Chinese Police Put a Stop to Fake Lottery Ticket Racketeers

News has recently emerged from China about a police raid on two print works that were producing counterfeit lottery tickets designed to mimic those used for Hong Kong's popular Mark Six Lottery.

The Foshan municipal public security bureau states the print works in Guangdong Province were shut down on May 28, 2014. Almost 200,000 illegal tickets were seized from the cities of Guangzhou, Foshan and Zhaoqing, and 31 people were arrested.

One of the factory workers admitted the presses had been running for two years and had already printed 78 million tickets with market  value of 200 million yuan (USD$ 32,116,670).
