Fake tax invoices targeted by police

CHINA'S police departments will launch a 30-day campaign starting today to hunt down fugitives suspected of having committed a crime known as fake-invoice fraud.

The campaign would have the code name "Spring Thunder," said Liu Jinguo, vice minister of Public Security.

While addressing a teleconference on Monday, the vice minister said: "As the Spring Festival is drawing near, the demand for fake invoices remains strong. Perpetrators will get on the move."

Statistics show that police across the country uncovered 237 cases involving fake-invoice fraud and detained 234 suspects in January.

They also destroyed eight large sites making and selling fake invoices, and confiscated more than 12 million fake invoices in the past month.

Fake-invoice vendors are common in Chinese cities, where they offer bogus receipts used for tax purposes.
