    18 jailed in scam to cheat UPS - Eastday

    EIGHTEEN gang members who cheated the United Parcel Service, causing a loss of more than 9.8 million yuan (US$1.55 million) to the shipping company, were dealt criminal sentences yesterday from the Pudong New Area People's Court.

    The gang took the advantage of UPS's DWS freight weighing system, in which a parcel is weighed twice and the system will scan the bar code on the parcel and select the lighter weight to calculate the shipping expense, the court heard.
