9 punished over high-profile P2P fraud
    2017-November-8  08:53    Shenzhen Daily

NINE executives of a Chinese online peer-to-peer (P2P) lender’s Guangzhou branch were sentenced Monday for cheating the public out of large amounts of money.

The defendants, convicted of illegally taking public deposits, were handed jail terms ranging from 18 months to four years, and given fines from 10,000 yuan to 150,000 yuan (US$22,500), according to a court in southern China’s city of Guangzhou.

The court found that the regional sales offices, set up by Shanghai Yushen Financial Information Service Company, had raised huge amounts of funds without a banking license by faking six high-yield investment products on the P2P platform Ezubao.

As of December 2015, more than 5,000 investors were cheated out of over 300 million yuan, according to the investigation.

In September, another 26 fraudsters, including Yushen Chairman Ding Ning, were sentenced in Beijing to terms ranging from three years to life imprisonment.
