30 people prosecuted for sale of fake Taiwan antlers

TAIPEI, Taiwan -- A group of 30 people led by a woman, surnamed Hsiao, were prosecuted by the Tainan District Prosecutors Office for fraud over the selling of New Zealand-imported red deer antlers under the name “Taiwanese antlers,” yesterday.

The group was caught in April last year. The police said that the criminal group sold the antlers at many popular scenic spots and claimed that the alcoholic drinks made via the antlers could provide many benefits to the human body. Each vat of the liquid was sold from around NT$70,000 to NT$100,000.

According to the investigation by the police, the criminal group has defrauded over NT$8.7 million from dozens of people.
