Chinese fraudster in Vanuatu

Investors, banks and the general public n Port Vila, are warned to look out for a Chinese national from Fujian Province known as Zhang Yumin, who is reported to be in Vanuatu, after having been found guilty of five fraud cases in five Chinese cities.

Zhang Yumin’s history shows that on June 23 of 2017, the People’s Court of Jian Yang District, Nanping City in China, had found him guilty of defrauding his clients of 10,000 RMB and ordered to repay the amount to the court as he had the money to do so.

However he did not settle the amount.

On February 03 of 2018, the People’s Court of Jian Yang District in Nanping City in China had found Zhang Yumin guilty of defrauding his clients of 180.000 RMB. He was ordered to repay the amount to the court for the people he had defrauded but he did not settle the amount.

On May 18 of 2018, the People’s Court of Huli District, Xiamen City in China, had found Zhang Yumin guilty of defrauding his clients of 96,000 RMB. Once again he was ordered to repay the amount to the court for the clients he defrauded but he did not comply.

On July 14 of 2017, the People’s Court in Jian Yang District, Nanping city in China had found Zhang Yumin guilty of defrauding his clients of 870,000 RMB. He was ordered to repay the amount to the court for the people he defrauded.

However instead of obeying the court to repay the amounts as specified, he escaped to Vanuatu using his Vanuatu Citizenship Card.

The report from China claims he is located in the vicinity of Korman Stadium and owns a farm on the Teouma Road. “The Chinese Community in Vanuatu and the general public of Vanuatu are warned to be careful of the Chinese individual”, the document warns.

“He has now been located and soon he will be recalled to China to face the law for failing to obey the court orders”.

Asked to confirm the report, Corporal Willie Rexona says the Transnational Crime Unit in Port Vila was not aware of any criminal report on the Chinese national except that he is a permanent resident of Vanuatu.

He denies receiving any such information from the Ministry of Foreign Affairs on Zhang Yumin adding that all Chinese nationals applying for permanency in Vanuatu, are screened by the Head Office in Hong Kong in order to approve of their applications.

“The onus is on the staff of the Office in Hong Kong to make sure all Chinese nationals applying for Vanuatu permanent residency permits have a clean slate”, Rexona adds.
