    Post A 90-year-old woman is conned out of $32 million by fraudsters in Hong Kong's biggest

    A 90-year-old woman is conned out of $32 million by fraudsters in Hong Kong's biggest ever phone scam...

    A 90-year-old Hong Kong woman has been conned out of $32 million by fraudsters posing as Chinese officials, police said, in the city's biggest recorded phone scam. Hong Kong's elderly are plagued by phone scammers who seek out vulnerable and wealthy victims willing to transfer money or make bogus investments. Police on Tuesday said scammers targeted an elderly woman living in a mansion on The Peak, Hong Kong's ritziest neighborhood.

    Police said the scam was only spotted because the elderly lady's domestic helper thought something suspicious was happening and contacted her employer's daughter who then alerted officers. After an investigation a 19-year-old was arrested for fraud and has been released on bail, police said. The South China Morning Post reported that the arrested person is believed to have been the fraudster who turned up at the lady's house with the phone.
