High School Students Tricked Into Joining USDA

Source: Democratic Voice of Burma

Unsuspecting high school students in Rangoon were tricked into joining USDA, unhappy parents complained to DVB. The students were each asked to supply a passport photo, and USDA membership cards were issued to them.

A parent told DVB:

“We thought the photos were meant for official forms for matriculation exams. But now, all the children are USDA members. It’s a con job. What can we do now? They are never up to any good.”

Another said that while the students have been tricked into becoming members, they are unlikely to be active in the organization.

According to DVB, similar incidents were reported in the provinces earlier in the year.
