Woman wanted to save ‘UN soldier in Afghanistan’
    2017-October-13  08:53    Shenzhen Daily

A 52-YEAR-OLD woman wanted to get a 100,000-yuan (US$15,181) loan to save a U.N. peacekeeper, but later realized it was actually a scam after being persuaded by police and bank staff, sznews.com reported.

The woman, surnamed Chen, works as a nanny in a Futian District family. In her leisure time, like many other young people, she likes to chat with friends on QQ, an instant messaging service.

In late August, Chen became acquainted with a netizen who called himself Joe on QQ. She was both surprised and excited when she learnt that Joe was a foreigner and a U.N. peacekeeper in Afghanistan.

Thanks to translation software and the Internet, language and distance were no longer barriers between the two, and as Joe spoke pleasingly affectionate words to Chen, she gradually fell for him.

One day, Joe suddenly sent some messages to Chen, claiming that he had been injured on duty, along with a picture showing him lying on a hospital bed surrounded by a doctor and another soldier.

Soon after that, he sent another message to Chen, saying that he had been badly injured and was in urgent need of medical treatment. Nevertheless, he didn’t have enough money.

On the morning of Oct. 9, Chen decided to go all out to save her beloved and went to the bank to get a 100,000-yuan policy loan. A bank employee asked Chen what the loan was for, but she could not make herself clear, which aroused the bank employee’s suspicions, leading him to report the situation to the bank and the police.

A policeman soon arrived at the bank and found that Chen was planning to transfer the money directly to a provided account.

Upon verification, it was discovered that the account had received transfers from across the country, with the money usually being transferred away in less than a minute. The police concluded that it was most likely an account used by a fraud gang.

After much persuasion, Chen finally became disillusioned and realized that she had almost been defrauded. The case is currently under investigation by the police. (Zhang Yu)
