Taipei, Feb. 16 (CNA) Eight suspects were arrested in connection with an alleged telecom fraud in which a Chinese professor was swindled out of more than 18 million Chinese yuan (US$2.62 million), Taichung police said Thursday.

Police said the professor, identified only by her surname Huang, 54, was targeted by the suspects in July 2016.

The alleged mastermind behind the group surnamed Liu and his accomplices posed as the prosecutor-general of the Supreme People’s Procuratorate, the highest national agency responsible for investigation and prosecution in the People’s Republic of China.

Police said some of the money was withdrawn using ATMs in Taiwan, while the remainder was transferred through online banks, with the IP address of the QQ account identified as being in Taiwan.    [FULL  STORY]
