An accused Shanghai con-artist this week appeared before court after being charged with fraud and bigamy. The 45-year-old man is accused of stringing along four wives and cheating his victims of 4.1 million RMB, while posing as various high-ranking officials.
One of the man’s wives, who was tricked into handing over 2.6 million RMB, discovered her husband was an imposter when she discovered he did not own their apartment, but was only renting it, reports South China Morning Post.
After that, the man’s complex web of deception unravelled once it was revealed he was not a senior bank manager at HSBC or the partner of an exclusive yacht club, but actually a two-timing douchebag with three other wives and two children by other women.
The man’s fake business card. Perhaps he should have gone with “Eggshell with Romalian type”.
Seemingly not finished smearing his own name, the man continued to run his mouth in a television interview, producing more empty dribble as he attempted to exculpate himself:
“I have high ideas about love and emotion. I cannot tolerate the fact that the women around me are imperfect.”
Earlier this week, the Hunan cheat who was caught out when his 17 girlfriends showed up to his hospital ward was also arrested on fraud charges.
