Fake passport stamp man deported

A JAPANESE man has been caught carrying a passport with 104 fake Chinese entry-exit stamps at Pudong International Airport in what police say is the largest forged stamp case in the country.

Police declined to disclose the offender's name, but said he is in his 30s and was caught on Saturday after arriving on a flight from Tokyo.

When officers found that some stamps in his passport had "signs of erasure," the man was taken away for further investigation.

The man told police he provided a consulting service abroad and was eager to win business so he paid someone online more than 2,000 yuan (US$298) to produce the fake stamps.

He said that he wanted to make it look like he came to the country frequently and knew a lot about the Chinese market to help win a deal worth about 100 million yen (US$1.19 million).

The fake stamps made him appear to be a "frequent air traveler" who traveled between China and Japan more than 50 times within two years.

The man was fined 2,000 yuan and deported to Tokyo, local police said.
