By Jason Pan / Staff reporterLaw enforcement authorities on Tuesday warned the public against real-estate fraud following two complaints in New Taipei City and Taoyuan. A New Taipei City man surnamed Chuang (莊) filed a complaint about a real-estate agent who allegedly cheated him out of tens of millions of New Taiwan dollars during a housing transaction. After looking at the house twice, Chiu told Chuang that he was satisfied with it, and they settled on a price of NT$20.1 million. Chiu then hired a real-estate agent surnamed Shen (沈) to handle the details, Chuang said. After failing to locate Chiu, Chuang and his lawyer filed a complaint with the police, he said.
