Chinese Local Government Warns of Digital Yuan Fraud



Xiongan New District warned citizens of telecom fraud using the digital yuan, according to a Nov. 18 notice signed by the local government and central bank branch.


  • Fraud cases involving China’s central bank digital currency have been making headlines. Just this week, police arrested a woman for defrauding RMB 300,000 ($40,000) using the CBDC. Earlier in November, another 11 people were arrested in Henan province for using the digital yuan to launder money for Cambodian gangs.

  • The Xiongan authorities warned not to use unauthorized sources to download e-CNY apps, not to fall for scammers pretending to be government authorities, or invest in “digital yuan exchanges.”

  • Xiongan district, near Beijing, was one of the first places to pilot the e-CNY.

  • China is expected to be the world’s first major economy to roll out a CBDC. The digital yuan has been used for $9.7 billion worth of transactions, Mu Changchun, the head of the digital currency research institute at the People’s Bank of China, said on Nov. 3.
