Identity thief cuts family off

THE family of a girl involved in an identity theft case is deeply concerned for her welfare. The family says the girl has not been in touch with them for some time.

Wang Jiajun, who worked in Guangzhou, capital of Guangdong Province, after graduation, was sacked by her employer after the identity theft was revealed, her family told Guangzhou Daily.

In her last calls to them, she did nothing but cry. Later she switched off her mobile phones and cut all communication with her family.
Wang Jiajun enrolled at the Guizhou Normal University in 2004 by stealing the identity of her classmate Luo Caixia, who had gained a higher score in the year's test.

Wang' father, a former senior police officer, Wang Zhengrong, allegedly helped his daughter.

A task force ordered yesterday by China's Public Security Minister Meng Jianzhu has traveled to Shaoyang City of Hunan Province to join the investigation, today's The Beijing Times reported.

The identity theft caused Luo, who was enrolled at Tianjin Normal University a year later, all sorts of problems getting a teaching license and graduation certificate.

An investigation group organized by the Hunan police has already been working on the case. The task force declined to disclose details about the investigation, but said it was collecting evidence and would publish the truth as soon as possible.

Wang Zhengrong, who was commissar of police in Shaoyang's Longhui County when the identity theft occurred, is now jobless and on probation over a corruption case which led him to be sacked in 2007.

He was sentenced to three years imprisonment but placed on probation for five years, according to an official surnamed Tang with Shaoyang Intermediate People's Court.

Luo wants compensation of 130,000 yuan (US$19,069.97).

Despite the case, Luo says in her blog that she never hated her classmate - adding that Wang Jiajun was suffering more than her now.
