Three Chinese students who impersonated celebrities to defraud fans have been sentenced to prison. 

The trio, who bear the surnames Sun, Li, and Liu, pretended to be stars like Angelababy, Zheng Shuang (pictured above), Ouyang Nana and Dilraba Dilmurat, and cheated fans out of more than 300,000 yuan (S$61,500).
