Scams alert for entrance examinations

STUDENTS and parents involved in this year's national college entrance examinations are being warned of the sales of fake test papers and cheating devices.

A test alert issued by the Ministry of Education said police have found four cases nationwide and caught 22 people involved over the past weeks, today's Beijing News reported.

The examination will be held this month.

The alert said some of those arrested were selling fake test papers or cheating devices.

The ministry also warned students and their parents not to try cheating. Anyone caught will face tough penalties including being denied enrollment for this year and being disqualified from next year's examination.

According to the alert, police in northeast China's Jilin Province swooped on two gangs selling cheating devices late last month. Twenty people were caught.

A man surnamed Sun was caught on May 31 by Hunan Province police selling test papers and answers on Websites. He told police had assembled the papers online as he had no authentic papers.

Police in Fujian Province caught a man surnamed Chen on June 2 who sold fake answers to this year's exams and cheating devices. The answers were all fake as Chen was also unable to access authentic papers.
