Over a hundred passengerless coaches have taken to the streets of Linfen, Shanxi province, allegedly to rack up enough miles to secure the extra funds. Residents told Beijing Time that the buses, operated by Linfen Xinyu Tourism Co. Ltd., have been running from roughly 8 a.m. to 5:30 p.m. every day since October, with only a driver aboard.

In January, China implemented a guideline to better regulate the burgeoning new-energy vehicle industry. The standard called for “non-private” electric vehicles to rack up 30,000 kilometers in order to receive government subsidies. Companies like Linfen Xinyu, whose buses are categorized as “mid- to heavy-duty,” can receive up to 500,000 yuan ($75,000) in subsidies per new-energy vehicle, or one that is mostly or entirely powered by electricity.

The company’s manager, surnamed Hao, has denied any subterfuge or foul play. He told Beijing Time that the buses were running to keep their batteries performing well during the chilly winter months. Temperatures in Linfen over the past few weeks have occasionally dropped below freezing...

...More than 20 villagers participated, nine of whom were told they were at risk of disease. Oddly, all of the diseases centered around the reproductive organs — specifically, the uterus (dạ con, tử cung) and the prostate (tuyến tiền liệt).

The three staff members who carried out the checks then offered to drive the nine at-risk villagers to the hospital for further screening and treatment, promising to provide half-price discounts on medications, should they be needed.

At the hospital, the villagers were charged hundreds of yuan for medication, with some opting for additional procedures that cost even more. One woman even had a surgery to remove a “cervical polyp” (u xơ cổ tử cung) which may or may not have been present, and which cost her more than 4,700 yuan ($710). With all expenses accounted for, what started as free checkups costs the villagers over 11,000 yuan.

The villagers, meanwhile, said the staff spent hardly any time examining them before asking them to pay for medications. The woman who underwent the invasive surgery was not even given a medical report — just a bill for the procedure.

The scam was exposed in an online forum by a netizen claiming to be a relative of one of the villagers...
