Newsline: Fake ambassador’s daughter jailed in China

A 41-year-old Chinese woman has been jailed for two years for a marriage scam in which she claimed to be the 26-year-old daughter of a former ambassador and swindled money from a 23-year-old student. Xu Xiaoyun told Fan, a postgraduate student at Beijing’s Tsinghua University, she was the daughter of Qin Huasun, a former Chinese ambassador to the United Nations. They held a wedding ceremony in Fan’s hometown in central China’s Henan Province. Xu had repeatedly asked for a “cash gift” of 50,000 yuan before their marriage, which raised Fan’s suspicions. After the ceremony, he discovered that there was no Qin Ran, the name Xu used to trick him, at the university. He called police and Xu was detained.
