Universities are taking various measures to warn new entrants about telecom fraud following a recent tragedy in which a college-bound student died after being cheated out of tuition fees which her family had spent months raising.

Xu Yuyu from Linyi, Shandong province, died after suffering a sudden cardiac arrest on Aug 21, 10 days before she was due to begin university life at Nanjing University of Posts and Telecommunications. The 18-year-old was swindled out of nearly 10,000 yuan ($1,500).

In the wake of the tragedy, many universities have moved to educate new students about telecom fraud.
