Barbie Cheated Out of 3,300,000 USD After Man Pretends to Be Manager

The American company Barbie sent personnel to Wenzhou to report that 3,200,000 USD had been stolen from them. Investigators have confirmed that that amount of money was wired to a bank account in Wenzhou during the “5-1” Holiday. A man pretending to be high-level management at Mattel, the company that makes barbie, said he needed the money to purchase another company. Later employees discovered that they had been scammed. The case is still under investigation, but the account that the money was wired to has been frozen.
