  Another year of the college entrance examination season, candidates handed in their answer sheets and walked out of the examination room. While waiting for the college entrance examination scores, candidates and their parents began to learn about their favorite colleges and prepare for filling out volunteer matters.

At this time, many fraudsters also began to make a move, taking advantage of the lack of comprehensive information and luck of candidates and parents to carry out fraud, weaving lies that they can go to prestigious schools with low scores, while defrauding parents of money, it may also cause candidates to miss the normal application for the exam. time limit.

In this regard, the Beijing No. 1 Intermediate People's Court passed a typical case to remind the majority of candidates and parents to apply for the exam rationally and not to take chances.

  In this case, the defendant Liu falsely claimed that he had internal agreements with a number of well-known colleges and universities, and he could help those who did not reach the score of the college entrance examination through various methods such as "reserved places", "reserved places in the plan" and "trust relationship". Candidates with corresponding college admission scores enter well-known music conservatories or foreign famous schools, and promise to receive a full refund.

In the end, Liu defrauded more than 800,000 yuan from the parents of 9 college entrance examination students.

  The court of first instance sentenced the defendant Liu to commit fraud and sentenced him to 11 years in prison, two years of deprivation of political rights, and a fine of 110,000 yuan.

After the second instance, the Beijing No. 1 Intermediate Court ruled to dismiss the appeal and upheld the original judgment.

  According to the judge, in recent years, the use of college entrance examinations to defraud cases mainly includes four types of fraudulent methods: "spending money to buy places", "doing not work abroad", "upgrading scores" and "false enrollment".

  In the scam of "purchasing places with money", criminals use fake special admission methods, falsely claiming that they can find relationships so that students who do not have enough admission scores can also be admitted to colleges and universities, and deceive victims to trust.

For example, falsely claiming that he has a personal relationship with the leaders of the university can allow students who do not meet the normal admission score to be "exceptional" admitted through "reserved places in the plan" and "reserved places", and provide certain training services.

  In addition, some criminals take advantage of the eagerness and luck of candidates and parents to spread the news that they can check in advance or increase their scores by paying a certain fee, so as to defraud money.

  In the "domestic can't go abroad" scam, the criminals seized the psychology of candidates and parents who want to enter colleges and universities, fabricated recruitment plans and channels for foreign colleges and universities, attracted candidates and parents who did not have enough scores to apply for domestic colleges, and defrauded the victims. trust.

  In the past trials involving fraud cases involving college entrance examinations, in order to convince parents that their children have been admitted to colleges and universities, some criminals will make students and parents mistakenly believe that they have actually entered the school by renting houses, hiring teachers, and arranging military training.

In the end, it not only caused the property loss of the parents of the students, but also delayed the youth of the students.

  In this regard, Beijing No. 1 Middle School reminded that whether it is inquiring about the scores of the college entrance examination, or the recruitment information of colleges and universities, and the information of volunteers, the notices from the local education departments and the official websites of colleges and universities shall prevail.

There is no special channel for early score checking. Scores need to be checked through official channels. Do not trust text messages from unknown channels or so-called score checking websites provided on websites, and do not click on phishing links or enter personal identity and account information on fake websites.

There is a strict process for college entrance examination admissions. Only when you fill in the school's voluntary and the score reaches the admission score will you have the chance to be admitted. Do not believe any deception that claims to be able to spend money to buy admission places.

For candidates who plan to study abroad, they should go through the corresponding procedures through formal study abroad institutions, and apply for foreign institutions through formal and official procedures.

  When filling in the application, candidates and parents should have a deep understanding of the admissions policies and information, in-depth research on the admissions policies of the colleges and universities of interest, clarify the difference between different types of admissions, and formulate a scientific and appropriate application plan.

  "The college entrance examination is only an important but not the only turning point in life." The judge reminded that candidates and parents should correct their attitudes, establish correct gains and losses, and find suitable colleges and universities within the limits of performance and ability. Don't take chances .
