Highlights

  • Faking a divorce becoming a ploy used by couples in China who are desperate to skirt the nation’s property.
  • Home prices in Lishua have surged as much as 31% in the last two years.
  • A family in Lishui taking it to extreme lengths, through 23 marriages and divorces in a month.

Eleven members of the same family in China allegedly staged 23 phoney marriages within two weeks–all to access free housing.

According to state media, the scam began when a man named Pan heard about the urban renewal compensation scheme in one part of the small village in Lishui city, Zhejiang province.

Local residents were being offered a modest apartment measuring at least, even if they didn’t own property.

Pan quickly decided to re-marry his former wife who resided in the same village, only to divorce her again after six days. Then the entire family started doing the same. Pan married his sister, his sister-in law and last but not the least his former wife within a month.

After each marriage, they registered themselves for the scheme and then filed for the divorce.

The family’s scam was exposed a couple of days ago when the village’s redevelopment team lodged a complaint.

All the members of the family are under arrest. Four of them have been detained, while others have been released on a bail.

China has seen a rapid development over the recent years which is also leading to demolishment of villages for urban renewal projects. In 2011, State Council had passed regulations detailing how residents should be compensated if they are relocated.

This scam shows that there are certain loopholes in the scheme introduced by the Chinese government, due to which such scam took place.
