank cards would not work in local ATMs. They also showed fake Singaporean ID cards to convince the women.

They pretended to call "an uncle" to transfer the amount to the women's accounts. Of course, the money never arrived.

Police found the "uncle" was a woman, who was also detained. All the three were Chinese citizens.
