Can anyone tell me what type of Bianchi frame this is?

My bike got stolen a few days ago and as I currently live in Shanghai, I desperately need a new bike to get around the city.

Am thinking about purchasing this Bianchi, but after hours of research, haven't been able to determine what frame it is. The seller claims that the frame originally was white, then painted black after having owned the frame for 6 years. He had also previously bought the bike from an expat who had been riding it for years before that. So I reckon the frame is around 8-10 years old, if it is indeed a real Bianchi frame.

Appreciate any help!
Thanks!

Shanghai? China? Funny how both real and fake things come from the same place. I'm gonna say it's fake if you can't find anything that hints that it's a bianchi (other than the big decal). Bike doesn't look "Bianchi-y".

It seems like updates to the banned users thread are optional, if they feel like talking about it. I've noticed a couple people get banned without mention. Not that I mind, but sometimes the descriptions are funny.

OK so the bike has been stripped of its original components, painted a different color (although we now the original was white, which really narrows it down) and bought second hand in an unknown country from an "expat" of a second unknown country which is where the bike was possibly originally sold.

Looks like an early 2000s alloy something or other. Bianchi has a habit, atleast Bianchi USA anyway, of using the same frame across several models so finding the original ID of this is almost impossible.
