突发:美国藤校留学生涉诈骗被捕

布朗大学发言人布莱恩•克拉克(Brian Clark)表示,该校周三获悉了这起逮捕事件。说大学将“在大学政策的背景下审查此事件,并确定可能需要采取临时措施...... ”

罗德岛常春藤名校布朗大学的中国留学生李世帅 (Shishuai Li,音译 ) 24日被警方以涉嫌诈骗金钱罪名逮捕。25日在罗德岛普维斯顿法院,被法官下令交出护照,以3000元交保。

据美联社报导,李世帅是布朗大学电脑系研究所一年级的学生。他被控谎称要为杜拜的贫困儿童开办学校,骗取佛罗里达州一名老妇3万元。警方认为,李世帅与专门针对女性行骗的非洲尼日利亚网络诈骗集团合作诈欺。

李世帅涉嫌在以年龄多为50岁以上的约会网站上寻找交友对象,找年长女性聊天。谎称自己是住在佛罗里达州的60多岁男子,要为杜拜贫童募款建学校。

国土安全部门去年11月1日,在美国银行通报李世帅的帐户有笔18.1万元的进帐后,开始调查。11月27日,发现该帐户又有一笔来自奥兰多市转进的3万元。

这名74岁佛州的老妇告诉警方,她在Ourtime.com 交友网站遇见这名叫Luiz的“60多岁佛州男子”。听信他要为杜拜贫童等款建校后,汇钱给他。

警方报告中指出,事实上,这笔汇进李世帅户头。监视器录下他在住处不远处银行提款机中转帐的影像。

美国银行觉得帐户有异后冻结户头。李世帅12月5日致电询问。他告诉银行,这些存款是由他一名国外友人借他用来付常春藤学校学费、付房租,和其他私人开销的钱。他说,“完全不知道朋友如何安排别人把钱存入帐户”。

警方说,此案开始由国土安全局调查,之后把案子交给地方警检单位。


Brown U. student charged in fraud scheme that targeted elderly woman

By Dan McGowan  from  WPRI


  • PROVIDENCE, R.I. (WPRI) – A graduate student at Brown University was arraigned in District Court Thursday morning after he was charged with obtaining money under false pretenses in a scheme that allegedly targeted an elderly Florida woman.     布朗大学的一名研究生周四早上在地方法院受审,他被控在一项涉嫌以佛罗里达州老年妇女为目标的计划中以虚假的方式获得金钱。


Shishuai Li, 25, was arrested by Providence police after the U.S. Department of Homeland Security informed the city that it was investigating a 74-year-old Orlando woman’s claim she wired a man she met online $30,000 to build a school for underprivileged children in Dubai. Federal investigators say the funds ended up in Li’s bank account.

The woman said she thought she was sending the money to a man she met on an online dating site, according to a police report. The man identified himself as “Luiz” and told her he was in his 60s, the report states.

Homeland Security launched its probe into Li in November after a financial investigations team at Bank of America contacted the agency about a bank account tied to Li that “displayed a pattern of out of state deposits and wires,” according to a police report. The account has received approximately $181,000 in deposits since August.

The bank froze LI’s account in November. When he contacted a bank employee, he claimed the deposits were arranged by a friend who was lending him money, according to the police report. He said the friend lived outside of the country. He also told the bank he used the money to pay rent and tuition.

Brian Clark, a spokesperson for Brown University, said the school learned about the arrest Wednesday. The said the university will “review the incident in the context of university policies and determine what interim measures may be required as a more complete understanding of the circumstances becomes clear.”
