Chinese Cheaters Charged With Stealing State Secrets

from the seems-a-bit-extreme dept

Over in China a group of students are being charged with theft of state secrets for stealing exam questions for the national college entrance exam. The scam sounds like a bad movie plot, and it’s surprising that they got as far as they did with it. A few students went in to take the exam, and then left with the questions (it’s unclear how they left and how they took the questions with them). They gave the questions to other students sitting outside who quickly tried to answer the questions, and then send them, via mobile phone text messages, to other students still taking the exam. Students could buy a complete set of answers for about $120 – though, the article quotes one parent complaining that not all the answers were accurate. Next thing you know, they’ll start suing.
