3 Chinese women detained for lining up fake marriages

TAIPEI -- Three Chinese women have been detained on allegations of arranging fake marriages between women from mainland China and Taiwanese men, including those who are homeless, the National Immigration Agency (NIA) reported.

According to the NIA, the mastermind, a 40-year-old Chinese woman identified only by her family name Chang, was arrested earlier the same day along with two other Chinese women by NIA officers, who had been tracing the case on tips provided by informants since March.

Chang and her accomplices were tracked down after one of their customers failed to pass the interview with NIA officers earlier on Monday. Immigration officials typically ask women applying to enter Taiwan as spouses personal questions about their marriage or husband.
