Man jailed for selling personal info

A MAN in south China's Guangdong Province has been sentenced to 18 months in prison and fined 2,000 yuan (US$293) for selling personal information in the nation's first such case.

Zhou Jianping sold 14 lists of telephone numbers for government leaders to Lin Guiyu in December 2008 for 16,000 yuan, heard Xiangzhou District People's Court in Zhuhai City. Zhou set up Guangzhou Huatan Investigation Company in November, reported today's Guangzhou Daily.

With the list, Lin, together with other people including Shao Guosong, Li Binhai and Huang Yanwan, swindled 50,000 yuan from a relative of the vice mayor of Zhuhai City on February 2, 2009.

Shao and six others also swindled 830,000 yuan from relatives of five other government leaders from October 2008 to February 2009, claiming the officials were in urgent need of money.

The court also jailed Shao and his accomplices for between three and 11 years and fined them between 40,000 yuan and 150,000 yuan for swindling.
