Warning! If you get a call or email offering you to study in China for free or tell you that you were selected for a scholarship, ask them to send you an email with all the details, and give you their website address. If you see the names "CUCAS" or "Beijing ChiWest" block their number and email and post it online here and other scam reporting sites. This fraud is four years old and being run by a former Chinese government official. Here are the details WordPress Blog Tool, Publishing Platform, and CMS

There were over a dozen complaints at fraudwatchers, scamwatch, scam-detector and complaintsboard.com but they have been using hackers to corrupt the link and then get them deleted. These guys are pro and at the average victim loses $1,000 - not enough to fly to China to file a police report or court claim. (You cannot file any complaint in China by proxy - you must personally go to a police station in China) There are still few complaints form 2011 and 2012 but they are buried deep on search engines.

Their victims are mostly high school seniors and university students. They only just recently stopped using the BBB logo on their brochures but they still use a fake edu.cn domain. (There is no BBB in China). This gang is very, very, slick. Be careful. Do not send them any personal identification they claim they need to process your "scholarship". A former CUCAS employee admitted that the files of people who do not sign up are sold to ID theft rings. If you are a scambaiter have fun with these crooks!
