Customers Say P2P Company Founders Vanished with Money

Kexun, a P2P lending site which received a credit endorsement from Internet giant Baidu Inc., has been hit by a string of fraud complaints. At least 958 people had filed complaints by the morning of June 25 for possible investment losses worth nearly 57 million yuan in total, China Business News reports. Several customers allege the owners of the company have disappeared with the company’s funds as the site has been closed under the name of maintenance since June 9. The highest single investment was more than 2 million yuan from a Zhejiang investor. “Kexun” was a platform rated by Baidu’s Credibility V Project, a network credit system that determines a website’s comprehensive credit by collecting data including its business entity qualification, authenticity and word of mouth evaluation.
