  • China's latest copycat victim: Goldman Sachs

    A staffer at a Chinese finance company named Goldman Sachs said any similarity to the multi-billion-dollar US investment giant was unintentional Thursday, weeks after a Chinese man was arrested for setting up a fake bank branch. Goldman Sachs (Shenzhen) Financial Leasing Co., operating in the southern boomtown next to Hong Kong, has an almost identical name to New York-based financial institution, Goldman Sachs Group Inc. "We don't have any connection with the US Goldman Sachs," a woman who answered the company's listed phone number told AFP. The company uses the same Chinese characters as Goldman Sachs does officially in the country, the world's second-largest economy.
