Default SCAM ALERT

SCAM ALERT
I just learned my unfortunate Chinese brother-in-law fell prey to an online scam and was duped out of $60,000. They claimed to be Chinese law enforcement and we're going to arrest him if he didn't pay.

He was going to the bank to borrow and send another 40k when his wife alerted his sister and intervened. Even after the bank told him it's a fraud, he's still not convinced.

He's still scared he's going to be arrested.

Maybe I should check online if he's wanted and there's a reward?

Thank you
It's worse than I first reported, over $100,000 GONE! He Still didn't want to believe it was a scam until I took him to the FBI and the agent told him it was a scam. So sad. Stressed he was going to jail, now stressed for being duped.
