Magic Sex Change Fraud

Man pays 230k yuan for magic sex change



By Xu Tianran

Hoping that he could turn into a woman and go abroad, a 55-year-old man was cheated out of 230,000 yuan ($34,201).
Two women who allegedly sold him magic transsexual capsules were arrested and will be prosecuted said Haidian prosecutors Monday.
The Shanghainese victim surnamed Lu met a 27-year-old telephone saleswoman surnamed Yuan in Beijing in 2006.
Yuan learned through their conversations that Lu had a transsexual tendency and wished to go abroad.
She allegedly told Lu she could get him medicine that would change his sex and make him pretty.
It would then be much easier for him to go abroad "as foreign countries welcome women who can dance and sing."
Lu allegedly paid 3,000 yuan ($446.1) for sheep placenta soft capsules from Yuan.
Yuan allegedly contacted Lu again in July 2007 and introduced him to a "medical expert" surnamed Yang and her assistant.
This time Lu was reportedly persuaded to spend 230,000 yuan for "ovary care capsules" and "natural big breast capsules."
The 55-year-old married man didn't realize he was fooled and kept taking the capsules until in June 2008 when an employee of Yuan allegedly confessed to him that the whole thing was a hoax and the capsules he took cost 50 yuan ($7.44) a box.
"The three suspects were arrested and they were transferred to the procuratorate on July 7.
"Police are now gathering more evidence for the Haidian prosecutors," said a Haidian Procuratorate spokesman.
