Man Courts Girl with Stolen Money – Hers
A MAN in Shanghai’s Minhang District courted his girlfriend by buying her luxury goods but their affair ended when she found he was paying for the presents with money embezzled from her bank card, Shanghai Evening Post reported today.
The 24-year-old suspected fraudster, identified as Zhang Guyuan, was arrested over theft yesterday. Zhang admitted he had cheated the woman by pretending to come from a wealthy background, the report said.
"She revealed the password of her bank card inadvertently, and I took away the card secretly," Zhang told police.
Zhang was reported to have embezzled at least 50,000 yuan (US$6,562) from his girlfriend and most of the money was used to buy her gifts to please her.
