Smartphone maker HTC Corp (宏達電) declined to comment on a report that its founder, Cher Wang (王雪紅), has been defrauded by members of her church.
The Chinese-language World Journal, published in the US, cited US court papers as saying that Wang was cheated out of US$7.4 million.
The US Attorney’s Office, Northern District of California, said in a news release that between 2004 and last month, Jonathan Chang (常如武), 60, and his wife, Grace Lee Chang (李薇林), 57, had defrauded a donor.
Although the news release did not identify the donor, media reports said that the donor was Wang. [FULL STORY]
